I have heard of grown women who are called Bree

n America, I think. R suggests an alternative source for the name might be from C S Lewis (The Horse and His Boy) but I imagine that your parents' friends specifically said they were naming her after a bit of Tolkien?

Dickon Edwards is indeed named after the boy in the Secret Garden so you are right to have him come to mind... Dickon's rather pleased with the association I believe.

"Aphra" has already been misspelled as "Athra" a couple of times, which we were surprised by! Ah well.

Re: I have heard of grown women who are called Bree

Ah, it could be from C S Lewis -- I don't know (second-hand anecdotes eh) whether they said it was Tolkien or whether that was just my mum's inference.

I suspect there isn't a name under the sun that can't be misspelled somehow. :-/ I have certainly had some very weird spellings of my name & I didn't think that was a particularly weird or difficult one!
