Alkira Mathilde Cameron Aares

Portrait of Alkira

Alkira Mathilde, 10 Days Old.
Portrait by Lee Cameron - Click to enlarge

One week after her birth, Virgil and Julie chose names for their little daughter. Grandmother Lee Cameron, who arrived in Oslo just days after the birth, writes about the baby's Naming Day:

Dearest Family and Friends,

I am very happy to announce that Julie and Virgil are naming their exquisite, peaceful and contented baby daughter on her One Week Old Birthday.

She is named: Alkira Mathilde Cameron Aares.

Alkira has the Aboriginal meaning of "blue sky". Little Alkira was born on a beautiful blueskied summers day. "Mathilde" means "Strength ln struggle."

Alkira is a gentle, sensitive child. She has Virgil's ears and a face which usually looks like Julie's with flashes of resemblance to Virgil. She is thriving in her devoted parents' care.

With blessings for you all,

your ever loving Lee, Alkira's Grandmutti.
