Names  
I think I've been living with the One World in my head for too long. Something sproinged in my brain when I needed a plain old ordinary name.

You forgot Yvonne.

You're right. Y did I forget Yvonne, or Yves, or such?

I knew a writer that looked thorough this site and hit refresh for a different name is it didn't fit right:

I meant to say, "if it didn't fit right."

I've got three random name generators. It just took a minute to readjust my thinking to "normal name" mode.

That's what telephone books are for. Just stick a large hatpin through a bunch of pages, and look at the ones that have holes in them or next to them. Sometimes you have to do it twice, especially if you end up with something like Yancy Pudlinski.

That would be hard to do for many people. I haven't seen an actual telephone book in 15 years.

Your phone company's broken. Ours delivers a phone book annually.

On the subject of names, my spell checker has informed me that Arno is a perfectly good real word, and BehindTheName says it's Dutch and German for Arnold. I thought it might be Finnish as well, in fact I'm pretty sure it is: I think one of Dad's cousins was an Arno but there's probably supposed to be an accent of some sort that Ellis Island mislaid, so maybe the author brain just needs a reminder that Oners can so have real names! Sometimes.

Not broken exactly. Ever since I moved into my current location, I haven't told the phone company that I exist. Cell phone only.

Before that I was living in my parent's basement (hey, cheap rent) and they'd told the phone company to stop sending them. The online white pages was just better and for Yellow Pages we've had Google Maps.
