The Best Places For Students To Learn About…Their Names is a “Best” list I keep updated and periodically use in my classes as a resource where students can learn about their names and the concept of names.
Here are some new additions to that list:
What your name tells us about your age, where you live, your political leanings and your job is from The Washington Post.
The Chinese Guide to Avoiding a Bad English Name is from The Atlantic.
What’s In A Name? It Could Matter If You’re Writing To Your Lawmaker is from NPR.
The importance of a name is from The Washington Post.
