Dear Mihalis and wife:
Did you consider naming your daughter (out of respect) either with your own or your wife's mothers' name(s) ? "Hope", although a lovely name, isn't the equiavalent of "Elpida"; it is simply the translation of a wonderfully sounding Greek name. I really wonder why some of us feel the need to disguise the "Greekness" of beautiful names with those of non-Greek ones, particularly when many non-Greeks adopt Greek ones (because they sound nice, among other reasons). The days of hiding our Greekness must surely be behind us. In any case, I wish your entire family a blessed Easter.
Basil (not Bill !!!) from Toronto, Canada
