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

Maybe a Narnia fan?

D'oh! When I said Suet I meant Summer ..... grr.... autotext and babies .....

Suet would be a very unusual name.

A baby named Hannibal - the Mum was quite eager to tell me it was the Father's, Grandfather's and Great Grandfather's name also.

I worked with a Gayatri. Not sure if I've spelt that right (as proven by my previous post, spelling's not one of my strong points blush )

It was pronounced guy-a-tree

I've met a little girl called Ladybird.

And two brothers called Zoom and Jet.

BinarySolo Mon 28-Jan-13 18:36:46

I like Jett, but jet as a sibling to zoom? Well I guess it good to have a theme...

<Adds Tor to list>

My aunt is called Erena, should be Elena after her dad's German family, but as my grandad couldn't speak much English when he registered her birth she got stuck with Erena. Always thought it was lovely smile

Someone I know has just had a Payton - never even knew that was a name, or a word for anything. Didnt know if boy or girl.

And with our accent people could say it like Painting.

Oh and I.know a grown up Ember which I love.

I heard a woman in Morrisons shouting her child 'Sherman'.

CheerfulYank Mon 28-Jan-13 18:57:27

I know lots of girl and boy Paytons and Peytons, Gold. smile

It's big in America.

Tor is just an alternative to Vicky as a shortening of Victoria - I know two.

Do you think it is acceptable to use the name Ladybird...? I'm really liking it...

The only Sherman I have ever met was a very large pedigree pig!

I heard a man calling to his son a few weeks ago .... he was called Magic. Never heard this as a name before.

LalyRawr Mon 28-Jan-13 19:06:23

My name is made up.

Alyiousa (Aly-wish-a).

Am current the only known person in the world with that name. Am trying to change that though, am suggesting it to everyone who is pregnant!

HoneyDragon Mon 28-Jan-13 19:12:03


Never met another.

SilentMammoth Mon 28-Jan-13 19:16:03

That sounds like a variant of Aloysia.

LalyRawr Mon 28-Jan-13 19:17:00

My daughter that was stillborn was called Lemon. I craved them ridiculously while I was pregnant with her and couldn't think of a more fitting name for her when she was born.

WandaDoff Mon 28-Jan-13 19:19:50

I went to school with an Omega.

HoneyDragon Mon 28-Jan-13 19:20:44
