Name update

Posted by Jäger on 2015-02-14 17:07:07

World-readable

This week Calvin decided he would be ok with the name Julian, and suggested the middle name Elliot (or perhaps spelled with the last letter repeated, Elliott). The name does not appear to have any special significance to Calvin, or if it does, he's not telling us. We are not quite certain about the spelling; the Social Security baby names list suggests that both spellings are equivalently popular (and both are far more popular than Eliot). Now that I'm writing this all down I think I have a slight preference for "Elliot" but I should be easily persuadable any way.

A standard question in the Commune, "Study well?", has absolutely
nothing to do with how well one learned the designated material,
but rather to the individual's interactions with the one with whom
he is studying.
