I was looking up last names online to find a name for a new character, and while I was on one site I looked up my own last name. Here's what it said!
Shaw - Originally given to a person who lived near a sceaga, Old English meaning "thicket".
Holy crap! My name means "thicket," and here I have a blog called "The Knotted Thicket," which was completely a coincidence. My ancestors would have been baffled.
