Hi Nanaea - i guess i ought to explain some of the questions (without spoiling the idea of asking them ?!?)
There's a hypothesis by some linguists that people of the same socio-linguistic group would ascribed similar features to certain names (for example while Elizabeth could be an 'aristocratic' person, Betsy is probably your next-door-neighbour - which can influence your idea of a person bearing those names). So i'm not really interested in the character of someone called Elizabeth or Betsy but in the perception of the names themselfs... (sorry if this is still a bit fuzzy, it's almost two o'clock in the morning....

So again: i'd really aprecciate it if ALL OF YOU OT THERE could fill out my questionnaire on

Bye, Lulu
