Only at your leisure, of course, but: do you have a headcanon for why, in your Sam/Andrew future (on which I dote) they've named their children after Shakespeare characters?
Awww thank you so much for asking!
Their second is
Reginald Christopher on his ration book and when he’s in trouble.
Christopher for his grandfather, obviously, and Reginald for his
father’s old friend Rex Talbot. They couldn’t face actually calling
him Rex, though, and Sam said he never looked like a Reggie for a
didn’t think consciously about Shakespeare in nicknaming him Robin, but
it was probably in the mix.
They did think consciously about Shakespeare in
naming their oldest. As Sam explained rather hazily (when the baby was
about twenty hours old and Andrew had reluctantly agreed to go to sleep
on the sitting-room sofa if his father solemnly promised to sit with Sam
and the baby), Miranda means miracle, like in the Christmas
carol,res miranda pares forma gaudeamus, but it’s also a bit
like naming her after Rosalind since they’re both names out of
Shakespeare, but not too much so, because a child might worry seeing her
own name on a gravestone. She trailed off as her father-in-law got up abruptly and
went to the window.
“Do you mind terribly?” she asked. “That we didn’t…?”
“Sam,” he said, in a voice she’d never heard. “More than enough. That you thought about it.”
