::hobbles up, all Igor-like::  You rang?

But seriously, yeah.  I was lucky enough to have a very simple naming
quandry...  Anything that I chose, I was going to get called Kitty. :)  But
for anyone looking at a name, I strongly suggest the Academy of St. Gabriel,
and for anyone doing Scottish, you /have/ to read Scottish Names 101 by
Effric neyn Kenyeoch.  You just do. <onomastic rant> 95% of the horrible
Scottish names in the Society could be prevented if the people involved read
that article and took it to heart.
