Your mission...

...if you choose to accept it. Name the baby!
Come up with a girl's name by combining our names. Karen and Brad (or Bradley).

There are a few ways to accomplish this:

1. Combine Syllables
Taking whole syllables is an easy way to create interesting names. For example, John + Andrea could make Jondra, Annon, Andran, Joan, Joanne, Ondra etc. Play with spellings as well as sounds. For example, would Jondra look better than Johndra?

2. Combine letters
There aren't many syllabic possibilities of you have short names. For example, Jane and mark would get you Jark or Mane...not very nice names! you can play around with letters as well. For example, Jane + Mark would get you Maran, Jana, Kara, etc.

3. Probably a combination of the above two would work best
Since names aren't perfect, a creative combination of letters, syllables, and anything else would probably work best.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I helped deliver a Brenley last week, I like that one. Mil and Nat and Bren. Although I am especially partial to Lard and Krab. :)

Take the letters from both names and put them in alphabetic order. Easy, efficient, and unique.
