    East93, Cedric is mentioned as being "sissified" within the first paragraph of the description. I missed it too, on my first read-through.

    Someone should make a thread about which 'girl names' it'd be interesting (if highly unlikely) to give to/see on boys...

    I absolutely love this thread.
    Boys: Ignatius, Hieronymus, Casimir, Osias, Ludovic, Hesperus, Calixto, Aurelius
    Girls: Amarantha, Jacintha, Isannah, Chrysantha, Jonquil, Oleanna, Esmeranda

    I included Cedric because of this:

    The name was then sissified as Little Lord Fauntleroy, the long-haired, velvet-suited and lace-collared boy hero of the Frances Hodgson Burnett book, who became an unwitting symbol of the pampered mama's boy.

    Yes, it was Pomeroy! 'Sissy' should never, ever be used as an adjective. What are we, schoolchildren? In 1950? Come on.
