Corny Names

3:20 PM -- The Cornwall County Council has published its complete "Silly Names List":

    This list has been compiled solely from records held at Cornwall Record Office and has been collected together over the course of the last six years. The only qualification to appear on the list is the possession of a name which can be considered silly or unusual...
The names seem to go back nearly 500 years, and they make for a worthy read -- especially for expectant parents in need of ideas. The B's alone are worth the price of admission. To name a few:

  • Sebastin Bagglehole
  • Millicent Bastard
  • Balthazar Bone
  • Obedience Budge
  • Philadelphia Bunnyface
They just get weirder from there on out...

re: Corny Names More good news from Cornwall, courtesy of the BBC:
A Cornish farmer is believed to be the first in the county to experiment with breeding cattle on beer.
The Limousin herd at Woodland Farm in Fentonadle get through up to 40 pints of local brew a day as part of their enviable diet.
