Hi Jessamyn,

As a teacher in China sometimes you get to name children. Well, give them English names. So tonight at a restaurant a young girl was drawn to me at the prodding of her English speaking aunt. I asked if she had an English name. When the answer was negative I then asked if she’d like me to giver her one. When she replied, “yes!” I quickly came to the decision to name her Jessamyn. I told her it was a special name and that it wouldn’t be common. I assured that it was a good name for lovely, smart girls. BTW, she is 5.

I give you, Jessamyn.

What do you think?



  1. This makes my insides smile.

  2. Oh my. That a brought a tear to my eye and warmed my heart.

  3. Yanno, she even looks like you…

  4. What a cutie! I can’t wait until she’s old enough to google her English name — I hope she finds herself.

  5. Wow, very, very cool and warm and fuzzy at the same time!

  6. I was hoping you knew about this. How very sweet!

  7. What a lovely note!

    It’s a shame that the picture triggered something that my at-work web filter (don’t get me started) blocked.

    Of course it’s true that the name is a special one.

    love and peace.

  8. she is charming, like her namesake

  9. Ok, that’s 10 kinds of awesome cute in any halfway decent universe. Congrats on your first clone child. Soon we will be overrun by an army of Jessamyn cutebots.
