I heard a very loud family in a restaurant recently with a Verity, William, Theo and baby Esmerelda.
I felt a tiny bit sorry for her - her older siblings called her exclusively 'Esmie', her dad was adamant on 'Elle' and her mum called her Esmerelda, with the occasional 'Mimi'. Poor kid probably doesn't know what the heck her name is, but I'm sure she'll appreciate the choice of nicknames as she gets older!
I heard of a baby boy named "Killian" today...
I know half sisters named Summer and Autumn (with different last names). They have a little brother named Michael.
I met an Agnes today I was very excited :)
A teacher at my school had her baby boy over the weekend. His name is Eben Elisha.
At the park this morning for a walk and I heard a woman shouting her daughter, and she was calling her Anne. I thought that was so pretty, but then she shouted her son too, and she was shouting 'Anne, Hank!'
Great names, don't get me wrong, but I don't think they work together. While she was shouting 'Anne, Hank!' All that I could hear was 'Anne Frank!'
My school bus broke down last week and we had to take a different bus. I was looking at the seat placements and I saw a Delores. While it's NMS, I thought, Wow, her parents are so cool with names! Until I looked at her last name, which was double barreled. That in itself isn't bad, until you look at it and one surname ends with -ess and the other -ez. Delores Somethingess-Namez (obviously not her last name). A bit rhyme-y, IMO.
I also ran into a thirteen year old Isla when I was interviewing people for yearbook. She was surprised when I spelled her name right.
All 18 year olds:
Forgot to add - theres a new set of twins at Hazel's daycare - Frank & Betsy.

My Uncle and his wife had a new baby girl named River. I think it's nice, uncommon but not crazy. Her brothers are Conner, Fletcher, and Vander. People in my graduating class have started having kids too, I've come across Allen, Colby, Lilyana, and Leila.
My mom recently got a cockatiel and named him Chester :grin: not a person name but could you think of a better name for him?
