Concerning; "Christian XnnieM.*'
May one interject a gentle protest against
the use of the phrase "Christian name"
In this connection!' The Romans said
pnenonicn, the French say prcnoin, and
wo have used the word "forename" for
the. last 3(in years. It- Is us incorrect to
speak of the Christian name of a Jew, for
example, as it would be hopeless to expect
a Christmas card from a Jewish rabbi.
Again, ihe middle name of a Roman was
his gentile, naiui?that of his gens. On
tho surface, what a pretty confusion of
Ideas It would have, been to have spuken
uf tho name as at. once gentile and Chris?
