I got an Elizabeth Samantha back in the early 90's. Her birthday was August 1 (and why do I remember that?). I can't believe they are still around.

My DD got a gorgeous CPK wearing a fairy dress and her name is Pax Sailor.
No idea what the name of mine was when I was little!

Remember you could officially change their names by lodging papers? Mine when I was 6 was Alethea Olina, but my older sister made me change it to Caroline Jane which I never really liked. My little sister had Omar Moses, and she changed it to Bunson Fred.

Mine as a kid in the 80's was Milly Jane. The CPK we got from the US for DD for this Xmas was originally named Harriet Jessica, but we chose to rename it and give it her date of birth as well. It is now Ruby Jane (cause the doll and DD both have red hair). I would have loved to name a daughter of my own Ruby, especially if she had red hair like DD but DH hates it. So I am living vicariously through the CPK
