    No, they'll all do the rounds again. Think of all the Noahs, Joshuas etc now.

    That made me think....I've never "known" (think Biblical) a woman with one of those three names!

    Imagine a foursome with 3 ladies named Edna, Mavis and Doris! Fearsome :shock:

    Had somebody scratch Paula & Miriam on door to the block of flats where I live. didn't think Miriams did this sort of thing?

    In Hong Kong at lot of these 'Old' names are still in use, as well a load of others, I worked with a "Twinkle" and a "Starr" as well as a "Silve" who was a rabid Elvis fan (think about it)

    Loads of Winstons. Ernests, Gerards, Dorians, etc

    I thought Edith was for 60 year olds until Edith Bowman came along.
    I'd rather walk than use Shimano
