So after much mumsnetting I finally looked up what the name Zephyr meant. Like a complete idiot I missed the Zephyros connection and thought that people wear naming their children after Russian marshmallows.

What names have you made similarly wrong but not actually wrongconnectiobs with?

What? A zephyr is a summer breeze or something isn’t it?

A zephyr is a breeze - named after the god of the west wind or something, so a pleasant warm breeze, not a howling gale as the god of the north wind would bring. Don't know what the marshmallow thing is... Will start googling.

I only know what a Zephyr is because of the Red Hot Chili Peppers song! I thought it was a plane til I googled.

Was the name of a car, made by Ford in the sixties I think.

It was a type of marshmallow with fruit through it when I was growing up.

Sorry, should have first said that my family is from the USSR and zephyr is a Russian/Eastern European food.
