NOTY is back! Here are the contenders for 2011.
My picks and my husband’s picks for final four are…
Shalom Dreampeace Compost
Taco B. M. Monster
One of the contenders, Joe Shortsleeve, is well-known Boston news reporter. He always wears long-sleeved shirts on TV, in case you were wondering.
Which names do you think will be the last four standing?
*Jihad Larry has been replaced with (rather weak contender) Cassanova McKinzy, so I’m going with Ebenezer Noonoo now.
I wrote a letter to a friend not long ago, and the act of writing something longhand (which I rarely do anymore) made me wonder: which baby names can be written in cursive without lifting the pen from the page?
Turns out that many names can be written this way–so long as they don’t contain letters that need crossing/dotting (t, i, x, j) and don’t start with a tricky capital (such as W, which doesn’t connect to the letters that follow, or H, which itself requires more than one pen-stroke to be formed correctly).
Here are some examples of names that can be written in script with one continuous line of ink.
- 3 letters: Ava, Moe, Ned, Rob, Ula
- 4 letters: Cleo, Elmo, Jada, Rhys, Zane
- 5 letters: Carla, Jesse, Nancy, Ryder, Yosef
- 6 letters: Edward, Jazmyn, Morgan, Nelson, Ursula
- 7 letters: Charles, Eleanor, Jeffrey, Malcolm, Rebecca
- 8 letters: Alphonso, Emmanuel, Mercedes, Mohammad, Randolph
- 9 letters: Cleveland, Esperanza, Jefferson, Magdalena, Rosabelle
- 10 letters: Alessandra, Alessandro, Clarabella, Clarabelle, Jacquelynn
