    It appeals but I tend to think of a horse’s coat colour first http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/roan

        I love Bay for the tree/herb so I’m with you on that one.

        Sorrel does appeal, there was a Matilda Sorrel in a BA recently but I don’t like that it comes from a word meaning “sour”. Well, at least I think it does.

        Bay on a boy or girl? Does it really come from sour that puts me off a little. What about Sage? (there was a girl on private practice called this)

        I don’t tend to like siblings starting with the same letter. Is Sigrid masculine?

        No, Sigrid’s a girl. I know one other Sigrid whose siblings are called Claudia, Samuel and Dominic. That Sigrid goes by Ziggy, which I think is really cute πŸ™‚

        Ziggy is gorgeous! what country does Sigrid come from?I like Claudia & Dominic Samuel not so much. I know of a wee Klaudia born last week.

        I think Sigrid originates from Scandinavia, I’m not too sure though. Lemme check πŸ™‚ Yep, it’s Old Norse, and it means ‘A Beautiful Victory’. Ziggy’s middle name is Mary, which means bitter, so I guess her name means ‘A Beautiful, Bitter Victory’. Sounds almost poetic!

        Sigrid Mary has a cool meaning πŸ™‚ thanks for looking it up πŸ™‚ I don’t know why I thought it was masculine sounding!
