Re: Independence Day Quiz


Ahem... we seem to have forgotten the last year thing. See bottom of page 1.

Anyone care to try guessing sex of 100 names?

13/19 right, Petal. Better than random guessing.

Mo, that was kind of my point here. Try ten or twenty.

Re: Independence Day Quiz


The ones you got wrong:

Sakari, Ilmari, Toni and Kalle are male.
Kalle is a very common name, originates to Karl>Kaarle>Kalle - but also old Finnish Kalervo.
My late uncle was Ilmari, name straight from Kalevala and our mythology.
Sakari comes from Zachary
You should've known we write Tony with I as Tommy has become Tomi :)

Titta and Heli are female.

Re: Independence Day Quiz


Lots of names left on that list...


Running out of ideas (and enthusiasm), I'll just do a little one this year. The following are Finnish names for countries; take a wild guess what these countries are:

1. Itävalta
2. Sveitsi
3. Tanska
4. Ruotsi
5. Yhdysvallat
6. Puola
7. Saksa
8. Norja
9. Venäjä
10. Ranska

(some you could figure out, others you have to totally guess)

Re: Independence Day Quiz


I just meant to point out I'm putting IDQ this year at Paradise Lost since nobody was here for now, but I notice no-one has yet tried last year's.

Somebody give a try, please.

Re: Independence Day Quiz


I won't do a new IDQ this year, because:
1. not many people around here
2. there's the 2014 (country names) nobody has tried yet (and most of 2012 first names)
3. I'm lazy
4. I'm going to have to come up with something big for next year...
