*Snicker*

I suspect a number of people on my F-list will be amused by this:

"- The guardians of animal nomenclature had mixed feelings over a proposal to name three newly-discovered species of slime-mould beetle after US President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. A pair of insect experts reserved the names Agathidium bushi, Agathidium cheneyi and Agathidium rumsfeldi for their latest creepy-crawlies."

Hm...

I've had good luck with recent Baby Name books (cliché, maybe, but it works), or I've stolen names from anime series. XD

One of my better resources is a little booklet lostsatyr and I picked up a number of years ago called The Everyone Everywhere List. It's a list of first and last names from a variety of countries. I could probably turn it into a PDF and send it along, if you like.

Would it be too much work to PDF that book? I don't want to trouble you.

Sorry for the lateness...
Oopsie...I just found this comment "archive diving."

I have a PDF of the booklet for myself; it'd be no problem for me to e-mail it to you. It *is* somewhere in the 5-6 MB category, though - that OK?

Thanks, sweetie!

You really go the extra mile, I respect that.
