Speaking of fantasy names - I'm somewhat surprised that I've never met a
real life Menolly. Anne McCaffrey's heroine's name fits very neatly in with
existing name stock, having similarities with melissa, Melinds, Melanie,
Molly etc. It's easy to spell and pronounce... so why (I wonder) has it not
been adopted?
