When I met Rosslyn and her gorgeous children she told me that naming the boys hadn’t been all that easy. They’d fallen in love with the name Huxley for their first son. And with a second boy on the way they needed something with equal gravitas. It’s a story I’ve heard more times than you’d imagine. I went through the exact same thing myself. Trying to find a girls name that felt right alongside a less well known choice for our first-born son.
But here’s the thing. The name you love is perfect. Once you’ve decided, once you’ve landed on a name and you’ve put it to that beautiful little face, they couldn’t be anything else. They pour their indomitable personalities into those names and make them truly special.
I mean really, how could these gorgeous, spirited, wonder-filled, sweet little boys be anything other than Ossie and Hux?
Nic and Rosslyn, thank you so much for letting me into your beautiful home and sharing your morning. It might not have been exactly what Huxley and Oswald had planned for the day, but I hope you’ll agree that we captured a pretty special snapshot of your growing family.
