O.K. guys. According to the Navy heheh... Shea was born about 4 minutes before civil twilight. I decided to check the sunrise/sunset tables since she was born at 5:04 a.m. I thought this was a good opportunity to find a new middle name lol!!!
So I was thinking of something that had to do with twilight. I don't know if I like TWILIGHT :LOL
When I get the chance I may look up twilight in different languages, but do you all have any ideas????

see if there are any gods/goddesses out there that represent twilight. i thought Aurora at first but she's the dawn..... my baby's name was going to be aurora until i switched to rhiannon. she's still morningstar for her middle name though.

Heheh...
On a hawaiian names site, I have an exact translation for twilight. Ready?
Polehulehu.
Shea Polehulehu.
:LOL
In hebrew, Zahara means bright dawn. However... it's still not TWILIGHT!!!
I don't know if anyone read my birth story, but I figured out that I was also born at civil twilight. I realized this yesterday and checked it out on the website where they list sunrise/sunset/etc times for whatever day you choose.
So now I'm on a mission.
Still looking for help though
Take care,
Karen

hakumei

hakumei: (Japanese) Word for Twilight

Nisha
Nisha: twilight/night

BTW: type CTRL F to get the Find box on your browser and type in the word "twilight" without the ""

I found all these by googling "name meanings twilight" without the "".

Fun stuff! Hope you find one!

Losgann!
Thank you so much! I must still be pregnant to not know that I should have googled it that way.
I like Nisha the best so far. Yumi is good too since my son loves Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi lol
But we're getting closer! Thanks again!!!!
