I loved the story of how ‘Itzim’ got its name. Got any more? I like the ones that show a twist or some humor.

    There may be quite a few others – but I need the sort of memory jog that Hein produced with his double ‘Itzim’ – or a systematic search through the names I have registered, but I don’t seem to have the time or inclination for such a search just now. Anyway, thanks for your note of encouragement.

    Namraj is another of Brian’s scrambled names, and I think still a beautiful daffodil. The name takes one to a very exotic place, until you learn that it is the reverse spellling of his fellow daffodil enthusiast Eddie Jarman. Then again, I’ve never met Mr. Jarman, but hope I may get the chance when Anne and I go overseas to the World Convention.
