Comments: This aggression will not stand!

See, if there was still only one John on the ticket--either one of 'em--I never would have thought of that title. But how often do you see a Pres/Vice Pres pair with the same first name? Bill Clinton and Bill Gore? Jimmy Carter and Jimmy Hoffa? Ronald Reagan and Ronald Bush? Ronald Reagan and Ronald McDonald? Wierd....

George Washington and George Jefferson. That would be one hell of a balanced ticket! :)

You're absolutely right though. Strange. :/

Ok, I think I'll start enjoying my own freakishly uncommon name, now :-)

Don't feel bad Harv. Here's what it's origins are: HARVEY m
Usage: English
Pronounced: HAHR-vee
From a surname which was derived from the Breton first name Haerviu, which meant "battle worthy" from Breton haer "battle" and viu "worthy". The first name was introduced to England by Breton settlers after the Norman Conquest.

"Battle Worthy" ain't too bad of a moniker, howsomever, mine means "Given By God" in Hebrew. :P

Are you sure it doesn't mean "bottle worthy"? That would better explain my stint as a sailor :-)

But... but... "Breton" means FRENCH! I didn't think they HAD a word for "Battle-Worthy!

HA! Harvey's got a French name! I never even thought of that Sally. Now I can pick fights with him, 'cuz I know he'll surrender! :^)

Maybe being "Battle-worthy" was the ability to hoist a white flag at the first sign of trouble ;)

Smart-ass brats.

No desert for either one of you.

Posted by Harvey at July 10, 2004 02:28 PM

Sally started it! :P

The French have a word for battle worthy --


They also have a word for surrender -- "surrender."
