Those are my criteria, too! If "Marion" hadn't been my grandmother's name, I might have chosen something else because I know she'll have to spell it out for the rest of her life. But at least it's been a real name for 500 years!
I felt bad about vetoing David's choice, because he was a little sad not to get to honor Grandpa Jack and I wanted to let him pick an alternate, but I just couldn't get behind "Tamsin." If we lived in Britain, sure. But yeah, the other candidates were Jennifer, Elizabeth, Charlotte, and Emily. Real names! My (very white) neighbor's kids are named Sukhi and Zayden, and I just...can't. I'm sure she's very nice, but no. Those are not real names, lady.
