      One day when I was at a bank at Mzuzu, I met a young woman named Shelinda.
      Her parents were Catholic missionaries (or dentists or something) during
      in the early 70s, and named their daughter after their favorite place--
      Chelinda lodge at Nyika Park.

      I'm starting to forget some of the crazy first names that Malawians had
      (God Knows, Hygiene, Lucky, Happy), but I'm also wondering if there are
      more Americans out there with crazy Malawian first names.

      I propose that some of you post your name lists for the ujeni historical
      record?
