As Miss Winnifrith returned home yesterday, her elder brother Joshua displayed a mixture of pride and alarm that he may be overlooked. He certainly likes the T-shirt received from his godmother and Aunt F as you can see below. Miss Winnifrith now has two three Christian names selected.
Her chosen name is Jayarani, an Indian name. Her middle name is a made up one, Cly. My late Aunt was christened Serena but my mother nicknamed her, as a baby, Clytemnestra, the wife, and also murderer, of Agamemnon. The name is taken by some to mean “famed for her suitors” but by others to be “famed for her cunning.”. Anyhow, my Aunt was always known as Cly.
And the third Christian name is the same as Joshua’s third Christian name, my wife’s surname. Jayarani’s surname will be Winnifrith.
