I like Mia too! It means: MIA: Italian name meaning "mine." Quite appropriate!!

I think 'nanook' is a native word for polar bear.

Rory does seem to fit her quite well.

I like Mia and Rory (I always wanted to name one of my daughters a name that I could shorten to Cory as a nickname like with Corrine, but hubby didn't like it ). I also liked Marney as a name for my dogs, but never fit quite well.

Hmmm. I'm liking Nanook. This is the definition I've found so far: Nanook (Name of alasken malamute that starred in the very awesome movie "The Lost Boys"; cute, kind, caring, perfect)

(We own the lost boys)

I'm sure there's more to it.

This is from www.wikipedia.com: n Inuit mythology, Nanook was the master of bears, meaning he decided if hunters had followed all applicable taboos and if they deserved success in hunting bears.

Nanook is the mascot of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and is depicted as a stylized polar bear.

The 1922 Robert Flaherty-directed movie Nanook of the North named its main character after him.

Nanook is also Inuktitut for "polar bear".

Isn't there a Nanook in one of the Jack London novels? Can't remember it's been awhile since I read them. Maybe it just seems familiar from Lost Boys, seen it alot. Will you call her Nanook all the time? I was thinking you could use nickname Nana, like in Peter Pan.

I know someone who has an Aussie named Aurora (Rori for short). I thinks it's a nice name .
