Clare's insight:

The linnea flower is named after Carl Linnaeus, the botanist who classified the natural world... but he also classified people, and divided them into races, and we all know the trouble that has caused. Does that make Linnea a problematic name?

Mystery Monday: Quant

Mystery Monday: Quant | Name News | Scoop.it
Today’s name is a rather-modern sounding late 16th C Swedish name — or, at least, a name found in Sweden. Between 1591 and 1597, in a list of innkeepers from Stockholm, the same man shows up named Quant, Quante, and Qwant. While it’s reasonable to assume that most of Stockholm’s innkeepers were Swedish, there are other names in the list that show distinctly non-Swedish (generally more German) influences, so it’s entirely possible that Mr. Quant is not Swedish himself.
