    Musicology?

    Your name wouldn't happen to be a transliteration of the name "Eve" would it?
    Musicology: mu∑si∑col∑o∑gy (my z -k l -j ). n. The historical and scientific study of music. - musicology - definition of musicology by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Nope, it's a nickname a friend gave me a few years ago when we were having a daft conversation in French. She kept telling me, "Ta tete resemble un oeuf" (your head resembles an egg), and then noticed that if you added an A to the end of oeuf it sounded similar to my own name (Aoife, an Irish name that sounds a bit like Eva with an F instead of a V). Though you could take it as a transliteration in that sense.

    I'm obsessed with granddads, so we should jive nicely.
    I hope not in the same way Wayne Rooney is obsessed with grannies! :O

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone!

    I've a niece named Aoife. (I noticed the similarity in pronunciation, prompting my question). Hmmm... I'd thought Aoife was a celtic version of Eve, but some website is saying that Eve is an anglicized version of Aoife!

    Oh well. Welcome to the forum.

    Actually, it's completely unrelated to Eve/Eva. It comes from the irish word aoibh/aoibhinn meaning beauty. Eve is of course a biblical name and has drastically different roots. Eva has some Latin roots I think. AFAIK they are unrelated.
