Amelia is the name people gave to "Programming Perl, 3rd ed".
Fido is the name of the second camel.
Fuchsia is the first camel.

You can look at this thread on Perlmonks for an explanation:

And you can look at the last comment by MJD: "Incidentally, I once asked
Larry what the camel's name was, and he told me it was named Amelia."

You can also check for yourself and compare the second edition (Fido),
page 5 with the third edition (Amelia) page 7 (or 15).
