Thanks everyone for your suggestions.  I guess it is (may be) Sundog, taken from my absolutely favorite book store which is app. 1,000 miles from where I live.   :'(


 ;)  I recognized that pic as soon as I saw it & though "Perfect choice - Sundog!"  (I live not far from Seaside...)

    I need help naming my Kindle too!  I don't want to just settle on something - it has to be perfect.  Thinking something with a K since Kindle starts with K and so does my first name...   but I want something unique and pretty.   Any ideas?

    I had a friend named Kaki way back when I was about 6 years old. I haven't thought of her in years and her name just popped into my head when I read your post!

    Great name!! (but of course I'm biased, I love my Aunt Kay).

    Interesting that it says it's pronounced KIGH-ko.  We always pronounced it KAY-ko.  Maybe she anglicized it....  I never knew it meant "my adored one."

    Miles O'Brien's wife was Keiko on Star Trek Deep Space 9.  They pronounced it Kay-Ko

    Meemo, so where are you?  I envy you -- 'cept maybe in hurricane season.  I've got some of Seaside and the beach here.  My condo is full of shells, sand, bottles of gulf water, a pelican feather, etc., etc.  It does look kinda like a Florida beach cottage -- everything but the view!

    But then Sausalito is for sale!

    My bro beagle (1954-1966).  I still miss him big time.
    His last collar hangs on my bedpost.

    That's funny about pronunciation....   "Kay-Ko" reminds me also of the Whale from Free Willy so I'll probably pronounce it that way myself.  :)

    How about Florida?  That way you will always have Florida with you.

    I'm in Niceville - about 30 minutes away.  I can live with hurricane season - it's cold weather I can't handle!
