    The poor little fawn and white runner duck is still nameless. DH and I can't agree on a name. All he has is pics to go by since he's at an isolated duty station.

    Long story short - my current thinking is to name her after my Ryan. I'd hoped he'd be around to meet the new ducklings. Sadly, he didn't make it. I couldn't even bring myself to order them until I had his ashes back home. Ry was a white fawn greyhound. So if I can come up with something some how based on his name that I like, I'll probably give her that name.

    But I'm not coming up with much.
    Ryann
    Ryanna
    But I don't want to end up calling her Ry

    So I thought backwards
    Nayn - can't add anything to make it something
    Nay - stuck what to do with this

    Using the letters of his name
    Yarn - um, not really what I was hoping for lol



    So, help please!
    Can anybody come up with a name based on Ryan - using the letters in a name or something


    Here's my Ryan

    How about Nyad? Not based on Ryan, but most of the same letters- look up nyads.
