This is an easy waltz to a good old song by Englebert Humperdinck 

Englebert Humperdinck, what a handle!   That old saying ‘what’s in a name’ gives the impression that  a name doesn’t mean much, but that’s not really true is it.   I mean if Englebert Humperdinck was called Bob Brown  then nobody would have ever commented on his name and  they most certainly wouldn’t have remembered it…..or his songs probably. 

 

On the other hand, who could forget the name Englebert Humperdinck?   Even if you wanted to forget it you probably couldn’t.  So, there really is a lot riding on a name  -  that’s why you  should  think long and hard before choosing a  a name  for your  kids…...even nick names stick for life. 

See you on the floor sometime……..Jan
