In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

I know, with all the posts about Coldplay, you might think I had forgotten about one of my favorite music groups. But ride in the car with me sometime when A Little Respect or Oh L'amour! comes on the radio and you will realize I am a diehard fan of Erasure. Best 80s band, imo (oops, "in my opinion" for those of you unfamiliar with that abbreviation). Do you know anyone else who, when they had to choreograph their own tap dance routine in college, chose Chains of Love? Yeah, maybe the TA who did her dance to TMBG's (They Might Be Giants) song "Constantinople" might have had the best choreography (well, and performance), but no one else was as devoted to their favorite band. (this tap teacher wanted us to free ourselves from the concept that we could only tap dance to jazz or broadway music, but that we could also do it to more modern stuff. So we all learned a routine to Madonna's song Vogue.)

So, have any of you ever done anything that would show you were just a bit over the top in your fanhood? (i.e. Dan naming his son Cougar would qualify. Getting a tattoo with a heart and Bon Jovi in the center of it or the person who owns a house near where my friend lives and the roof shingles are red and white with the red forming a big old U for the UofU.)
