    On the pronunciation perhaps this will help. Or not considering the thick accent

    I guess Australia has multiple unofficial National Anthems, because I thought that "The Land Down Under" by "Men At Work" was also considered to be the unofficial Anthem of Australia.
    I'm from Europe so perhaps I don't understand.:oops:

    This is easy. Just listen to me, because I know how to name you. ;)

    If you're on the short side and wear glasses and are a little thin choose 'Martha'.

    If you've got silken black hair and beautiful eyes choose 'Abbey'.

    If you have no soul choose 'Ginger'.

    If you are guilty of murder choose "Mrs. Peacock in the Kitchen with the Pipe Wrench." (from Clue)

    If you have a LOT of money choose 'Gaga'.

    If you admire office workers choose either 'Stephanie', 'Jennifer' or 'Mary-Lou'.

    If you have a tattoo that says "Barbara" choose "Barbara"

    If you have a dog choose "Betty"

    If you can hold your breath for more than two minutes at a time while wearing high heels choose "Magdalena"

    If you can knit choose "Joyce"

    Does that answer your question?

    Do you mean rhyme as in a children's song or rhyme as in how the name sounds? Cuz I liked the way the name sounded. Its fun to say. So far its my favorite.

    Try to avoid names that make up funny rhyming schemes, because you can believe you will be rhymed and probably won't like it. Pick names that nothing rhymes with except things you like. Don't pick 'Mary' because it rhymes with 'Hairy' and 'Fairy' and 'Dairy' etc.
