I just saw this and had to come straight on here and mention it - it's not a child, but so fun! I was watching The Inspector Lynley Mysteries (a BBC programme) and one of the actresses credited was named ... Honeysuckle Weeks. According to her Wikipedia page, her parents chose it because the honeysuckle was in bloom when she was born, and her middle names are, get this, Hero and Susan. Honeysuckle Hero Susan Weeks! Her siblings are Perdita and Rollo.
auburn all I can say is that her parents had without doubt fantastic taste in names!
One of my co-workers named her child Jailey a few weeks ago. Which sounds cute (though I can't imagine a 40-year old with that name), but did she seriously have to choose to spell it like JAIL-ey?? I live in the Netherlands, so she won't get teased about it much here *I hope*, but my co-worker and her husband are thinking of moving to the US.. Poor kid :( .
I am in Aus too, I love the sound of Acacia, and even considered it for my daughter, but I am so allergic to Wattle! lol. I sneeze all spring.Quote:

Two more from the pool: Althea, who looked to be about 8 or 9; and Juniper! At first I thought he said Jennifer, but it was definitely Juniper. I've never heard of a Juniper in real life, and it was definitely refreshing. She was probably 6 or 7, and her friend was named Kaylee (or Cayleigh, Kaylee, etc). And Althea-- I've always really liked that name.
A few years back, a lady at my church had a little girl named Juniper "June". I always thought Juniper was refreshingly unique, and even June is not a name you see on small children, so I really liked it. Her brother was named Elliot, and I couldn't help but think of E.T back then, but the name has grown on me since then.
