I met a lovely little boy and his mum in the US, he was about 5 and was called Caspian.

Maybe a Narnia fan?

My grandmother Lucrezia the bourgias and another family name immaculata as in immaculate conception !!!!!!!

Lucrezia is a top name for a DGM and such a nice change from Ethel and Vera smile

Have thought of a couple more, have met a Loveday and a Grayson, both girls both would now be aged about 10.

I had a Fairy in the first class I taught. She was very sweet and her name really suited her. I also taught a Plum a few years ago. Grew to really like that name but would never actually use it myself! Never met another Fairy or Plum.

fairy, Tuppence and Minnie, the triplets.

A double lesson- don't give your children daft names, and don't make them call their genitals by twee euphemisms.
