  1. “Willow”? How nice that her parents have given up stuffy old things like saints’ names. Back to nature! How long has it been since pagans had a chance against Jesus and His chosen ones?

  2. Maria Edite says:

    Dear Mr. James,
    I shall remind you that children’s names are generally the names chosen by the parents.
    So, what about if they choose John or Michael? Better than Autumn (and Spring, and Winter and Fall), or better than Isle (the island of Adventures?)?

  3. Geneology is A Very Important Knowledge and are Family Trees. This is Good. To Know A Historical Backround.
