I thought that the above photo may be of interest, given that it is the results of a race in France and thus illustrates some male names used in France. The names that stood out to me were the two Geoffroys, the Romaric and the Bart.
Elsewhere, I discovered last week that there’s a road in England somewhere called Lewsey Road.
It’s like Lucy, but not quite.
Also, the first test match of the Ashes was held in my back garden last week, also know as Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, and the link to names is that the ground is also home to Nottinghamshire County Cricket Team, who have a player called James Taylor.
It’s something I wanted to mention because I also have a cousin by the name of James Taylor, and a close friend who also answers to the name.
Small world, really. And also a reminder that not every set of parents want their child to have a completely unique name.
Finally, my goddaughter recently attended the 4th birthday party of twin girls named Edie and Eloise. Cute, huh?
