Huh, well here's an interesting paradox:  "Linda" is on the approved list, 
but I have only come across it in all the records I've reviewed one time; 
it was given to an exposta who died at birth.  "Rosa", my sister's name and 
given in honor of her grandmother, her great-great grandmother,  
great-great-great grandmother and sprinkled all across our family tree like 
blossoms, is not.  "Traditional" phooey!
