Thinking of a baby name? This list might help...

Are you named after a wine? Because there are a heck of a lot of people who are! Actually, it’s probably the other way round – the wines are named after people – but if I was still in the baby making game, I’d definitely consider naming a daughter after one of this lot. Searching for a great Christmas present for the special lady in your life? Take a look at this list and see if you can strike it lucky!!
