I like the idea of a colour name - maybe not Blue (EB side bar article) but:
OliveTealeViolet
What else?

I came close to naming Ds2 Elijah Blue, five years ago

I was nicking it from Cher - that is the name of her boy.

Just liked the way it sounds.

Not many other colour names rock my boat.

Swoon wub.gif Emerald is one of my fantasy names.

Didn't notice anyone suggesting Jett (might have missed it, sorry)

Also, I go a bit loopy for Derwent colours.
Would have loved to have a "Rose Madder Lake" or Vermillion... Carmine ...Umber...

Or some strong masculine names like Zinc, Titanium, Slate, Argent....

Just sayin wink.gif

Years ago i taught a girl named Skye Blue. Blue was the family name. The staffroom consensus was that she would matty young to change her name.

Gudrun I might save that list!

Emerald was my top pick but I had a boy instead.

Edited to add: Jillian, when do you find out if it's a little Emerald? original.gif I'd love to know your boy's name.
