Congratulations, Prem. An award winner for sure, with a beautiful name too.
Definitely a beautiful name--almost out of a fantasy novel--and a beautiful baby! Many congratulations, Prem!
Prem...congratulations to you and your family for a beautiful new addition!
Congrats, Prem - she's a beauty! I can see the family resemblance from your avatar.
PS - She only gets an orchid if she waters it herself!
awww, the colour on those cheeks!!! such a cutie... Kyrie = 'lord' ... definitely going for top honours there.... great name! Good on ya, Prem. Nice work there mate!
Bench, in this case, we derived Eleise from "eleison" = "have mercy", the first two words of a liturgical prayer, also the basis of the of the old Mr. Mr. song that was a big hit in the late 1980's. So her name, in essence, is a prayer for mercy.
I like... names with meanings are so cool, and important to pick names that kids cannot muck with... better than Tim... i got called "dim" at school by the bullies
Kyrie eleison - down the road that I must travel;
Kyrie eleison - through the darkness of the night;
Kyrie eleison - where I'm going will you follow;
Kyrie eleison - on a highway in the light.
I remember that song, Prem. I remember playing it in my grandmother's Saab as I drove the hour back and forth from her house to the hospital in '85 when she was dying. It was after my first knee operation, so I wasn't working and just barely walking again. I was able to stay with her during what we knew to be her last weeks.
I also think of the Kyrie from Andrew Lloyd Weder's Requiem. It's funny, because on the morning my grandmother died (it was gradual - she had a pneumonia on top of everything else, her fever was massive and she wasn't responsive. I thought she might still hear me though...) I sang her Weber's Pie Jesu. It was Easter week and I knew my mom would be singing it in church back home (she ended up flying up to be with her mom at the end). I love that song. That was one of the last things I remember doing before her breathing stopped.
What's quite cool is that my grandmother was the one who brought a joy of orchids into our lives. They were her last and greatest obsession. While she was sick, I read all her books on their care and cultivation and went to school (home taught) repotting and caring for her over 500 plants in her custom-built greenhouse. After she died, I helped find them good homes (at the time I had a NYC apt and no room.)
So, thank you Kyrie, ala Prem, for the memories and I wish all the orchid joys and blessings that my grandmother gave to us!
