Trivia for the Day

Through the years, I have always thought that my name was simply a variant of "Curt," which is often short for "Curtis." Same name, same origin in my mind. But no!

Curtis is an English derivation from a French surname meaning "courteous."

Kurt is a contraction for the German form of Conrad, meaning "bold counsel."

In an interesting coincidence, my mother, Barbara, was named for the patron saint of architects.

Cousin Don is, not surprisingly, the ruler of the world.
