‘Bright’ Talks Warns Of ‘Darkest’ … A Rare Headline.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access CBS coverage. Google for more.


Yes, it was ‘whistleblower’ Dr. Rick BRIGHT warning of the ‘DARKEST winter’.

Yes, a stark & scary warning.

To I, with my fondness for names, it was amusing — BRIGHT & DARKEST.

Well, you have to SMILE.


Yes, another instance of a person with a BRILLIANT name.

Bright!

Wow. How perfect.


Appears name actually comes from ‘Bright’ –> maybe ‘Bright Helmet’.

So, more to do with physical appearance than mental acuity, BUT, still neat.


Well, I have to live with ‘Guruge‘ — though I am not really complaining, even if 99.9% don’t have a clue as to what it means. SMILE.

Interesting Names: ‘Dr. Larry Brilliant’ — A Brilliant Name For A Respected Epidemiologist.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘Google News’. Just Google the name.



I had not encountered him before and that is OK.

Just happened to see him, live, on CNN. He is impressive.

His name CRACKED me up, but in a good way.

How neat. How apropos.

What must it be like growing up with that name?

What must have it been like becoming SUCCESSFUL with that name?

How many jokes did he have to endure — though none could have been painful.

It is hard to make fun of TRUE brilliance.

Love it.

Would never have been a good name for I, BUT, I sure would have liked to have had it.

But, I am NOT complaining. I kind of like ‘Guruge‘ — though 99.9% don’t have a clue as to what it means. SMILE.

National Park Service Manages To Regain Ionic Yosemite Names Like ‘Curry Village’ & ‘Ahwahnee Hotel’ — Albeit For $3.8 Million!

by Anura Guruge


Click to access the ‘LA Times’ story.


This is GREAT News.

Shame that it cost the National Park Service $3.84 Million. They are short of funds.

This should never have been allowed to happen in the first place.

I wrote about this, in reference to beloved ‘Curry Village‘, after my last visit in 2016.

Good News. The Park Service owns the names now.


Click to access my post.


It all had to do with who owned these iconic names like ‘Curry Village’. The National Park Service had not made an effort, in the past, to make sure that they owned them. That was the problem.

The prior Concession Holder to the Park held the rights to the name and only now parted with them after a total payoff coming to $12 million.

But, the National Park Service will, in essence, own the names going forward. That is GREAT news.

But, this issue is happening or going to happen in other Parks too. Concession Holders ‘trademarking’ iconic park names. The Park Service has to stop this.

Interesting Names: “Cunnett” & A Mouth To Match — Which Gets Him 7-Months In Prison.

by Anura Guruge


Click for U.K. “Daily Mail” original.

Click to ENLARGE and read.


I guess with that name the ‘c-word’ must just trip from your tongue.

I was not familiar with that name.

It is an old British name that even appears in the Domesday Book. A variant, that makes sense, is “Connett”. Both the names are believed to be from the Latin for “Constantius”. Other than that folks have no idea what the name means.

Just amused me that he, with that name, would have such a potty mouth. 7-months in jail should sure cool his jets. Not sure how that impacts his marriage let alone his honeymoon.

The dangers of drinking and flying.

A Name At Odds With Your Trade — A Metal Trader Named Stone.

by Anura Guruge


Click pictures to ENLARGE.

a white snowy New Hampshire landscape Anura Guruge Google Pixel 2


You know I have a thing about names as you would expect from one who has written a fairly successful book on names.

So, you couldn’t expect me to not notice this.

The ‘business’, viz., Vic Stone’s Metal Trading, is on one of my running routes. The name gets me each time. So, today I made a point of going back, in the car, to get this picture.

This is New Hampshire, so I am not sure whether he actually has ever thought about the irony or even whether anybody, prior to this, has even commented on it.

Occurred to I that he should have used ‘Excalibur‘ as his logo. Get it?
