Names Solitaire

Name Solitaire is a thread to learn common English names.
Like, Count to 1 million - #249 by Memorizer16.

I will take the lead with 3 examples. Please continue with the last character in previous name as the initial of the new name. In case there is so deadlock in a name like, X…? We can come back to the previous two name.
Note please use ctrl+F to ensure there is no duplicate names.

To break language barriers between countries, I will mainly use anagram and rhythm of English, preserving most characters of a name.

@Ogabek Thanks for your support, and actually we are playing the solitaire game, the last character in the previous name, will be the first characters of the new name.
E.g.
Aaron → Neal → Larry → Yarrow → William →
Mike → Elizebeth
Harry → Yasmine → Emily → Yvonne

Jerry
Merle

Someone asked me why not use the Chinese language to memorise the names?
:grimacing:
There are two reasons.

  1. Most of the names are based on the English translation. Like many people playing in their mother’s tongue :stuck_out_tongue:, replied some English translated names are really orchids. This case is common in different languages.
  • The only way, we can address it is by inviting the local mnemonic users to give feedback and do constantly updates.
  1. Typing in English words are much easier for me, it’s because the Chinese characters are complex compositions. There is a phenomenon that people forget how to write the correct characters and have the a very similar character, in terms of sound or shape. Results in my hand :writing_hand: writes my mouth :lips:. A local slang :joy:.

Thus, I think it’s much better to learn English names in HK, In addition, HongKongers call his friend’s Nickname are more common than address the full name of a person, some also considered it’s rude to call the person in full name. But it’s also feasible if u r close to someone, u can call his/her last name.

What’s the interesting name phenomenon in your home country?
Don’t be shy and share. :blush:
