I've never had any comments personally, but I've read on this board and others that Rain
is depressing and why would you want to name your child that. Rain
is a personal subtle connection to my writing and also to Scotland. I want something like Thistle or Alba
to do the same thing for another girl. I'd love Alba
Thistle, but that's maybe too much.
Tistel is the Swedish spelling which would be appropriate here in Finland. And closer to the English than Ohdake.
