  1. Yeah, some of these would be really difficult to live with I think.

    I could see Caress as a variant of Carys.

    Usage of Caress spiked in 1986, the year a character named Caress was introduced on Dynasty (also a baby name!). So that’s probably the main influence here.

    The brand name Caress (those scented body washes — “Before you dress, Caress”) may have been an influence as well.
