I'm using Chrome on XP. I find that the display is a bit jumpy, it definitely isn't cycling through the displays smoothly, but even if it doesn't display the letters when I keep typing in the name, they still register, if that makes sense. I then have to wait for the animation to catch up with me as it moves through each letter. It works fine, although it was faster for me before the change.
goldenpig--I wouldn't worry about the urban dictionary citation of H0l0kai, it's a user-contributed site that doesn't necessarily bear any resemblance to slang that is regularly used. While I'm not up-to-date on my Hawaiian slang, a search of other, more common names on the urban dictionary site should reassure you as to the validity of their definitions. In fact, this is a facebook meme that seems to be going around right now--search your name on urban dictionary and post the result, and people are posting the most outlandish, silliest results they could find--things that are quite obviously not a genuine widespread connotation for the names being looked up.
My sibset would be Kenora and Kenora, unfortunately, so that hardly works. I suppose I could use Ken and Nora if I was really hard pressed...
As far as Mhairi goes (in Scottish Gaelic), it's another case form of Mairi (Mary). Essentially, a person with the name Mairi would be referred to as Mairi, but addressed directly as Mhairi, with the additional 'h' changing the pronunciation to a 'v' sound. Mhairi is used as a name on it's own, however. The Gaelic for James, Seumas (Shay-muss), is the same. The vocative case form is Sheumais, pronounced 'Hamish'. Hamish is also used as a name independently of Seumas. Also, orthographically speaking, the 'a' in Mairi/Mhairi has a down-sloping accent mark over it (forget what that's called).
Disclaimer: I don't speak Scottish Gaelic, have just studied it a bit, so if there is someone present who does, please correct me if the above is incorrect
Funny you mention that, Linne@ is another name that I have on the list for a potential daughter...I think it's really lovely. What did you use as a mn?
RobynT- I had a Linden epiphany a couple nights ago, myself. I constructed it on my own, out of nowhere, realised it was botanical shortly thereafter, and was then surprised to find it was an actual name. As my mother's name is Linda, it's now been put down on the list of possibles for a future daughter. I was using it as a first name: Linden Marie, (Marie being a choice for honouring my grandmother and her 4 sisters, all of whom have names beginning Mar-) or a TBD middle name based on a relative on a husband's side. I love Ava Linden, though. Great minds and all...
