Oops. Not used to that, over here it's kind of one stop shopping.
All the UK, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and 16 of the Commonwealth nations.
I confess, I do not know much of English, er, Commonwealth history?
Say what? We don't refer to Obama as the president of Washington, DC.

Hey, at least she had the sense to change the name of the kid she had with Woody Allen from "Satchel" to "Ronan." Satchel Paige was a great ballplayer, but the Baseball Hall of Fame is not a good source for baby names. I don't even think I'd name a kid Nolan, let alone Honus, or Pie. Or Shoeless.
There's been a weird fad in the US for about 10 years, of giving kids Medieval professions as names (Conner, Cooper, Fletcher, Hunter, Chandler, Mason); friend of mine swears if he has a kid, he's going to name it "Yeoman Witch-finder." I suggested "Apothecary Minstrel," but he said the kid might get teased.
(Peyton Place ? aaarff, no idea. But I bet it's not in Corsica.)
If my memory serves me correctly, a late 1950s work by Grace Metalious which was televised/serialised in the mid 1960s (64 -70?) ...all sorts of folk premiered in it, including the then very young Mia Farrow...
Just googled it.
She has about 50 children, none of them called Gandhi, or Mandela, even not Nelson.
To be fair, some of them came already named, but yeah-- those people on TLC who hoard animals-- animal control goes in, and they have 15 cats and 7 dogs in a 2-room house, and they haven't changed the litter box since the Carter administration. They get called "pet hoarders." I think there are children hoarders.
Also, she was quite good in Hannah and Her Sisters, although, I remember seeing it when it first came out, and thinking her relationship with Allen was running out of sand.
