What's in a name?

To continue the umbrella theme this month we thought we'd look at the umbrella meaning and umbrella names!

Umbrella meaning:

'an object with a round folding frame of long, straight pieces of metal covered with material, that you use to protect yourself from the rain or from hot sun'

We've found some very random names that we didn't know existed:

  • Brolly

  • Parasol

  • Gamp

  • Bumbershoot

  • Sunshade

  • Parapluie

  • Rainshade

Can you add to the list? We'd be so interested to know - please comment below.

Why are we obsessed with umbrellas..? Stay tuned.
