Spoiling Women'* Name.
Miujr, if not » majority, of the names
ot 800 or 900 girls Irooi the pablio ,
sellout* eraiuineil for admission to the
normal gives us the iaipreaaii n
that tkej belong f,o mere household pets
rather than to young woman who are
approaching; maturity, and who are en
gaged io serious work. These girls ap
parrntlj prater the nicknames by which
they arc known io the family cirole and ;
to intimate friends, and therefore take
puiuw to ndopt thorn in thfcir signatures.
Ins:d>ing, the ptiblio school girls
are not rx-eptional among our young
women, lor it in quits ths fashion now-a
--d»)« for them to grow so enauisured of j
t' air narxery appellations that they cling
to tbem as their Bxed and proper names i
They may even be offended when they
are addressed by tbeir oorreot names, ■
which they imagine loss pretty than
theso pet diminutives ; and soma grave,
grown up women will put Hattie or J
| Gusaie, Mamie or Hsllie on their oards
as if they were in pinafores still.
The fashion is American ; but our pa
triotism can not make us grow fond of
It. The nicknames whieh appear in so
large a share of these public school girl'*
signatures would do very woll for pats
at a dog-show. When they are axed to
«»piwi tha near
friend' and relatives, they also may be
pretty and appropriate, but they look
very silly ia a formal signature, and sure
ly do not befit the dignity of woman
Ws find, for instance, among these
800 nsoiea soores of Minnies or Mamies,
and only her aud there a Mary, a much !
more euphonious and dignified name.
Jane ia transformed usually into Jenny
Caroline into Carrie, Kllen to Ella, Elis
abeth into Lissie and Bessie, Kather
ine into Katie, Mirtba into Mattie.
Margaret into Maggie, Anne and Anna !
into Annie, and Harrie into Hattie
Such absurb names as these appear quite
frequently : Chattie, Lillie Millie. Tillie,
Kittie, Hosie, Nettie, Bibbie, Aggie and
The geeat aim aeema to be to manu
faoture a name whiob enda in ie, and in (
accomplishing it the finest appellations
for women who have names renowned I
in poretry and history, and. of a awect
and molodious sound, are chopped ap
into childish diminutives. They convey j
an idea of prettineaa, and do not beloog
to girls of dignity and character—girl* ]
like those who are going to the normal
college, so many of whom will have their
living to earn. And yet these girls
think it ia pretty tn be known by such
pet nsmee, and si dileard, as ugly and
old fashioned, the namea by w'uich they
are chriatened. Whs; would they think
to aee a college register wbicb give the
yoang men's names aa Jimmie, Billie,
Bobbie, Tommie, Charlie, Samie and
This faabioa ia etteo ding among wo

And yet thia is a peried when women

of their occupations outside of the domes
