special letter

Recently I received a special letter from a woman in London who is converting to Judaism. She explained that she wanted my opinion after reading my most recent  post about names for Kveller, which answered a note from a mom looking for an Italian/Jewish name for her baby girl. “I’m looking for a name for me,” she explained, not for a baby. And she wondered if I would take on the challenge of helping her come up with a name for an adult looking for a new name after a conversion.

Of course I was IN and so was my editor at Kveller.com. Hop over there to read her beautiful letter and the answer I provided. And if you have name ideas, the letter writer is really hoping to read more suggestions in the comments.
