Yesterday I met a small baby named Severn. At first I thought mum said it was Seven like the Beckhams' daughter but no, it was Severn like the river. I think I like it although the river's Latin(?) name is Sabrina I believe.

I was at Legoland today and heard a woman summon her two children. They were called Samson and Delilah hmm. Severn is ok.

There's a woman at the kids school who has just named her baby boy labyrinth. I think severn is lovely in comparison.

So is Severn a boy or a girl?

Reminds me of Severn Trent Water, but would be a lovely name if not for that connection. I love the name Lenor, but associations to laundry means I'd never use it.

I couldn't help saying it in a Len Goodman voice.

Although I actually quite like it.

It makes me think of severed or severing. I prefer Sabrina, or even Habren, the original Welsh name for the river.

Sounds like Somerset pronunciation of 'Seven'...

It was a little girl, lovely though I think it would work for either.
