Again, on Sunday night I find myself without a fully prepared Names of the Week post, the tradional Mer de Noms weekend post. So, alas, let’s put it to one side until the coming week sometime. Which reminds me, I’m hosting a french exchange this week, so watch the posting count next week fall to zilch. Early apologies.
Let’s however turn to the discussion of this post. The idea first came to spark in my mind this morning, why is it that I dislike Joseph, but adore the female version: Josephine. Then there’s Bernard and Bernadette, I love the former, dislike the latter. I’m not sure quite why this is, but it forms the basis of this post. Below are a couple of polls, which do your prefer, the male or female form?
