    Names you hear in a toy store!

    So I work weekends in a toy store on the Gold Coast, Australia, and every week I'm stunned by some of the names I hear, both in good and bad ways to be honest!
    So far this week I've heard about a zillion Charlotte's, which is inconvenient (that's my name) but I've also witnessed mum and dad yelling out to:
    - Nixon
    - Cisco & Velvet (siblings)
    - Maggie & Perry (siblings)
    - Adanna
    - Lala (wondering if this was a nickname? Pretty sure it'd have to be...)
    - Aurora & Freddie (siblings)
    - Bridie
    - Devon (f)
    - Ellie & Evie (siblings)
    - Enzo

    Wondering if anyone else works in a similar area of retail or with kids and have heard some great ones! :) I'll make sure to post if I hear anything else cool!

    Some cute names there! Nixon, Cisco (thats so cool!), Perry, Bridie and Enzo are all awesome.

    I don't work anymore but before I got pregnant, I used to volunteer at the local library and read to the kids on the weekends sometimes.

    Some memorable names were:
    Indigo & Mika - Sisters
    Quincy (b)
    Brooks
    Novalee
    Marty
    Dante & Christiana
    Fleur

    They're pretty normal too me now but back then I thought they were pretty uncommon/unusual.
    Mum to:
    Fable Arizona & Amity Seraphina (2010)
    + Baby Boy due in September

    @lucyyjames Indigo & Mika are a lovely sibset! And Brooks is just great! Hah I still think they're pretty unusual considering that most kids I seem to encounter are either called Ava, Ella, Jack or William.

    Awesome names!

    I also work in retail, in one of the big department stores (think Big W, Kmart etc) so I hear plenty of parents calling their children. Olivia is a favorite, I'm always getting little girls who are excited to meet me because we share the same name.

    But here are a few cool names I've heard (that I can remember)...

    Briar (boy)
    Jezebel
    Arianna
    George "Georgie Porgie"
    Robert (Now I realize that its only outside the top 100 in Australia, but it was so refreshing to meet a little boy called this)
    Freya

    Jezebel?! Oh that poor girl. I'm assuming with a name like that the parents aren't religious but even so, at least in America and probably in other parts of the world Jezebel pretty much means an extremely sexually loose woman, and is kind of interchangeable with harlot or prostitute.
