Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. There's danger, Al. Don't lead your men that way.

Answer: Gerald

"...danGER AL Don't..." The word men directs you to find a masculine name.

Gerald stems from Germanic roots meaning "spear rule" and has fluctuated in popularity in England, where it was first brought by the Normans. Author and naturalist Gerald Durrell is one bearer of the name.

Note that "Al" and "Aldo", or for that matter, "Geraldo" are excluded as they are not six letters in length.
2. When dealing with an insufficiency, or dearth, urgent action by the king might be required.

Answer: Arthur

"... or deARTH URgent action..." The word king points not only to a masculine name, but is also an extra hint for the Round Table's leader.

Arthur is of Celtic origin, and besides King Arthur, one of its most famous examples would be Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington. A more recent example is the American actor Art Carney of "Honeymooners" fame.
3. "My garden is easily my favourite place," said the girl.

Answer: Denise

"... garDEN IS Easily..." Having a girl speaking indicates a feminine name. This eliminates the male "Denis", as does its length.

Denise is the French feminine form of the masculine Denis (which is the French form of Dennis), all of which derive from the Greek name Dionysius. The actress Denise Nicholas appeared in the TV series "Room 222" (1969-74).
4. The men waged war during farming's off-season.

Answer: Edward

"...wagED WAR During..." Men is used to indicate that a masculine name is sought.

Edward is a name of Old English origin that has stood the test of time (especially when compared to names like Ethelred). It has been the name of several kings and princes of England, as well as actors like Edward G. Robinson, Edward Norton and Edward Fox.
5. Hiking and camping are the boy's favourite things.

Answer: Gareth

"...campinG ARE THe boy's..." Boy indicates a masculine name.

Gareth is of Celtic origin and often associated with Wales. Examples of those bearing the name are Welsh footballer (soccer) Gareth Bale and Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas.
6. When you finish writing your feminist blog, lend a hand with dinner, please.

Answer: Glenda

"...feminist bloG LEND A hand..." Feminist is meant to suggest a female name.

One might think Glenda is the feminine form of Glen (and in some cases it probably is) but my Oxford "Dictionary of First Names" gives that role to Glenna, and calls Glenda a modern name coined in Wales. Oscar-winning actress and Member of Parliament, Glenda Jackson springs to mind as an example.
7. Both girl and boy turtles lie on rocks in the sun.

Answer: Leslie

"...boy turtLES LIE on rocks..." The beginning of the sentence points to a name that is used for men and women alike.

Leslie derives from a Scottish surname, and the use of this spelling for women is largely an American practice, with the spelling Lesley more usual in the UK as the feminine form. Actor Leslie Howard and Canadian/American actress and director Leslie Hope are examples.
8. After she broke her femur, I elevated her spirits with my jokes.

Answer: Muriel

"...her feMUR I ELevated..." The words "she" and "her" point to a feminine name.

Muriel, and its variants Meriel and Merrill, derive from an old Celtic name. Author Muriel Spark is an example.
9. Don't grab, rend and rip her dress!

Answer: Brenda

"...graB REND And rip..." "Her dress" is the indicator for a feminine name.
This, along with word length, eliminates the masculine Brendan as an answer.

Brenda is possibly derived from Scandinavian roots that include "brand" meaning "flaming sword". Actresses Brenda Blethyn and Brenda Vaccaro are examples.
10. Be truthful with him, or risk losing his trust.

Answer: Morris

"...with hiM OR RISk losing..." "Him" indicates a masculine name.

Morris is a variant of the name Maurice, a mostly French name that arrived in England with the Normans. Morris the Cat was an advertising mascot for a particular brand of cat food. Human examples include actor Morris Chestnut.
