My name is Merindah, it is Aboriginal. But I am not Aboriginal even though I have an olive complexion and dark features. My sisters have pretty standard names in comparison. Like Denise.
My Grandparents and Parents all have traditional english names, but they came from India. So names like Arthur, Gerald, Lorraine, Constance.
My Dad's side of the family are generations of Australian's however the family originated from Scotland, so they have pretty traditional names like John and Donald.
My Husband's side of things, they are scottish and they too have traditional names.
We named our kids with somewhat unusual names, mainly because
1) I have an unusual name
2) We wanted something celtic.
3) And meant something to possibly more then one ethnicity. Such as my Ds1's name means Dark one in Celtic/Gaelic, but also means Sunshine in indian. My youngests name we liked for a very long time, and totally by coincidence it meant the opposite of his big brother's. "light one"
