Go to Trendleblog and you'll find the announcement about the new Rector of Holy Trinity and Trendlewood, Nailsea, being made public at church services today. Interesting name.
I once worked with someone called Hassall who didn't like the word hassle being used as a simile for difficulty. I currently work with someone called Jolly who doesn't apparently have any objections to her name continuing its use as an adjective.
I have heard my new colleague describe something using his lower-cased name. I wonder.
I spent a lot of my early childhood being silly Tilley, much of my teenage years being Willy (adolescent boys eh?) but feel most at home as St - that's the real me. I think.
Names. Burden or opportunity? And who are you?
