I give you A-Jay, Charlidh, Ameiliah, Blaiyre, Boudicca, Blu-rayne, Foozy, Deztany-Rose, Madison-Bluebell

My favourite is Wyntrr. They could at least have added an h to the end though.

Just noticed that DD2 has virtually one of the same names, as mentioned in the OP' original post, but without the suffix attached grin

There are always going to be exceptions to the general rule...however, that doesn't mean that the large majority of children bearing these fancy names, don't belong to a certain socio-econmic background.

I sometimes think, the parents create these exotic names, in an attempt to give their child a certain memorable status - in an environment where other conventionally accepted status markers (good education, professional career, nice house, smart car) really generally aren't ever going to be an option for their child.
