|Jane 2001||Folklore: Name of apartments, condos, townhouses (44)||RE: What's in a Name??||01 Jan 02|
What's in a name? A hell of a lot. This would be a perfectly acceptable town, I'm sure, if it wasn't called Grimsby and therefore the butt of every third rate comedian's wit. Unfortunately they've got the locals convinced. Regarding street names, they seem to be named fairly prosaically after prominent local people, but elsewhere I have seen Carsick and Deepsick lanes. I love old names with meanings, but can't imagine what these originally meant.
