User comments for Narelle (Famous Bearer Only)

My grandmother, world famous Australian soprano Marie Narelle, took the name as a talisman in 1898 when she began her career, dropping her married name of Callaghan. She "stole" the name, if you will, from Queen Narelle of the Moruya tribe of Aborigines who was legendary in those days. My understanding is that it means "woman from the sea". Indeed Moruya is a coastal area in southern New South Wales.

Narelle lost favour in the late 60's because of the Naked Vicar Show. Narelle was a rather dumb red head in mini shirt and platform shoes whose best friend was Cyril. The phrase "you're not wrong there Narelle" came from that show.
