Strange but true.

Now I know that the Welsh and US folks have unisex names (Kerry, Lesley etc) in the past, but to think I may've been named after an Anglo-Saxon king?? Hmm, I'm not convinced about that!

It turns out that in amongst the slightly strange variants of names in bygone times, there lived a King Anna! I know that he did live in a rather serene and beautiful place though - Blythburgh (a little village) in Suffolk; a place surrounded on 3 sides by salt marsh and the River Blythe. Maybe this is where my love of villages and rivers comes from?
