We were told that about Spanish. I never quite believed it. All these people running round with the same name? Crazy.

Hmm well I'm not aware of this but my family is not religious and actually only a little proportion are in my area... I for myself only have a birthday and the only reason why my name is Vanessa is nto becasue of a Saint but because it's an international name and this I'm frnech and scotish my parents needed a name that could be pronouced in both languages without difficulty... wow how exiting , right... :p:
french pronouciation of my name gets on my nerves

English at Pembroke

My name's Mia; my birthday is 27/06/87; I live in Leicestershire and attend what is generally considered to be an okay state school (actually it's a "technology college" which means they get grants to spend on things like high-tech sewing machines that are only used when ofsted are about, whilst the music department is overcrowded and falling apart. Plus I had to do textiles gcse :hmpf: ); I'm doing Eng Lit, Music, French and Psychology A2s; I play flute, piccolo, piano and alto sax; I play in the county youth orchestra, various flute choirs and folk groups, and the school jazz and soul bands. And I like semi-colons. A lot.

I love Shakespeare more than is good for me, same goes for fairytales and folk stories. Also into Charlotte Bronte, Tolkien, Pullman, and (shamefully) Harry Potter . Like Adhsur, I like my books and tea I can't stand dance/rap/pop music and - weirdly - listen to rock music quietly (I'm deaf enough already from piccolo playing). I love Bach, Debussy, Einaudi, Kate Rusby, Alanis (tickets arrived this morning for the Manchester concert ), Sarah MacLachlan and the Goo Goo Dolls. Typically at the theatre on Friday/Saturday nights rather than clubs/pubs. I am not middle class; my parents came from poorer backgrounds and my Dad studied at Oxford (he's forgiven me for applying to the Other Place. Just.) I'm very short and have very long hair and grey eyes. I'm pretty insular/introspective but not aloof, just shy. I'm terrified about leaving my family and going off to university, but can't wait to become more independent and start doing something challenging. School is boring. :hmpf:

Anyway, I'll stop waffling. (Another of my favourite hobbies.)
Like ur name future neighbour

By the way how did u come up with this one?
I found it a while back. Got bored one evening and decided to see if there were any societies on MSN Groups, so typed in something like "Cambridge University Societies" and that came up. I was a little surprised to say the least!

Hehe right, ur just a guy! and look at what it's linked to if you open one of the posts
I never actually looked through any of the messages - the front page scared me off!!!

well i was told that previously french people had to name there child after one of the 365 names on the french calander printed in our french books... and i assumed it was based on the saints days... catholics sometimes have a secondbirthday on there saints day... i am not wuite that lucky.

But this could have been rubbish
I realized a few weeks ago when looking at a friend’s (French) diary that has all the saint’s days that I was unwittingly named the female version of the saint who shares my b-day!! My folks didn’t know about this, plus I’m catholic, so does that mean I lost my second birthday?

Meh, you know what I mean. With a population of [insert big number] there'd be all these people running around called Tomas. Three hundred and sixty five groups of 'all these people', but still. Mind you, my cousin is from Portugal (similarish, it's hot and that) and his name is Tiago (from Saint James).

The name thing is true I believe - my grandfather is a bit of a Francophile as he lives in France with his French girlfriend and phones us up to tell us about it. I'm surprised he doesn't have T-shirt that says "I'm 75 and still getting laid." *shudder*

Anyway, he phones me now on my Saint Day and irritates me, so it must be true (although it may only be practised amongst the older generations/ those from the Charante/ sad farts)

You don;t need to tell us that you have never been clubbing. You just dont appear to be the sort of person that does.


P.S. My intro will be up in a day or two
Haha... A clue! We'll see what will come next and maybe disocver the truth...
