Also, another friend recently welcomed her second son, Senan Cohen, brother for Cael Quinn. A friend of hers just welcomed Marcus Ettan, brother for Aanya and Laila. Kids who I've met at work (cafe/cinema) are: (semi colons between sibsets) Kitty and Mabel; Alinta, Solomon nn Soli and Eamon; Ossian and Echo (girl) (their little cousin is Archibald nn Archie); Matilda nn Tiggy; Ava and Neve; Jock; Harper (boy) and Everson nn Evvy (girl); Silas, Finn (twins), Nellie, Casper and Frankie (b/g twins); Sonny and Olive; Ochre Blue (boy) and Alchemy (girl) (found out through family friends they have 3 little girl cousins named Wren, Sage and Nia); Essie and Alice; Annika and Ollie (girl, not short for anything); Oscar Willow; River Jane; Manon nn Mannie; Zeke, Dante and Eligh (twins); Caleb, Levi and Evie Joy;
Kids I have babysat are: Wynne and Peregrine nn Pip; Raphael Leo nn Raffy and Maya Malika; Jarrah Edwin Jack, Malakai John nn Kai, Luka David and Joseph Roger nn Joe; Taro (boy), Hanako (girl) and Sascha Jade; Marlo (boy) and Wynifred Heaven nn Wyni; Demi June and D'cota Lili-Mae (cringe, but she was exceptionally cute); Yvette Alice and Isaiah Joel nn Iji; Ruby May and Neko Jane; Virginia Angela nn Ginny, Georgina Beverly nn Georgie, Richard Evatt and Edward Dane (twins); Ruby Elizabeth and Jasper James; Viva Alvina Ferdinandina (yep), Elias nn Eli and Emmanuel (twins); Yau Ka and Sunday (both boys, from Hong Kong); Emily Mia nn Milly and Evie Grace; Elke Willow, Oscar Vittorio and Nimowei Blixa nn Nim/Nimi; Iona Mavourneen and Dylan Harry; Emmet Dai and Phoenix Anne; Emilia nn Mimi, Gianluca nn Gian (pr Jahn) and Timon.
But the crowning glory of naming stories in my sweet little town is the one I'm always telling on name sites.... siblings Chevrolet nn Chevy (boy), Elcamino nn Momo (girl) and the baby girl Rocket 88 Berry Lullaby. Seriously.
I know a family with children Rose, Blasco and baby Percy. I'd never heard it before either (apart from as a surname- Blasko- on a singer from Australia, where I'm from) but I think it's kind of cute!

A family moved in a few doors down from us recently and my mum was talking to the father. She told me that his children's names are Annabelle, Josephine & William. So cute!
What a cute combo.

Met an awesome early 20 yr old Havanna today. I've always thought the name was pretty but didn't know how it would work in real life. She got a few compliments on her name while we were introducing ourselves.
Watched a Javier Bardem film today which featured some lovely names: Florentino, Fermina and Olimpia.
Saw on twitter a sibset of Sailor (b), Hazzard (b) and Riley (g). Not sure what to make of Hazzard but I like Sailor & Riley. We're actually beginning to consider Sailor for #3.
I am in Brazil, fyi, but here are some names I heard recently or heard from my friends. (I have friends with very odd names.)
Olivia (my baby sister who's 3, I call her Vivi and she calls me Lulu)
Heloisa (or perhaps Eloisa, not sure about the spelling)
Valentina (LOVE, will probably name my child that)
Arion (for both boys and girls)
Gabriel Seraphim (Seraphim is a last name here, but I think it looks pretty)
Nicolau (nn Nico)
Maitê (no idea how to transcribe the pronounciation)
Aqüila Mari (g)
Sofia (nn Sofi)
Sebastian (nn Seba)
Camila Canela (Canela is Cinnamon in portuguese, also a last name in this case)
Amanda Lucci (Lucci also a last name)
Victor Leonidas (Leonidas also a surname)
Yasmin (and her bf Lucca)
Also, my grandma is called Dilce, and her sisters are Dalva, Delza, Doris and Antonia. And my grandpa is called Amador (he's Spanish). And my mum is called Luscila which is very different, esp. due to spelling? If any of them sound common to you, trust me, most of them aren't around here. (I could also make a list of names that are common here but aren't elsewhere if anyone's interested.
