Well, that seems appropriate.

A couple of days ago, I pointed out that a better name for climate change might be “Global Drenching”.

However, it’s clear that I’m not the only one who is thinking that way.

An article on the BBC website tells me that, in England & Wales, the most popular boy’s name for babies is now, apparently, Noah!

Coincidence? Ha! I think not!

If anyone can tell me why Noah is such a popular name, do let me know!

I can’t recall ever meeting a Noah, but then I also haven’t had children, so I’m not well up on the gossip around the school playground! Has there been a celebrity or a soap opera character or something with that name? Not really having watched TV much this millennium, I’m a bit out of touch!

Or perhaps a Harry Potter character? I those who read the books when they were young are probably at an age to have kids themselves now?

I’m sure name fashions just go in waves, but I don’t think of Noah as being popular in the past, at least not in this part of the world… It must have come from somewhere?
