Earl Thorfinn the Mighty? Why is that not in the top ten baby names' list (for the free world)? It is a very, very empowering name and fits either (free world) girl or boy. Romanians? No. Bulgars? No. Uzbeks? Maybe. Norges? Duh. Hispaniards? Would probably not be hugely comfy with it, but they are eligible in spite of their overall poor economic performance and unemployment rate. Korva Koleman? Ottie Cornish? Bruce Jenner? As a minor player in this life, he wishes he could be called that but the semi-celebrity lorga joya put out a fatwa on the very idea. They'll probably pile stones atop his semi-celebrated self until he begs for absolution. But not if his name had been Earl Thorfinn the Mighty! I rest my case.

This is the real heritage in Britain, lets celebrate this history instead of the trendies' obsession with "diveristy" and "vibrancy".
