    Default Definition of a name

    Just for Gits & Shiggles, I decided to look up my name in Google. I wasn't there, BUT I really get a kick out of the definition of my last name (Burke). Have a look:
    Dictionary
    burke (būrk)
    tr.v., burked, burk·ing, burkes.
    To suppress or extinguish quietly; stifle: burked the investigation by failing to reappoint the commission.
    To avoid; disregard: “To make The Tempest a tragic and depressing play he was willing to burke all the elements that made it the exact opposite” (Robert M. Adams).
    To execute (someone) by suffocation so as to leave the body intact and suitable for dissection.
    [After William Burke (1792–1829), Irish-born grave robber and murderer.]

    Thesaurus
    burke

    verb

    To hold (something requiring an outlet) in check: choke (back), gag, hold back, hold down, hush (up), muffle, quench, repress, smother, squelch, stifle, strangle, suppress, throttle. Informal sit on (or upon). See restraint/unrestraint.
    To keep away from: avoid, bypass, circumvent, dodge, duck, elude, escape, eschew, evade, get around, shun. Idioms: fight shy of, give a wide berth to, have no truck with, keepstaysteerclear of. See seek/avoid.

    Obscure
    burke

    1) to suppress quietly or indirectly {burke an inquiry}
    2) bypass, avoid

    hmmmmmm...............

    decided to check on mine, although I was pretty sure what it meant (duh!)

    rob·in ( rŏb ' ĭn ) n. A North American songbird (Turdus migratorius) having a
    rust-red breast and gray and black upper plumage.

    *** let's see; my chest gets sunburned while in garb (hazzards of bodice and rather endowed :D ) and my hair, before going to the salon, is dark brown instead of black with gray "highlights". I guess that pretty much does describe me -- Y I K E S***

    as for my last name, the only thing I could come up with was -- "the son of God". I think you can figure it out.
