    Hey Sylke,

    I just found your website and it is funny what you found out about the name Sylke – as it is also my name.
    This year I was in China and a very nice girl, which I met in Shanghai, wrote recently to me the Chinese explanation of “our” name and I thought it would be of interest for you.
    My last name is “auf dem Graben” – just for you to understand how she has put together the Chinese name.

    Aftering thinking hard for a long time, i finally come up with a beautiful
    chinese name for you — 高君淼.The promunciation is Gau Jun Miau. Do you
    still remember the four tones I told you? :) The first and second character
    pronounces in the level tone and the third pronounces in the tone that
    first down and then up. 高 comes from “Graben” in your name, and it is also a common family name in China. 君has the meaning of elegance,
    righteousness, respect and honor. The primary meaning of 淼 is the vast area of water. Water has been the symbol of the combination of softness and firmness. Sylke sounds similar to silk and represents softness. Graben, I looked up in the german dictionary but maybe not very accurate, means the tunnels for battle, so it can represent firmness to some extent. That’s why I choose 淼 to fit them both.
    I also got a name for you, according to the pronunciation of name. 诗伊嘉, pronounce as Schi Yi Jia. The three character all have the
    meaning of beautiful, elegent and kind.

    Hi there,

    I was thinking of you today and figured I’d drop you a quick line. I hear you’re still waiting on the little one to be born. I’m keeping fingers crossed that all goes well and that a healthy baby will be joining this world soon :-)

    Keep us posted on any progress!

    Greetings from Dublin,

    Chat with you soon in Yahoo, can’t wait to hear how it was, and you are feeling now, I am sure you are the happiest mommy in the world.

    Kissed, and big hug,

    Hi Ihr beiden. Glückwunsch zu Eurem Nachwuchs! Habe meinen monatlichen Blick auf Eure Homepage geworfen und … sehe Euch als stolze Eltern :o ) Hoffe, es ist so wie Ihr es Euch vorgestellt habt (oder sind die Nächte doch schlimmer?) :o ) Hatte gehofft, von Frank ein Lebenszeichen als Antwort auf meine emails zu bekommen, aber Bernd und ich dachten uns, dass Ihr zwei den Kopf (und die Hände) voll habt. Schickt mir mal eine gültige Tel.Nummer (Handy und Festnetz), dann können wir etwas ausführlicher reden :o ) Bis dahin … nicht die Nerven verlieren und bringt dem Kind nicht so viel Blödsinn bei :o )

    I am very happy to see you enjoying motherhood.

    Talk to you very soon,

    Love your blog! Came across it whilst searching for great broadband deals. The great Talk Talk static IP lie came up, and I just knew you’d suffered as much as me!

    Yes, those bastards! *manic look*
    Thank you!

    @everybody else here:
    Thank you everybody else on this page too – I believe there is a number of people here who I never wrote back to. Shame on me. My only excuse is that I was so busy with Yannick…
