For it was Mary...Mary
Plain as any name can be.
But then society for propriety
May say....Marie.

But it was Mary...Mary
Long before the fashions came
And there is something there
That sounds so square
Its a grand...old...name.

Wow! I counted only three Marymacs - guess she's have to get a talking-to. There are six Alices registered, but only one who studies songs in the shower. There are two people registered with Sorcha's real name, but the other is in Florida. I guess there are about fifty Joes - I lost count. Three people named Max.

It does get confusing doesn't it? I am pretty sure that the MaryMac some of us know from the radio is MaryMac90 and I think she is 2 of the other MaryMac's (the ones with locations). I have a feeling in the back of my mind that the one that is just "MaryMac" is a completely different person.

With regards to the duplicate memberhips, apart from Joe's reminder, surely it even creates hassle for the member who must have 2 or more sets of PMs to check if they are not to miss them.

Another Mary I can think of, and I think she is still around is "Sings Irish" - one of the 2 people to introduce me to Mudcat from the newsgroups I used to read (and still would if my ISP had a decent news server) - she and Jeri have a lot to answer for!

Sorcha, I think most of us are the same generation. Now I'm not saying y'all are as old as I am, afterall, I'm older than Spaw (and we know that's older than #$%^&), but have you ever heard of a little girl named Mary in the last 20 years?

Yes MMario, but are they a double-name Mary (Mary Beth, Mary Jane, Mary Lou, Mary Warren, Mary Margaret (me)) or just Mary? I haven't met a little girl named just Mary in many, many years. If you know one, tell her how special she is, and hello from me.

I now live in a heavily Catholic town. One of my friends, Mary Annette, tells the story of the old priest here who used to baptize all, and I mean all, little girls with the first name of Mary. He had to slip it in under his breath. Many families had little girls with four names, all with the first name of Mary!

In the Irish there are two versions of Mary - one for Our Lady and the other for ordinary use. Muire and Maire (and there are spelling variations of both.)

I suppose it's some misplaced embarassment about the name that has knocked it out of common use these last couple of generations, after centuries during which it was by far the most common girl's name in England and in America, among Protestants just as much as among Catholics, in spite of everything.

Perhaps people worry that if she's called Mary, any deviltry she gets up to will be a little bit worse. The way you don't get Jesus much as a common boys name in English.

Onhe thing I predict with certainty is that Mary is going to be a common enough name again in time.

Yep, I'm a Mary. So is my mother, and that led to confusion before I grew up and moved off on my own. Telephone callers, someone yelling "Mary!" at a party (lots of Marys among my parents' friends). At college I lives in a dormitory with about five other Marys on the same floor, in the same section. *Ahem* I was the only one who didn't have some kind of descriptor (middle name, nickname, whatever) grafted to her name.:)

Surely you know that to become a member of the inner clique (MCIC) you have to have once been called mary, changed your name to mary, wanted to change your name to mary, have a good reason for changing your name from mary or have a good reason for not changing you name to mary.

It's all on the application form.
