Rainbird has to be one of the most wonderful middle names I’ve ever come across – truly inspired!

The names Josephine and Estella sound lovely for sisters
Yes I thought it sounded classic and even literary. 🙂
My sisters name is Bridget and her nickname was always Bridie so it is odd to see it as a full name.
For the girls I like Annabelle Cecilia and Molly Claire.
For the boys Hugo Harry Leigh and James Reginald Barclay are my favorites.
In 2010 Bridie was a Top 100 name here!
Wow. How does Bridget rank? I will have to tell my sister.
Bridget is #232, and rising in NSW.
I am completely surprised by that. My sister only knows one other Bridget.
I think at Nameberry there is an article on a novel one of them has written, and she talks about how in North America, Irish immigrants felt pressured to suppress their own names, and not to give their children Irish names, as they had connotations of being lower-class, dirty and ignorant. That just didn’t happen here, and Irish names have always been common and popular (although often quite dated compared to names actually used in Ireland).
Bridie is the name of actress Bridie Carter (McLeods Daughters i think she starred in). I know one Bridget but I live in a small town in WA
Ooh, Anne Rainbird is nice. Love those unexpected middles.
I quite liked Ruby-Lee January too. 🙂

That use of Rainbird as an unexpected middle name for Anne is rather nice.
I thought it was lovely, especially as it is rainbird season during January and we’ve been hearing lots of them. 🙂
