Ohhh, Clodauuiua

William Gibson has been looking into Dutch female names prior to year 1100:

I was looking through a list of women's names today, Dutch, all prior to the year 1100:

Clodauuiua
Clotrada
Crapahildis
Cunegundis

Once you see the name Crapahildis it sort of sticks with you, doesn't it? And think of all the men who cried out "Clodauuiua!" with utmost longing.

I love the Dutch.
