We're not Welsh, I just think it's lovely. It's easy to pronounce, easy to spell, and not too long.

Is this just hormonal madness or is it a nice name?

I like it. And I like Cam as a nickname.

I think it's quite a nice name and Cam is a nice nickname.

I have to say, though, when I saw the thread title I thought, at first, it said Cumbria.

Capital city of Australia?

Canberra...? confused

I like it. And what sort of person laughs at someone's name? Children don't; they take names at face-value. I'm not saying children don't tease people over their names, but Cambria...? I really don't think it's going to pique too many bullies' interest.

Yes, rocks and fossils here too.

You're famous, OP. Now. Who put Cambria forward for such an article...

Sorry it's too similar to Cumbria

No

Wow, famous.

Someone on my FB who I 'know' from another forum called her DS Hendrix.

My closest ever brush with fame, and I can't tell anyone I know as we're keeping potential names secret until baby arrives!

That was a very interesting article.

I teach a Cambria. She's a very nice girl. I think you should use it!

Someone linked me to this so I thought I would update. We called her Cambria, and I have no regrets. No teasing, no negative comments, no mistaking her for a cheese or a font. Oh, and noone has misspelt or mispronounced it.

I can't imagine her being called anything else. And as a nickname, her grandparents have occasionally used Bree or Breea, which I much prefer to Cam. Perfect all round.
