the name game

Bekka posted about the NameVoyager website today. It's really quite neat! You can track when certain names were popular. Here's my chart:
Yep, I'm a child of the 1970s, just as predicted. What really surprised me was that my grandmother's name -- Elfrieda -- actually popped up! It was popular around the turn of the century. She always hated her name and preferred to go by a nickname, and I've never met any other Elfriedas.

This may be a handy tool for soon-to-be parents (like you, Melissa!) looking for names. Just sayin'!

My Manos Mini Shawl is off the needles, ready for washing and blocking. We'll see how long I procrastinate on that one!
