Amberly

It just seems kind of weird looking to me.

sounds like a nursing home to me

"Last night I dreamt I went to Amberley again"

Ha! That's exactly what went through my mind!

It says something when you put a name into behindthename and the closest two they can get are Welsh.

Cadogan
Cadwgan

And they're technically the same name.

The Irish and the Welsh, glorious names to hear, kinda scary to read.

"Last night I dreamt I went to Amberley again"

Not exact, but close enough to be humorous:

I am going to write a book called Bambersley. My pen name will be Bambi Batwell.

One of the things I love about eHell is that literary and geek references never miss :)

Tuuli.

I'm guessing they got it from their trips abroad, but it's very unusual here. We also have no idea how to pronounce it (it could be uu or oe depending).

Tuuli is a pretty common Finnish female name that means wind, for English speakers I would say that the prononciation is something like too-ly, so probably uu in your case.

Does she have a twin named Pemberley? (Yes, I know I'm mixing authors  :))

Ah! Now that's interesting. I kinda like it, I just hadn't heard of it before.

This made my local tv news, but I can't find a link.  I live in the US where we don't pay a lot of attention to the British royal family.   

A couple in Western Iowa has 3 children.  Will and Kate are preschool age, born before Prince William got engaged to Kate Middleton.  The couple's third child is about a year old.  He is named George.  All perfectly normal names but an eye-catching coincidence.

Leeam Mathue (first and middle name).  Now I happen to love both these names, especially Liam, which is my favorite boy name, but really?  What is wrong with Liam Matthew?

My old school used to be a combination of juniors and seniors (elementary and secondary for the US version I think?) - they were different buildings but on the same grounds and under the same name.

I used to help some of the junior kids with their reading once a week, and to get to the right classroom, I had to go through a hallway with coatpegs on one side, one for each child. One name ALWAYS caught my eye as I passed...

"Atlantis"...

I hope his last name isn't some variation of 'City'. Can you picture the newspaper article? "The lost City, Atlantis, was last seen-"
