    This is totally off topic, but- isn't The Road, totally effing devastating? The world went a little pear shaped for me for a while after I read it.

    There are some interesting names and enticing books noted so far!

    I've just started Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. Very excited to have it finally - I was like number 200 on the list when I put it on hold at the library. So far, I've seen the names:

    Males: Aadam (not a typo), Saleem, Tai, Nadir, Mian Abdullah, Daoud, Hanif, Mustapha, Rashid, Oskar

    Females: Naseem, Padma, Ilse, Ingrid, Alia, Mumtaz, Emerald (a nickname, I think)

    I like the names Aadam, Naseem, Alia, Padma, and Ilse the best so far.
    Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ Sarah
    Paul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
