8. My sister delivers babies for a living so she hears some classic baby names – My favourite was Abcde said Abbsedeesee. Gold. – Jane

9. My high school bestie is called Faen (pronounced Fawn!), like a baby deer. I think it’s the prettiest, quirkiest name and suits her crazy personality so well. Plus she’s pint-sized and loveable – just like a baby deer. However when she calls restaurants to make reservations she’s books under Lil. She’s probably gotten about 15 years of her life back in time saved. – Bella

11. I knew a guy called Jet and always thought that was such a cool name – obviously you have to be cool to pull it off! – Paul

12. My friend’ sniece is called Nevaeh, as in, ‘Heaven’ backwards. I died. – Lorna
