Ok,you all have shared in the Lamby story,so I want to know what you all think about this.
Ok as Robyn was taking us to the airport I was telling her a story about my Gandmother(Who has been gone a long time)
My Grandmother was very short & ornery.Everone used to tease her when she was onery. They would tell her ..GERTI MAE ( her name was Gertrude Mae) you are orney as Cat ****.And she would repley..Who ME ...Im a meek little soul ! I said Lamby reminds me of her alot in that way. Robyn and Jason think I should change Lambys name to..Gerti Mae...

So what do you all think?

I think that is adorable!! "Sisse" is the name Joe use to call his older sister all the time, she recently passed away.

I say do it too! Gerti May is adorable! She has a brand new life to lead, she may as well start fresh. (But she will always be Lamby in our hearts).

I love the name "Lamby" but it doesn't seem as cute when you actually say it.....it comes out kind of "Lammmy". So I vote for Gerti Mae!

My lab at Rainbow Bridge is called Gertie so I'm partial.

In my case it was cause my Grams was so short and orney.And always said ..Im a meek soul. And Lamby is tiny and orney and has that soulfull look in her eyes !

Allright

As the ever so opinionated foster Mom HAAHAA!

I LOVE Gertie Mae. I LOVE the story and I think its fittin! First of all she can be as Ornery as cat****, but she looks at you with those big black eyes and that pitiful "Who Me" Miss innocent look and it FITS! HAHA Of course I am partial and I think little girls should have little girl names. HAHA!

Did you all see her picture and her big blacks she bats at you???? LOL Miss innocent indeed! Teehee!

She is such a love and teeny tiny and ornery. I Vote for Gertie Mae!


Robyn
who was fooled many a time by those precocious eyes!

Heres the Gertrude Meanings I could find and they FIT!
(Am I being persuasive enough heeheehee)

Gender: Female
Meaning: Adored Warrior
Origin: German

AND....

Gertrude

Variations: Gerda, Gertie, Trudy.


Innocent, sincere, and bright-eyed, Trudy is nevertheless almost as outdated as Gertrude, the name it’s short for.

And
Gertrude Female German spear maiden

:eek:)

Does that help?
