  • 94. X is an Italian name that was not especially common in the middle ages, whose meaning had long since been forgotten by the late 1400s. In fact, the most famous person to ever be named X got it for no more profound reason than that it was his grandfather's name. This person was invariably known, during his lifetime and beyond by his first name, in stark contrast to other public figures of his generation. There are a few theories regarding the origin of X. The most commonly cited one is that it is a variant of Enrico, the Italian form of Henry, and derives from the Old German Haimirich (in later German Emmerich), from 'haimi', meaning home, and 'ric', meaning power, or ruler. Another suggestion is that it may come from the old German Amalricus, from 'amal', meaning work in Hebrew, plus 'ric'. X shows up in Italian writing from around the 12th century and may have been introduced by the Ostrogoths six centuries earlier after they established a kingdom in Rome under the rule of King Theoderic the Great.

April 1, 1972: The Veterinary Record, the weekly journal of the British veterinary profession, contained an article about the diseases of Brunus edwardii, which was described as a species "commonly kept in homes in the United Kingdom and other countries in Europe and North America." The article warned: Pet ownership surveys have shown that 63.8 percent of households are inhabited by one or more of these animals, and there is a statistically significant relationship between their population and the number of children in a household. The public health implications of this fact are obvious, and it is imperative that more be known about their diseases, particularly zoonoses or other conditions which might be associated with their close contact with man. For months afterwards the correspondence section of the Veterinary Record was dominated by letters about Brunus edwardii, most of which offered new observations about the species.
