The Name Game

Today, while Allison and I were out and about, we stopped into Starbucks for a beverage. Allison ordered her drink and the Barista asked her name. She replied "Allison."
Now, I have to ask you, is this a unique name? Is this a name that is out of the ordinary? Some name you have never heard before? Granted, I have seen various spelling of the name: Alison or Alyson or even Allyson...Do you know what was written on her cup when her beverage was ready?
ALICE IN...as if it were two words even!
I should not be surprised. Though I don't frequent Starbucks, a few of the times I have been there I have received my beverage with
JULY
written on it...yeah.
Julie is one of those unique names too...
