...in continuation of
the previous post...

Proper names are familiar expressions of natural language. Their semantics remains a contested subject in the philosophy of language, with those who believe a descriptive element belongs in their meaning (whether at the level of intension or at the level of character) ranged against supporters of the more austere view whereby a name is one that has no meaning but its bearer or referent.

OTHER POSSIBILITIES FOR ME...

per Chip:

BIFF
MENDY

qua Jon Gray:

PETE
1968

Jeezus I'm old...
and that actually looks
kind of sepulchral...

PETE
066-46-..
.

Identity theft could be an issue....

as per Gabriele Wilson:

P-M
DAWN


which is catchy but eerily familiar..

Keenan style:

MENDELSUND

Though there is already a singly named "Mendelssohn,"
Felix-Bartholdy being so unwieldy...

Megan Wilson and Carol Carson
have suggestions
but they tend towards the
suitably insulting...

I guess Peter Mendelsund
it shall stay.
My grandmother
would be
so proud.
