 The 12dicts Word Lists
The other list, the 2of12 list, is more inclusive in that it includes words listed in as few as two of the source dictionaries, but less inclusive in that it excludes items of various sorts, including multiword phrases, proper names and abbreviations.
Unlike the 6of12 and 2of12 lists, this list is not based exclusively on the contents of my 12 source dictionaries, and for this reason it has, I feel, less authority than the other classic 12dicts lists.
Because these two lists have the same rules for the kinds of words included, one could easily combine the two to produce a slightly larger list including a number of words whose omission from 6of12 is rather surprising.

 A Consideration of Pictish Names: Material   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The name "ghosts" that appear in the Pictish and Welsh genealogies seem likely to be remnants of an oral formula where the preposition is used to mean "after" (or possibly "before", in which case the interpreted order may be erroneous).
This list is followed by the introduction of Kenneth MacAlpin, whose reign belongs to the mid-9th century, marking the end of the rule of Pictish kings.
Other than these names, the only identifiable elements in the inscriptions are the word "crroscc" (from the Gaelic for "cross"), and a number of instances of Gaelic "maqq" or "meqq", the usual Ogham form of "mac" (son) and possibly its genitive "meic".

 Unique Baby Names
I have a friend who named one son "Trevor", one son "Spencer" and her daughter "Taylor" which were her mom's, her husband's mom, and her own maiden name.

Location Names can be a great way to find a name of significance for your child - especially if you (or your spouse, grandparents, etc.) were born in a unique place, or if there is a special place from your childhood memories.

 FAQ on the Radicore Development Infrastructure
When you access a database table through its own table class the name of the database is built into the class and does not have to be specified again.
Because it would be unusual for a PHP installation to have both the MySQL functions and Improved MySQL Extension installed at the same time it is possible to detect which is available at runtime and to create an object from the relevant class.
In a screen which deals with two database tables in a parent-child relationship, such as a LIST 2 screen, there is no problem if they are different tables as the table names are used to identify which data goes where in the screen.

Plan 9 uses a shared file name space to combine multiple networked machines—compute servers, file servers, and interactive workstations—into a single computing environment; plumbing’s design as a file server is a natural by-product of, and contributor to, the overall system architecture [Pike92].

 Why Middle Names Are Important - FamilyEducation.com
If your child has four names (two of them being middle names), there's a good chance that he or she will often be limited to using only one of them.
If a middle name wasn't indicated, the program would insert NMI, which is military shorthand for “no middle initial.” While most folks do know what this acronym means, there are still some who don't, and if it shows up on a list of any sort, they think it's some exotic middle name.
Or they may be asked to use their middle name to differentiate themselves from others who have the same first name (just like centuries ago!), such as in classrooms where popular naming styles have resulted in a few too many Courtneys or Michaels or Emilys.

According to the article, those generic brand names are grossly overvalued and may even be detrimental to the success of the companies that use them.
