The Names Rock
One duty i had as gr 1 teacher was to dole out English names to all the kids who needed one.
The names are ideally: monosyllabic, easy to spell, using different initial letter, and semi-recognizable as a name. My criteria, not the admin's.
So (of course) i dug up bunch of musician names.
Mick (jagger) though he started calling himself Mickey by day 3
Um, i think there's more but i can't remember any rt now.
Oh, and sorry if i sound like a sexist bastard, but the fact is that most women in the Great Musicians website i looked at had names which i thought were dull or inappropriate or too complicated. Maybe someone could write a women's studies thesis about this phenomenon.
