Demelza. Wish I was brave enough.

@Bunty Be brave! It's a great name. Actually, I don't think Demelza is a particularly 'out there' name. I know a Demelza, Karenza and Zelda. I am Cornish though!

Love, love love Dorothea (Middlemarch).

@BuntysOven, I agree with Charlotte, Demelza is a gorgeous name !
