After much discussing between Kathleen and I yesterday we have decided on a name. There were eight names that we though could be used so it wasn't an easy choice.
So the winner is
"LILLIAN'S BIG OWIE" summited by Betja (Betty)

Again thanks to everyone who submitted names.
"LILLIAN'S BIG OWIE" (late bloom)

WOW, I just opened this thread and saw it -- and I simply couldn't believe it! Thank you so much Fred and Kathleen! And thanks for the congrats, too, everyone. This was one of my more "fun" name suggestions, and it just shows that you can never predict what the Mannings will go for. And I must admit that the name is growing on me already -- and it's certainly unique!

Thanks so much again, Fred! And I can't wait to get my LILLIAN'S BIG OWIE in the spring!
