Ah Northkin....so we meet again.

The strangest thing I heard was from one of my students. Her name is Bianca. Pretty name not unusual. What is unusual, her english name used to be Lily. But she changed it because her previous foreign teacher said it was too informal!!!

What the hell! It's a name. It's neither formal nor informal.

I told her, her old teacher was crazy and probably liked Bianca better so he wanted her to change it. Lily probably was the name of his ex wife or something.

I've never liked the name Bianca.  Lily is much better.

I would agree. but I like Bianca as well so it does not matter to me personally. Plus she seems to think it is informal despite what I say to her so there is nothing I can do.

I am pleased with Lily or Bianca. I have no qualms abouth either one.
