“What’s in a name?” Shakespeare asked. Apparently more than we thought. That’s proved not just by IDEA’s Play Names & Terms Special Collection — which we highly recommend you check out if you haven’t already — but also by IDEA Founder and Director Paul Meier’s latest podcast. In the August edition of his “In a Manner of Speaking” series, Paul talks about the names we give our children. Specifically, he addresses our preference for two-syllable names with the accent on the first syllable. You can listen to it here.
