looking deeper

Just looking into names a bit more, following my decree.

We picked some good names there ladies...

Ethel, meaning "noble"
Winifred, from Gwenfrewi, meaning "white/fair/blessed" and "reconciliation/peace"
Olive, from the tree (unsurprisingly) so no profound meaning but plenty of good associations both with trees and olive oil
Beryl, not only my Nana's name but also a gemstone. A real jewel of a name.

Anyone else joining us?


  1. I may be Gwendolyn! I don't know if that is old ladyish, but I always think of old ladies being called Gwendolyn. (And those names always make me think of Enid Blyton!)



Sometimes I do go on...
