This week we’re off to France for two interestingly matched siblings, all reasonably young. The first one comes courtesy of a footballer by the name Zoumana Camara. He currently plays for Paris St. Germain, and has made just one appearance for the national team back in 2001. He has two daughters:
Oury fascinates me, she looks like she could be short for Aurore, but there was also a French film director called Gérard Oury who could have inspired the footballer; his real name was Max-Gérard Houry Tannenbaum.

I could really see Mika emerging as a new unisex choice in the coming years, especially here in Europe where we have two notable musicians with the name – one male, one female. Mika Newton represented Ukraine in Eurovision 2011 is female, whilst Mika Penniman, known simply as Mika, has carved out a successful career since crashing onto the pop scene in 2007. On whatever gender, certainly a name to watch for the future.
