    we have two Aaron's on this forum and I think that is such a lovely name for a man. If we were to have another son that would be my choice but that isn't likely to happen.

    I do really love the avatar. I must admit I don't get the usertitle though. Nymphadora would be a cool thing to be called. Must be in a movie I didn't see/book I didn't read.

    One of the Harry Potter books... I forget which. She prefered to go by her last name only, which was Tonks.

    She's a character I wasn't familiar with until that challenge so it must have been one of the later movies, or else I didn't pay close enough attention to the ones I saw, which is a possibility. I'm letting Thing 1 and her dad bond over HP and butting out for their sake. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Actually, Arun is a Sanskrit name and thus bears no particular allegiance to Hindi or any of the other Indic languages. It's a pan-Indian name, like many Vedic-culture names.

    Well, I believe you... but in Hindi, I'm still Arun.

    That I'm also Arun in Urddu and Sanskrit and twenty other languages is interesting, to be sure. Thanks for the news.

    By the way, Sam, I first learned about my name's Asian connection from a lovely graduate student in the English program at Virginia Tech. Her name was Babita Sachdeva, she was brilliant, and she showed me how to write my name in both Hindi and Urddu. Of course I promptly forgot, because I was so bedazzled at the time.

    Babita took me to task for not voicing the hard "t" in her name, a mistake I only made once. She also could identify the fibers in my clothing at a glance. Her family had made its fortune in the textile business, and had been at it for probably hundreds of years.
