Amaia Montero

One of Phyllis’s old uni friends lives in Spain, and when he heard we had named our daughter Amaia, he said that of course Amaia was now a common name in Spain because of the singer, but he hadn’t realised she was now also famous in the UK.

The truth is, of course, that we had never heard about the singer before, but she’s readily available on YouTube and Amazon:

It’s funny – she seems to have studied chemistry at Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea, which is where I learnt Basque, and she’s from the town Irun, which was also where my teacher (Nekane) lived. It’s a small world.
