MISTRESS OF NAMES


« on: November 13, 2016, 06:29:52 pm »

Some clever person designed an interactive program based on the U.S. Social Security Administration's annual names popularity index.  

"The popularity of your name is likely far different today than it was the year you were born. Maybe you’re one of those men born in 1983 and named Michael, the most popular name of the year. Today, if you were given the most popular boy’s name, you’d be named Noah. The following interactive shows you which name had the same popularity in the past year and every decade since 1890 as yours did the year you were born, using newly released baby name data for 2015."

By typing in your first name, the year of your birth, and your gender, you can discover what your name could have been had you been born in other decades.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

My 1990s name: Melvin.  Says it all about the 90s, really.

However, my 1890s name is a quite-acceptable Archibald.  I'd been thinking the Colonel needed a middle name; I think maybe I've found one.  Thank you, name-mistress.

Interesting.
My today name would be Lily - my grandmother born mid 1880's was Lilian.  My 1890 name is Jessie; I had a great aunt, also born mid 1880's, who was called Jessie.
 Coincidence or ...... something more?

Having for ever been called by my sisters name [ as one does] this damned site does the same.   Or at least derivation of my sisters name.  Embarrassed

 Elliana  is the today name and Nelle  is the 1890 equivalent

My name is so unusual that it is far down the list and every option is peculiar.

"Cuba" is not too bad, although "Luddie" is rather odd.

Ironically, my name today would be a perfectly acceptable Victorian one.

As long as it's not short for Luddite.  We don't want any of that sort here!

Heh; my 1890s name would have been my actual middle name.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

According to the generator, my 1890's name would be "Stanley." As a steamer, I find this most appropriate.
