I've always found this really interesting. I had a lot of friends at camp named Ali/Allie or some other spelling. Their names ranged from Alison/Allison to Alexandra to Alaina to Alyssa. While all of those are fairly popular on their own, the combination made Allie easily the most common name. I once had a cabin of 15 girls with 4 Allies (not to mention 2 Callies, who were both Carolyns).

In Response to American Accent Quiz

I also got Boston for the first and I got Neutral for the second. As another New Yorker who certainly doesn't have the stereotypical Brooklyn, etc. accent, I think it's interesting that we both were pegged with Boston accents. I also disliked the "horrible" question; my pronunciation of the "o" is not consistent, sometimes it's an "o," sometimes more of an "a." The same goes for "forest," "orange," and "Florida."

I just started college a few weeks ago (I feel old. I was still in middle school when I started reading BNW!) so this is quite relevant. I actually know multiple college-aged Avas, but everything else falls right in with my experience. Here are some other interesting names I've heard:

Th0r (2, both are middle names, but are what they go by)

R3x (also a middle name, but what people call him)


R3illy (girl, I've never seen this spelling as a given name)

B@iley (this seems sort of young for an 18 y/o girl)

M@ttison (boy, another interesting spelling)

Gus (I don't know if it's a nickname, but I've never met a Gus my age)


T0rii (this is her given name)

N0la (named after New Orleans)

S3quoia (boy)

I love the Star Trek and Farscape names!


For Y, Fry's father and older brother on Futurama are both named Yancy.

I can't think of anything for U either...

For I, there's an Isabella on Phineas and Ferb, but you already used Ferb.

In Response to SCHOOL Names

I always forget that the Queensboro Bridge is the 59th Street Bridge, but I love the song.

I'm pretty sure the first time I'd ever heard about Idlewild Airport was in the Twilight Zone episode "The Odyssey of Flight 33," where Flight 33 begins travelling into the past; my dad had to explain that it was JFK. I agree that it's a much cooler name and definitely better than Anderson!

How do you feel about the Queensboro Bridge becoming the Ed Koch Bridge? I feel like it's especially weird because he's alive. As far as schools go, there are some with acronyms as well as the numbered and people-named schools.

In Response to The "New Virtues"

I met a (female) Favour recently. I'm a little surprised that the British spelling is more common and if I see her again, I might ask her about her name.


I feel like virtue names are a lot to live up to. Beauty? Victory? And many are just leaving the poor kids open to teasing (Purity, Chastity, Beauty again).

As someone in the Northeast US, I think the next name practically chose itself:
