  1. I love Cadeau! Trinko is fascinating. There have been a few Easter-related names in these posts, haven't there? Like Paschalina ... I guess nearly every other language has more Easter-names than English.

  2. Ara and Mariami are fab. I also love Mineka, with the possible nn of Minnie.

  3. Trinko is a quirky little find, it rather reminds me of the English word: trinket.
