You, actually.

Back in 2008 I feared that I’d never keep writing if I had to come up with the names myself.  Happily, your suggestions have taken this blog into wild and weird directions, onomastically speaking.  Thanks to you I’ve written about names I loved from the second I read the suggestion, names I fretted I’d find nothing to love about, and names that I just plain hadn’t heard of until your email landed in my inbox.

All that said, there are quite a few requests these days, and it can be a bit overwhelming.

Right now I’m focused on updating older posts. Some of these date back to 2008, so there’s a lot of work to be done!

If you’d like to request an update to an older post, please do!

And if you’d like to request something that I haven’t covered? Feel free to suggest it, and I’ll see if I can squeeze it in!
