The New Normal Podcast The podcast for multitasking parents - a casual discussion about everything and anything pertaining to life as working parents.

September 15, 2015  

Writer, editor, author, mum and all-round awesome lady of letters Lorelei Vashti has always been obsessed with baby names, so when it came to name her firstborn, she gave the topic a lot of thought. So much thought, in fact, that it turned into an article, which turned into a book-to-be. We discuss the fascinating topic of naming your child, specifically which of the eleventy-billion surname options to choose.

Listen to the reasons that the three of us each went different ways with our (and our kid's!) surnames, including taking the maiden name, using the father's name and a blend of the two!

Check our Lorelei's recent baby names article, her excellent book Dress Memory.
