Introduction
Hi, I'm Brooke. If you read my blog Baby Name Pondering, you may also know me as Blue Juniper. I love "bad" reality TV, horror movies (especially Zombie movies), sci-fi and fantasy, romance, puzzles (jigsaws, sudoku, crosswords - you name it) and unusual names :) When I have some spare time I also like to do a bit of painting. I love writing my blog, and you can also see occasionally as a guest blogger on Nameberry!  Feel free to drop me a line if you see a name you think is rare and wonderful and you might see it on my blog :)
