    Name sightings

    I thought we could have a kind of ongoing thread about names-- good, bad, interesting-- that we come across in the outside world.

    Today at the pool, there were adorable sisters named Fiona and Daphne.

    I've recently discovered that - forget the Telegraph announcements - The Sunday Times (British) 'Homes' suppliment is excellent for featuring the kind of families who pick really 'wow' names for their children. A little boy named Cairo was a recent find, as were siblings Eero (m) and Panama (f).

    I posted this on another thread but another teacher at my school has a 19 month old Adele. I was so excited!

    Nameberries please list what country your in as well.

    Im in the US. Yesterday, I heard a little girl named Ala...I had thought I had misheard it for AVA but then heard it a second time and sure enough it was Ala.

    Real sisters Fiona and Daphne? Yes! That's always been one of my favorite pairings!

    I can't think of any interesting names I've spotted lately... My husbands coworker recently named her son Jaden Chase... He tried to talk her out of it but she wouldn't listen.

    I'm in Australia, and I saw in the paper the other day, a little girl named Acacia (nn Cacie).

    For those not familiar, Acacia is actually a type of shrub/tree native to Australia, the most common being the Wattle tree.

    I thought this was quite a unique name.

    Haven't come across any children lately, but my professor has two cats named Sebastian and Beatrice, which I thought was a great example of inspired naming. Sebsy and Bea, she calls them...

    I forgot-- the same day I saw Fiona and Daphne, there was a sibset of Andrew and Alice-- lovely! Sebastian and Beatrice are excellent cat names (and human names) and I love Adele. Acacia is definitely intriguing.

    A teacher at my school is named Lucerne-- apparently it's a flower... I'm not sure how it would be pronounced. I also found out one of my teachers named her daughter Sophia, and another (from Wales) has Sian and Valmai.

    Re: Name sightings

    Lucerne - very pretty. It's also the name of a city in Switzerland which is pronounced (at least in English) - Loo-sern.

    I met a little girl the other day called... LaStar... what does everyone think of that?
