    Ever Heard Of It?

    Was glancing through a teacher study guide, and spotted these two names of I'm assuming imaginary students that stuck out to me.

    Bronya and Sewell.

    I have heard of Bronya (and love it). It is a short form of the Polish Bronisława (usually rendered as Bronislawa). It is sometimes spelled Bronia.

    I've heard of Sewell as a surname. Never heard of Bronya, but sounds eastern European.

    Ditto - I think of the actor, Rufus Sewell.

    Huh, I have not heard of either. Pretty neat! Bronya is pretty in a tough, strong kind of way. Reminds me of Bronte.
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!
