Old English names making a comeback due to ‘Game of Thrones effect’ | Mail Online

They may sound more like characters in a historical drama than our next generation of children.

But Millicent, Elvina and Alfred, along with other Olde English names, are making a comeback – with many parents inspired by fantasy television series Game of Thrones.

Good lord.  It was bad enough when dazed hippies were naming their kids after Tolkein characters from Lord of the Rings.  Now this?

Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Not exactly on point, but amusing: I read an interview with Moon Unit Zappa many years ago. When asked how she felt about her name, she said her parents told it had been a toss-up between that and Motorhead, so really, she thinks she came out of it pretty well.
