Coming to America

 


All photos courtesy of Woelfert-Puppen, but the doll is mine!

This smiling beauty, handcrafted by Woelfert-Puppen, will travel to America from Germany this week with an unspecified date of arrival, but soon, I hope.  She is my happy birthday present from me to me.

Upon their recent request for name suggestions for another doll, I submitted the name, Nya Imani, which they accepted.  I cannot, however, think of a name for the doll I purchased.  Like Nya Imani's name, I'd like for my doll's name to have a special meaning.  Nya means purpose and Imani means faith.  Both names are of Swahili origin.

Nya Imani's sister is all vinyl and stands 33-1/2 inches tall.  She is jointed at the head, shoulders, hips, legs, and knees.  Her brown eyes are hand-blown glass from Lauscha.  This smiling beauty has a handmade human hair wig.  Made in Germany, she will arrive wearing a butterfly embellished sarong. 

Below are more pictures of my unnamed smiling beauty.   








As Stevie Wonder wrote about his first-born (Aisha--a name I have contemplated), "Isn't she lovely?"  

I am open to suggestions and solicit your help in selecting a name for her.  Thank you in advance.

  2. She is so pretty and I love her hair! She looks like an Aisha and Imani. A soft name that has a beautiful meaning would be nice.

    Congratulations on getting her!

  4. What a sweetie! Happy birthday. I am the worst at names, but Aisha is a pretty name. By the way, did you know that Vanessa means butterfly? Just a little name trivia.

  6. Thanks ladies for your comments and name suggestions. I think I have narrowed it down to one name that was suggested off-blog, but I won't know for sure until my lovely little-big girl arrives.

    Waiting with anticipation...
