Happy November! Has the Halloween candy coma ended yet, or has it just started? 

I’ve been working on several interesting name-related projects in the past few days. I needed a break from one in particular, and in the midst of researching/analyzing I realized I hadn’t written any posts for this series in over a month! I published the list of Rare ‘D’ Names for Girls on September 27th and was subsequently sidetracked. So, here we are.
