I know a sesame who is a grown woman. She choose her English name as it sounded like her Chinese name without knowing what sesame meant.

I have always taken it to be her name without laughing or finding it crazy. But there is meaning behind why she selected it rather than just choosing sesame!

Rysk Legacy


Not trying to spoil your fun -  but the the name on the list was Orchid, not Orchard wink.gif

Whilst I have never known anyone called Orchid, in theory it is no stranger than other flower name, many of which are extremely popular atm - Rose, Lily, Jasmine etc

No, at least 2 people wrote on a website that they had a child called Popeye. Not the most credible list.
