A Name At Odds With Your Trade — A Metal Trader Named Stone.

You know I have a thing about names as you would expect from one who has written a fairly successful book on names.

So, you couldn’t expect me to not notice this.

The ‘business’, viz., Vic Stone’s Metal Trading, is on one of my running routes. The name gets me each time. So, today I made a point of going back, in the car, to get this picture.

This is New Hampshire, so I am not sure whether he actually has ever thought about the irony or even whether anybody, prior to this, has even commented on it.

Occurred to I that he should have used ‘Excalibur‘ as his logo. Get it?

People With Interesting Names: “Erica Houskeeper” of “HappyVermont.com”

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. An e-mail from “Revels North”.


Click to access her Website “HappyVermont.com”.


I first saw it, in a flash, on an e-mail I got from “Revels North” (first image above). I read it, subconsciously, with the ‘e’ inserted and thought “Wow, what an interesting name“.

I saved the e-mail because I wanted to research the name. When I went back I discovered that there was NO ‘e’ BUT it sure looks and sounds like it did. I am not sure how they pronounce it.

I, of course, Googled it. Much to my surprise and chagrin I couldn’t find what it means or where it came from — though I will confess I did not spend much time.

I, however, discovered that Erica is not alone and it could be a married name. There is an actor with that name — on IMDb.com.

I think it is German but I could be wrong. German for that duty is haushälterin.

I am going to send her this link and ask her whether she can help me with her name. I think it is neat. I like it.

People With Interesting Names: A Weatherman Named “Ken Weathers”.

by Anura Guruge


Click here for the U.K. “Daily Mail” original.



Made my day when I saw in the U.K. “Daily Mail” this morning — the “Daily Mail” (which I have read most of my life) being the first thing I read every morning, while still lying in bed.

Wonder whether his name ‘Weathers’ influenced his desire to become a ‘weatherman’? Wonder if many comment about it … at all?

But now … it gets more ‘amusing’.

Who would have thought. A castrated ram! Poor Mr. Weathers. Wonder if he knows that?

People With Interesting Names: Would YOU Handover Your Life Savings To A “Rude”?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and admire here. From “marketwatch.com”. Search ‘rude’.

Cracked me up when I read the story on “marketwatch.com“. 

You have to have both magical chutzpah & huge kahunas to be able to run a ponzi scheme with a name “Rude”. I am in awe. Wow.

It gets better. The article says he had excellent ‘soft skills’ and was non-threatening. I guess he was NEVER rude.

I had never heard of ‘it’ as a name.

Nearly 9,000 folks in the U.S. Wow.

Per the last U.S. census we are supposed to have 151,671 last names in the U.S.

Click to ENLARGE. AGAIN from: mynamestats.com.

So, 4,553 in the ranking is kind of down there — BUT way more than I would have suspected.

Hhhmmmmm!

I hope that they will not be too rude to him when he is prison.

NWEA, The K-12 Student Assessment Company Used By New Hampshire Schools, CANNOT Handle Non-English Names!

Their Website.



This is crazy. We have put up with this for 10-years!

It isn’t as if we have a really, really strange name. We are just talking “Gurugé“.

“é” — as used in French and Spanish.

Last time I looked we do have folks with French and Spanish names in the U.S.

This is a bloody travesty.

Got the LATEST testing results, with the two ‘question marks’ today. I had enough.

I contacted the Principal and Assistant Principal — who happens to be on French descent, with a name LaFreniere.
