Re: [mythsoc] Trendy languages & names
- And I know a girl named Elanor Arwen. And she's about my age (40ish).
Re your other post, Wendell, yes, it was a superficial interest in Gaelic
etc. that I meant by "trendy". That is the nature of "trendy," which is
why it is so aggravating when things that one treasures become popularized.
On the one hand, it means that there are indeed more books and such
available for one's own purchase and use, but on the other it means that
there is a ton of junk and a ton of unappreciative users. Oh well, I
shouldn't be such a snob.
