It's just a little stretch out of the norm... butt a fair ball in play and so swing I must!! The first name Erling breaks down into a cryptic "Erin ling"... Erin being the name of my daughter, who I mention in earlier posts today. BTW, today is my daughters birthday. Her surname is a cryptic "person (x2)"... very inner twin like. The etymology on "-ling":
Note from Erling's wiki page:
- -ling diminutive word-forming element, early 14c., from Old English -ling a nominal suffix (not originally diminutive), from Proto-Germanic *-linga-; attested in historical Germanic languages as a simple suffix, but probably representing a fusion of two suffixes: 1. that represented by English -el (1), as in thimble, handle; and 2. -ing, suffix indicating "person or thing of a specific kind or origin;"
Erling Persson (21 January 1917 – 28 October 2002)Today is her birthday too!!
Spoke to my daughter just now, the baby's head has moved down and his cord is no longer over his head so all is good so far for a natural birth-- my lil grand bubba is making his way, slow and sure into this world.
