Welcome, Marina Misaki Alioto!

marina

After a mere 5 hours of labor and no epidural, Marina Misaki Alioto (click here for more photos of ME!) was born at 7:05 am on March 26, 2008. Marina is named for her mami and papi's love affair with 2 beautiful port cities, for her great grandfather's years as a fisherman in one of those cities and for her sister who happens to have their favorite first name. Marina is pronounced the same way in English, Spanish, Catalan and Japanese. Her second name means "beautiful bloom or blossom" and originates from the myriad suggestions from Japanese family and friends in their second home… Kyoto.
