Cheri,

Thank you for the clarification, but as teachers you and I have probably seen 
names that have never before been seen (or will ever be again.) I've a mental 
notebook of some that fall under the heading of "What were his/her parents 
thinking ?" as well as some where "Clearly, the parents were either illiterate 
or had no understanding of masculine/feminine spellings."  And, then there are 
perfectly good names in other countries that don't sound great here. One, of my 
students' name was Phuc and I'll leave it to you to say it aloud. I had to for 
an entire year. 😳

I have had a "Gertie" in class, short for Gertrude, but don't know if she was 
Portuguese or not. 

Gayle
