Name The Girl in this Portrait by Modigliani

All the women in Modigliani's paintings have a characteristic tilt or curvy shape to their bodies and are generally represented with elongated bodies. Their necks are disproportionately long, even their arms and legs seem too long, especially for how thin they are. This girl is no exception. What name would you give her?


I was thinking Corliss Maude.

Name this Feller

 
 
What name do you imagine a man, this down on his luck, might have had? It was painted in 1924 by Norman Rockwell, so it was before the Great Depression. But people have always had hard times, and some people always do. I thought Eubous fit him nicely, picking a name from the ones I introduced you to last year. It seems interesting enough for such a person. His dog, I think, named Kit, for a brother or old friend named Christopher. Or a son. I'm picturing him in Florida or some southern state, where it doesn't get too cold at night.

Rename This Fashionable Woman

 
Her name is Olivia Palermo. I came across her browsing People.com's website. I have no idea who she is, though she must be famous for something to be on People. BUT all I need to know is that she has a fabulous name. Can you take on the task of renaming someone who is already perfectly named?
 
Let's see what you've got! Can you equal the name she's got or improve on it? I'll settle for just coming close, if I can. Genevieve Poirier
Well, not as good as Olivia Palermo, but not half bad!
