One Small Change

We've been discussing the name a little more and checking it out from all angles and we decided to tweak it just a little bit. There's something in Japan called 姓名判断 (seimei handan) which is a kind of numerology based on the number of strokes in the kanji for the name, and the balance between the different characters. Apparently Suzune is badly balanced and therefore "unlucky", so we looked for another similar name with a luckier number of strokes. (NB I don't believe this stuff, but when in Rome...). We'd already been calling her Suzu-chan for quite some time, so we stuck with that, but we changed the 音 (ne-sound) to 奈 (na-a kind of tree).
So at 36 weeks and counting the new official name is Suzuna (鈴奈) bell-tree.
