By some fabulous and bizarre co-incidence, her middle name Natse is almost identical to the Japanese word, Natsu, which means summer!

En haut, le lien à son site,  Leela Gilday, K’eintah Natse Ju:

Par pure coincidence bien bizarre, son nom Natse est presque identique au mot japonais, Natsu, qui signifie l’été !
