Thread Name: What's in a (Mudcat) name
Subject: RE: BS: What's in a name
Two archaeological terms: a type of Iron Age brooch (a bit like a safety pin) and a digging implement. The two names together I orginally envisaged as a pince-nez wearing blue-stocking academic type obsessed with touring ruins, but actually she turned out just like me (i.e. the opposite, though I don't mind touring ruins at all).
