Aloha

So maybe I've mentioned my sister lives in Hawaii (mentioned it once or twice or a hundred times) and you maybe know about our site-that-shall-not-be-named where she writes our babies names for us in the sand and takes a photo. We are in the process of trying to find another name and starting up again (for now go on over to my site PregnancyLossRibbons.com but you didn't hear it from me)

I've been thinking a lot about the word "Aloha" and want to use that in our new name. Aloha is used for both 'hello' and 'goodbye', which for many of us is exactly how we greeted our babies- saying hello and goodbye at the same time.

But as I was researching it a little more I found out Aloha also means love, peace, compassion and mercy. How wonderful! One little word. Perfect.

Any ideas for new names for our new site? Nothing already trademarked, please! LOL

Aloha,
emily

you could do something like aloha names or Aloha, not hello not goodbye. I don't know I am SO not good with these things. I hope you find one. I hope you can start the names again. Its been SO great for us to have this site. Good luck to you.

is there any way that your sister can name it just using the hawaiian language? I know that the hawaiian language has too many accent markers. But I'm just throwing it out there. Or how about Aloha my heart's desire? I don't know but good luck.

Aloha Angels.

I like what Ter said.

I like how your mind works! I had thought of Aloha Angels also, but it is taken.

I know not everyone loves the term 'Angels' when referring to our babies so I wasn't sure about using 'angel' in the name.

Keep the ideas coming! It is one of these things I am going to just let simmer until I find one that feels exactly right (and isn't trademarked, duh)

Hmmmm, I'm still thinking too.. (and I struggle with the term angel.. but HAVE been on websites where they use the term with a disclaimer/explanation that they mean it as a term of endearment and NOT implied that our chldren have actually become angels).

I'm leaning towards Aloha Remembered
