Weekend Post: So Lucky

Moldova's 2011 Eurovisoin Entry - So Lucky byZdob&Zdub, with accompanying trumpet playing fairy on unicycle.

Greetings friends, my Saturday evening was filled with the joy that is Eurovision, did my fellow continent dwellers enjoy it? I voted for Moldova, since it was in the true spirit of Eurovision, and it appears my fellow Brits agreed, since we awarded them 8 points, at which point our commentator, Graham Norton, told us off for not taking it seriously…and then we gave our 12 to Jedward of Ireland. As for the winners, twas’ Azerbaijan – a country in Asia.

But let’s get onto the point ofour post. The title of the Moldova song was So Lucky, and that got me thinking, what are some names which mean lucky?

  1. Moldova should have got some special Eurovision award … I think they should start handing out prizes for Most Kooky, Most Attractive Performer, Most Filled with Angst, Most Politically Correct etc etc.

    You could mix all these names to make a super lucky name combination – like Felix Seven Ebisu or Dalia Clover Jurojin.

    PS How does Zelda mean lucky?
