Names that stand the test of time

Frank…Gerald…Godfrey…Gordon…Gloria…Evelyn…Dorothy…Alice…Margaret…

When young Ugandans introduce themselves to Americans the American will often remark, “How wonderful, that was my (great)grandfather’s/(great)grandmother’s name!”  Many Ugandans have traditional English names as the personalized key-chains illustrate so well.
