When our daughter was born, we named her Myles after my beloved late (1) father, despite family warnings that the name was too masculine (2).
Years later, when I felt she was old enough to understand, I explained to Myles, “Your name is very special .I named you after my own father (3) because I loved him very much .I know he would be proud of you.”
Myles though carefully about this and then said, “I know all that, Mom .But I don’t understand why my grandfather had a girl’s name.”
1： late 已故：前任的
2： masculine 男子气的：有男子特性或外观的
3： name A after B 以B的名字来命名A
