Yes, I agree. Kids will find something to tease other kids about one way or another. And even though Rumi has teasing potential, it’s not like naming him Dick or something where it is almost a given. As for Pedro, I’m pretty sure that is an entirely different name. Pedro = Peter; Pablo = Paul. But it sounds like you are pretty set on Rumi and Luiz, which are lovely choices. Congratulations and good luck with your new little boy!
Girls: Nyla, Tesla, Katiri, or Iris (pn ih-REES like the Greek Goddess)
Boys: Perrin, Cade, Zane, Kellan, Nolan, or Brennan
I like Miles too.
Rumi is a nice name in sound and I like the connection to the poet, but it does sound a lot like Roomy, which could cause some teasing or confused looks when people first meet him. Is the link to literature important to you? I was thinking Pablo Neruda’s writing style reminds me of some of Rumi’s works. Pablo is a nice name, as is his given name, Neftali. Of the other names you listed, I like Luiz best. Alternatively, Remy (maybe short for Remington) is a nice name that sounds like Rumi. If you really love Rumi, though, you should go for it. It is a nice name and whoever knows him will probably think it is really cool.
He should go to his doctor very soon and get some blood work done to find out why he isn’t clotting properly. That’s not normal.

Yogi is smarter than your average car.

I think Zoe is cute on a little girl and sophisticated on a woman. I really like it with your previous options! I like Lena, but am not wild about Eleanor or Magdalena. Carolina might work as a full name too or possibly Jacqueline – with the French pronunciation of course

I found the below online in case it is of use. It is for Ohio. Some states also have lists of things that are permissible to take out of a security deposit routinely, such as maid fees, carpet cleaning, and repainting under certain circumstances, so if the costs they list are part of whatever is considered ok for your state, you kind of have to kiss your money goodbye even if you cleaned thoroughly before you left. You are lucky that the security deposits are so tiny where you live! I would be inclined to just pay it to avoid a hassle and keep my financial and renting reputation intact, but I totally understand the urge to fight it to keep corrupt landlords from getting away with things like this in the future. Good luck!
5321.16 Procedures for security deposits.
(A) Any security deposit in excess of fifty dollars or one month’s periodic rent, whichever is greater, shall bear interest on the excess at the rate of five per cent per annum if the tenant remains in possession of the premises for six months or more, and shall be computed and paid annually by the landlord to the tenant.
(B) Upon termination of the rental agreement any property or money held by the landlord as a security deposit may be applied to the payment of past due rent and to the payment of the amount of damages that the landlord has suffered by reason of the tenant’s noncompliance with section 5321.05 of the Revised Code or the rental agreement. Any deduction from the security deposit shall be itemized and identified by the landlord in a written notice delivered to the tenant together with the amount due, within thirty days after termination of the rental agreement and delivery of possession. The tenant shall provide the landlord in writing with a forwarding address or new address to which the written notice and amount due from the landlord may be sent. If the tenant fails to provide the landlord with the forwarding or new address as required, the tenant shall not be entitled to damages or attorneys fees under division (C) of this section.
(C) If the landlord fails to comply with division (B) of this section, the tenant may recover the property and money due him, together with damages in an amount equal to the amount wrongfully withheld, and reasonable attorneys fees.

I think the name Aurelia is pretty, but would never use it myself because it sounds too much like aureola. Octavia makes me think she should be conquering nations. Tavi might be a cute nn for it though.
I’d respond either way and just put 0 attending in your party.
If you are going to change the spelling, I’d go with Dashel or Dashell. If you go with Daschel, you might get Da-chell or Da-skell (like school).
That is so sweet! He sounds like a total darling.
@Inga, I’m sorry to hear about your husband getting replaced, and the stress the move will cause you, but am so glad you have this back-up plan! As for a place being too small, I know that if you are used to big cities, that can be intimidating. I have lived in cities big and small, and in a town that could easily be described as rural. I think that no matter where people live, they tend to find favorite places and go to them over and over anyway. Unless you love to go to the opera or ballet or something else found rarely outside of larger cities, it may not even affect you too much. I know nothing about Champaign-Urbana, so I can’t comment on it specifically, but for all that there is less diversity in smaller places, there are a lot of positive things too. Housing and other living expenses tend to be a lot less expensive outside of major cities. Also because there are fewer places to go socially, you see the same people over and over. I think this makes it a bit easier to become friendly with your neighbors. And I think no matter where you are, you can manage to find other people who are like you. I’m sorry that this comes at such a rough time for you, but I hope that it all works out for the best for you, and that not living under a cloud of uncertainty will do good things for all of you. Good luck!!
Nice names! I think Levi, Ezra, Caleb, or Abram would work well for first names. Maybe Calvin, Monroe, Xavier, or William as mns.
Wow! That’s a tough one. It depends on a number of factors. How many months of expenses can your savings cover? Why does your husband think the person being interviewed is for his job? Can he talk candidly with his boss and say that he has another job offer and would rather stay where he is, but would need some indication that he has job stability and room for advancement? When would the new place want him to start? Do you think they’d be up for delaying it 5-6 months so you could deliver close to your family or is the need immediate?
All three pronounce it DASH-ul. One is an adult, one is 4, and one is 6 or 7. The last is actually the son of a friend who lives across the country. I don’t get the impression that it is a super popular name by any stretch, but I don’t think people will look at it and think, huh?
I like Dashiell Mark better. I like Dashiell in full much better than Dash though. I think Dashiell is becoming popular often enough that most people will know how to pronounce it, although maybe that is just where I am. I know 3.
I think initials are important if they spell out something bad. Does you mom have a middle name or her maiden name you could use as a mn instead? Or is there maybe another variant of Susan that doesn’t start with an S (Zuzana) or use the meaning of Susan instead (Lily)?

Does she bring it into the bathroom with her when she showers? Possibly the steam is corroding the port or an internal part.
