Names: My newspaper column -- now featuring an almond tree and The Office

Recommended Posts

Here is the link to today's column. I am really miffed at the headline writer, because the whole point of the column is that I think it's more accurate to say Jackson and Sophia are "on top" than Liam and Emma:

My father was named Noach. (The c is silent) Until just in the last few years I could count on the thumbs of one hand any other Noahs I had ever heard of. Noah Beery is the only one. Now I hear the name everywhere. My dad would be happy. He always wondered what his mother was thinking naming him Noach.

Apparently I am unable to read this anymore because of GDPR

I had to Google GDPR to know what you were referring to, and I still don't know why it affects this since what I read talked about its application to banking and financial sites, not newspapers.

But if you send me your email address through a personal message I will send you a copy of what I wrote.

I suspect I have an idea what's going on. GDPR places restrictions on transferring personal data outside of the EU, and cookies do just that. It's easy enough to comply (this website does it), but it might be that the Omaha W-H has decided it's not worth the bother for the small amount of EEA traffic it gets.

Here's the link to today's column. Sorry I did not have room to mention more famous real men named Owen, such as author Owen Wister.

As La Albearceleste surmised, the Omaha World-Herald has decided it's not worth it to comply with EU rules for now. Anyone who is blocked from the World-Herald site who wants to read my columns can send me their email address in a personal message and I will be happy to send them a copy of what I originally wrote.

Here's the link to today's column, about one of the more common male names I hadn't written about yet:

I'm only interested about what name is in question? Is it Roman?

That column is on the name "Mark."

Here's the link to today's column. Phyllis was one of the first classical Greek names adopted into modern English and was even among the top 50 names for English girls born in the 1600s.
