This answers one of my questions, sadly not as I should have wished it to be answered. I should have liked to be able to update Daily Notes on my Mac. This will not be possible. LJ
I purchased a copy of “Remarkable Names of Real People” from Blackwell’s, whilst in my first year at Christ Church, a little over forty years ago now. I was therefore delighted to chance upon this article in the Washington Post, which explains its genesis. Who could not take pleasure in the giddying abundance of improbable names? Life is a constant source of paronomasia and nomenclatural delight.
