Help Pixie name this daylily!

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

I need help with a name for my daylily, NO prizes awarded if I pick your name, this is entirely for fun and because im not very creative so I need help!! LOL
The name has to have BRIAN in it, this one is for my brother who passed away last Oct. . His favorite color (and mine) is blue and as you well know thats not a color a DL comes in. This was as close to a blue eye (he had blue eyes) as I was getting and the magenta color doesn't hurt my eyes any either. :) You can ask me questions about him if you want more of an understanding of who he was. I'll try to briefly describe him without bragging. (hee he) He was a chef, mechanic, mental health worker, fisherman, father, brother and best friend to many.
You can submit as many names as you'd like, I won't mind...really. ^_^

i second louise's choice - that was my initial thought before seeing louise's post - great minds think alike!

Well I didn't know the direction of Brian's sense of humor, and if he liked Monty Python, so this is either OK or terrible--Life of Brian.

Or, Brian's Dream.

good ones patti

I especially like Brian's Maine Blueberry pie.

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

WOW Patti!! You've been busy!!!!! I like the names you came up with....some of you are hitting it right on the nose without even knowing him. :)
Patti the blueberry pie one is very close to something he used to make for the family. Blueberry Dumplings was a dish my grandmother made and brother Brian was the one to perfect it. :)

I'm going to give you a few more facts about my brother.......

1) He was extremely bow-legged, he was 5' 6" but we used to tease him and tell him if he straightened those bowed-puppies out he'd be 6' tall like the rest of my brothers!! LOL

2) He has 1 child, her name is Brandi -Jo

3) His 3 favorite past times were gardening, cooking and fishing. There wasn't anything he couldn't grow, used to make me nuts. Who grows and harvest a pineapple in Jan. in the State of Maine?? My brother Brian, that's who.

4) He was true blue, honest and loyal as the day is long.

5) When he was young he had a bit of a wild side to him. One example...he broke his wrist in a freak accident when he was 22 - 24 in June....they said no swimming. The Doc put 12 new cast on my brother that summer....one a week and reset the wrist once. (Victor's BRIAN'S ARE WILD is correct. :)

6) He was a tough little man @ 145lbs. He could lift half an engine block by himself when he was a mechanic. One day the car he was working on slipped out of gear and rolled off the ramp pinning him by his legs to a cement wall. He pushed with his arms so his legs wouldn't crush until help could arrive and remove the car. He only had severe bruising...no broken bones.

7) He called me a shorter version of "Chéri" which means sweety, darling or beloved in French. His name for me ( im going to write it how you would say it in English) is "SHY".

8) He also called me his favorite sister.....the jerk, i'm his ONLY sister!!

9.) He was full of ....mischief. ^_^ At the 4th of July party's a water balloon fight would break out and he was usually the one who started it with one of the kids.

10) He also had a good heart and a kind soul. On either Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning he would pick up a homeless person and take them to a local diner he knew would be open. He would give the waitress $50 and tell her to give the man what ever he wanted (no alcohol) and keep the rest of the change for herself.

11. ) He was a great brother, BIL, Father, husband, son, friend, and my best friend. It has been 5 months tomorrow since he left and I still cry at least once a week, sometimes more. I don't think I have ever experienced a loss like this. I expected my parents to die, it was written so from the day I was born. I lost one other brother and the grief didn't destroy me like this. I loved him but we didn't have the best friend bond along with the sibling bond. I talked to Brian 2 - 3 times a week on the phone, we got together every other week and we just had so much in common that he was the male counter-part of me I guess. I feel a great void in my life that I can not fill no matter how hard I try so instead I am directing my energy towards doing good in his name.
Here is one of my most treasured gifts he bought for Brian & My Anniversary last May.

Pixie, he was a wonderful person, no wonder you miss him so much.....many of the names suggested would be perfect for a remembrance.....

central, NJ(Zone 6b)

wish I had met him, sounds like a perfect brother

Nantucket, MA(Zone 7a)

Celeste, To think that trying to name a day lily after your brother brought out such a loving and honest tribute about Brian is quite something in itself. What a reflection of your great bond. You were so lucky to have such a person in your life.

Some of my nearest blood relatives are sadly totally foreign to me. I honestly would have great trouble writing much more than a short sentence about them and you all know that I am rarely short of words. Patti

Brian's Blue Lobster ( or Lobstah) --- I think Patti said it first




I think it should be something that reflects something nice about him. Then there's the way the plant goes into blue, so even something as simple as Brian's Blue.

oops sorry, yes I forgot the "H"

Gosh, Patti...you are creative with the names....I really like Brian's Blue Celeste....

Southwest , NH(Zone 5b)

I'm liking Jan's True Blue Brian.....

Southwest , NH(Zone 5b)

But also Brian's Blue Celeste. Patti came up with a lot of good ones. Celeste, you have lots of good choices!

Southwest , NH(Zone 5b)

Hey, I 've got a great name for it...after much thought, of course. I think It should be named " Celeste's gift to Louise", and I would just have to give that beauty a good home! LOL. See....easily solved.

Salem Cnty, NJ(Zone 7b)

Pffftttt!!! Glad I didn't have any liquid in my mouth. Good one Louise!!
