How do you react when you're told "Well Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans but your Aplink system is still working" Probably with a big BOO YAA!!!

I do agree with all of the ideas you have offered for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

Meredith means Great Lord and is for male or female. There have been numerous men named Meredith.

Wikipedia claims that "Meredith" was a dude's name up until the 20th century, which is when it apparently switched over to being a girl's name. I guess this whole "Lord of Battle" meaning was forgotten, or parents wanted to be "ironic" long before the Hipsters came on the scene and made "being ironic" "cool"??

I think it's too late to turn back the tide now, despite the irony Meredith is a female name now. Just as, despite Gone With the Wind, no dude will be recognized by such by just his name if it were "Ashley", no dude will be recognized as such by name alone if his name is "Meredith".

A tragedy, but from it I have learned a cursory history of the name and the irony that it today holds, so it isn't a complete loss lol.

I wish people would assigning names that leave the named person's sex in question.
