The vocabulary word for a boy or man in relation to his parent(s) or that'same boy/man hailing from the place of his birth (the female equivalent is 'daughter'). It is also an affectionate form of address used by any middle-aged or old person to address a boy or man young enough to be his or her'son or grandson. It is also one of those faux amis (i.e. 'false friends') in the French language - it is the French word for 'his' or 'her' and the French translation of the English word 'son' is 'fils', so 'son fils' would mean 'his son' or 'her'son' (the French word 'son' standing, in a case like this, for 'his' or 'her' while 'fils' is the one that translates as the English word 'son'). The French word for 'sound' is also 'son', as in 'son et lumiere' (meaning 'night-time entertaI'ment at ancient building with recorded sound and lighting effects to give dramatic narrative of its history').

I am considering this name for my 3rd. I am 43 and have an 11 yr old girl and 10 year old boy. This little "surprise" was the result of a little trip to Bermuds. One of the highlights was a tour of the perfumery there, where we both purchased a new fragrance. The perfumery is called Lili Bermuda - so I thought that might be neat...or it could be a boy and then I'm back to square one!
