ON NAMES AND NAMING IV

Obama, it turns out, is the first American president with more vowels in his surname than consonants. This and other tidbits, orthographical, linguistic, and otherwise HERE. Not mentioned in the article, is the ever-important visual stackability issue:

BARACK
OBAMA

(cantilevered, but still
pretty damn good

despite the
syllabic asymmetry)


of course, visually,
it's no


RONALD
REAGAN

whose enduring appeal at last makes some sense to me.

It's all in the stack.

oh- and best design name suggested for me thus far:

"El Sund"
