Annals of catymology: a note from Ted
Ted from Detroit Lakes, MN, writes:
"I know two Native Americans named Aloysius. One goes by nickname 'Wishy.'
I guess the actual name is derived from Louis which is derived from Ludwig which meant 'famous warrior.'"
I appreciate the information, Ted! Although I have to admit that last night I failed in my effort to kill a bug in the family room. Fortunately, amanuensis squashed it. (Her surname, in its original language, also is derived from the word for warrior.)
