Today’s Washington Post includes an interview with a New York interior designer by the name of Celerie Kemble (b. 1973).
How did she get that name? Here’s the story she gave the Post:
Her mother, while pregnant in Upstate New York, was chatting with some older women about baby names, and they discouraged her from choosing anything offbeat. After spying them drinking bloody marys with celery stalks, Kemble’s mother knew what she was going to name her baby.
I think I would have gone with Mary from Bloody Mary, not Celerie from celery stalk…but hey, that’s just me.
What do you think of the name Celerie?
