What's in a name?

So this popped up on my radar - and made me laugh out loud.

It is from Museum Bulletin 173, published November 1, 1914 by the New York State Museum.  Looking at the front page table of contents, past the report on the Condition of the New Museum and under the Report of the Geological Survey you find the Board of Geographic Names.

Skipping deeper into the bulletin, past the drawings of the snazzy new exhibit cases and the pictures of the Saratoga fault,  one comes to page 44 and the report from the Board of Geographic Names.

And an author with an attitude.

My favorite:   GLENMONT: Hamlet. Fancy Name.
