Thread Name: BS: British vs. American names
Subject: RE: BS: British vs. American names
Well, let's see.... I know folks with many of these names. There's Colin Healey who is a fine fiddle player over here, the tenor in my gospel quartet is named Derek, I also know folks named Maurice, Trevor, and Noel(Paul of Peter, Paul, and Mary is actually Noel Stookey as most folks know. And then, there's Mavis Staples, and I know a woman over here named Zoe.

Then, there are all the other names that certainly didn't originate here like Gunnar, Romer, Zolton, a;; of whom are people I've known.

What are "American" names? Got me there. Maybe Marilyn? or Lance?
