Congratulations to my book club friends, Dan and Alice! Their little gal was born this morning and named Juniper Daisy, which made me laugh (in a good way). Their other daughter got her name from a railway station her parents passed every day on their commute. They didn’t want to call their daughter Anerley, because that would be pretty obvious, so they chose Anneli as a close variation.
Poor Juniper here looks like she might be related to the root baby in Pan’s Labyrinth, but luckily her parents are the kind of people who would find that funny.
