Bird: An Irish Nickname

At a recent after-hours event at Bellevue, a mother and daughter taught me about an Irish nickname.  As they were shopping, the mother was immediately struck by the name of a blue glassybaby: Blue Bird.  She purchased the glassybaby for her daughter, Bridget Aumell, and explained the significance to me.  Their family is Irish, and in Ireland, a common nickname for “Bridget” is “Bird.”  Now, whenever I see the lovely blue color of Blue Bird, I am reminded of the Irish mother-daughter duo.

Bird – we hope you are enjoying your Blue Bird!
