    So I'm coming to you all for help.

    The name I have at the top of the list for Koolie girl is Didgie, short for Didgeridoo. It's fun to say, makes me smile and sticks with the Aussie tradition of throwing out half a word and adding the sound EEE at the the end. So I like it a lot. But I want to see if any of you guys can come up with some alternatives!

    Ideally I would love it to have to do with Australia in some way but it's not a necessity if a different perfect name falls into my lap. I don't want a human name for this girl. I also thought about something that goes with Traveler but came up with nothing.

    And yeah, that's it! Help please!

    I have nothing to add to this thread other than I love Didgie/Didgeridoo. But that's probably because I was telling my mom the other night how awesome that exact name would be for a Koolie. Too funny! It's a silly name, but it makes me laugh and so I love it.

    Quest or Venture would go sort of with Traveler. Journey too. But Didgie is definitely my favourite!

    I think it is Autumn in Australia at the moment, what about Autumn? I thought of that before when I thought you were getting a red, but its still a nice name. Or Spring/Summer, depending when she lands in the Northern Hemisphere. :p
