    Ruaidhrí is a fantastic name, that kid could have so much fun with it.

    Bad side is he’ll have to keep spelling it.

    I’d choose Paprika….as a nickname. She’s great, but too closely connected to the spice.

    However, lily is cloesly connected to the flower, but she’s used all over the place, so maybe that argument isn’t so valid.
