Did anyone besides me notice that the "Wilson Gray"
who is the owner of this site is a woman? At the '72
LSA Summer Institute I met a woman named "Wilsonia,"
but I think that just plain "Wilson" as a woman's first
name tops both "Wilsonia" and "Tristan." OTOH, though
I have known women called "Mason" and "Stewart," I
don't count them because they were actually "Mary Mason
Surname" and "Mary Stewart Surname."
