We’ve been having lots of fun with this baby name popularity generator. Apparently, if I’d been born in the 1910s, my name would have been Winona. Yay! If I’d been born in the 2000s, my name would have been…Miracle. Somehow, I can’t see my parents going for that.

The gender-neutral honorific “Mx.” will be included in the OED. I still like Ms., but I am warming to Mx. because it looks as if the person is a supervillain, a la Mister Mxyztplk.

 There’s a new language arising on Instagram, and it’s made out of emojis. Hm.

And finally, this new “Listening Table” sums up the points of meetings. I think a lot of companies could use these.
