Hi Chris, I'm being lazy here, I suppose I could find out by other means, but you seem to be the kind of chap who knows about Ivory matters; where does the name originate from? Is it to do with trading? I love the name -I'm about to have a book published and my editor reckons I have the perfect name for a poet! The trading connotations, though, take the gloss off it a little!

I'd have thought that there would be a family connection, somehow - it's such an unusual name. Am a bit garlicky at the moment though, so am still concerned about the authenticity of my Ivoryness!

Best wishes Helene Ivoire
