Wasn't the Swallows' surname Walker? And the Amazons' was Blackett or something similar.

I don't remember Jo having a surname, but her father was Simmy, so possibly Simpson or Symmonds or some such.

Years back, when Princess Diana had produced a William and a Henry (thereafter called Harry, though he could also be Ginger), I used to hope she would have a girl and name her Violet Elizabeth.

As far as I remember, William was William Brown. 'Just' was part of the (first?) book title. I'm not sure if Henry, Ginger and Douglas had surnames, though Violet Elizabeth had two names AND a surname.

Pfr: "My mrs hasn't got a middle name.. [is that a Welsh culture thing...????]"

Life gets complicasted pfr.

I’m English and neither me or my 3 brothers have middle names. Neither parent has one either but I do know mum’s mum had the forenames Daisy Nellie Freshwater...


I lived some of my childhood (and a longer later spell) in N Wales and I am not aware of any of the few (all Welsh first language) in the village we'd mplay with having middle names except for one who’s middle name was more likely part of a surname (other part being Jones). But there is something I was able to work out recently, ie, referred to person was a brother of one of “our” group by mention of a middle name and knowing the father’s name and coupling with age...

One of the first jobs I had was as a forecourt attendant/car cleaner in a garage and I can assure you that both of those were “very Welsh” , had middle names, and go as far as to say that one of those was known by his middle name.

When I worked in a school in the East End in the glory days of ILEA and Red Ken, we got a new headmaster who'd clearly been used to his rather formal posh Edinburgh school's ways. He decided to call us all by surnames only. One day he was hailing my mate Terry Hunter from behind in the corridor: "A word with you please, Hunter!" Tel stopped momentarily in his tracks but didn't turn round, then proceeded purposefully on his way. "Er, Mr Hunter...!" did the trick for the head. That cured him of that little habit!

In that case, Eliza, I stand corrected.
When I was a child I only had 'Five Fall Into Adventure' - I loved it and read it over and over again. I asked my mother if I could have more Famous Five books for birthdays or Christmas (we didn't live anywhere near a book shop for me to buy one myself). She gave me a very tame, soppy Enid Blyton book about children who went on nature walks. She said she had looked at the Famous Five books but thought they were too boyish! Much as I loved her, she did spend years trying to turn me into the kind of person I never was and was never going to be.

In the Famous Five, George has the surname of Kirrin. And the others' is Barnard (mentioned in 'Five Get Into A Fix')
I confess to owning the whole blooming series and reading it often. It's quite comforting, reminds me of an age long past!

At grammar school we were only referred to by our surnames..

I've got a fairly common old English surname,
but at the time I was the only one in our year,
and maybe the entire school...

My mrs hasn't got a middle name.. [is that a Welsh culture thing...????]

Can imagine how far parents would get these days just putting one name,
even only the surname,
on a birth certificate...

Speaking of Jerome K. Jerome, I don't remember any other names being given in his books for George, Harris or Montmorency (the dog), though I could be wrong.

And what about Enid Blyton's characters, Julian, Dick, George, Anne, Timmy (the dog); and then there's Noddy (but presumably we can't count Big Ears ...).

He was AUDLEY... but if he ordered something over the phone, mail and parcels would arrived addresses to Audrey, Aubrey... and even Oddley.

He gave up and mostly used his initials.. A.W.

Mr Red's 12 again - how many are actually well known (and do some of them actually have the same first name so need a second name or father or brothers name to distinguish them, or are known by a double first name, or even different first names in different accounts)?
Go on, how many without looking them up? I used to be able to name 12 but only by thinking hard. Now in my atheist day I'm sure of 7 - ah yes 3 of the ones I was doubtful about were right (and the other was a replacement for Mr R's 11). And there were 2 with the same first name.

Reindeer Rudolph is associated with a Christian festival, so does that make it a 'Christian' name?
And regarding the question, earlier about whether Dylan the rabbit's name was a Christian name, aren't rabbits related to Easter bunnies - and so also (loosely) associated with a Christian festival?
