Hat tip to faithful reader Jane for this one.
Have you heard? Though not officially announced, internet rumor has it that Lily Allen and Sam Cooper’s new baby is named Ethel. Ethel Mary Cooper to be exact, per this tweet from a friend.
I think it’s lovely! While Ethel is not necessarily an oldie I would have predicted to make a comeback quite so soon, it does have soft sounds of other names popular today, like Lily and Isabel. Most people will still put her in the same category as Beulah and Irma, though it wasn’t so very long ago that Mabel and Hazel were unthinkable.
What do you think?
