Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/29/17

Love has no uttermost, as the stars have no number and the sea no rest.”   —   Eleanor Farjeon

(A nice poetic line, from a poet who appears to be new to the Cryptoquote.  I’ve got to be in the right mood to *enjoy* poetry, as I’m a very simple man.  I couldn’t figure out this last name to save my life.  I was extremely surprised to find that she was English, as the last name sounds about as British, to me, as Ndamukong  Suh sounds German!  I was also frustrated in not being able to learn “Farjeon”‘s origin and/or meaning.  Has the end of net neutrality already come into play???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Farjeon sounds like Norman French.

    You know that England has a pronounced French influence ?

    After the Norman French left Normandy, crossed the English Channel to invade England, and conquer the Anglo-Saxons, the Normans became the English upper-class and everybody else became lower classes.

    You can tell who is who by listening to their accents.

    I had figured Norman French, lwc. The English language is populated with a healthy dose of French words, thanks to Billy the C and Co.! I was more perturbed that I couldn’t find the name’s meaning/origin. Also, it looks more like bastardized French, to me. But, thanks for the cool link! — YUR
