The 'S' factor

Recently while talking to a friend of mine, I realized that, all the people with whom we used to pull her leg with had their names starting with the letter 'S'. Another friend joined us and I also realized that many of the people she had fancied(that I know of) had their names starting with the letter 'S'. I was laughing in my head at this phenomena and was wondering whether they find out the persons name, and start to fancy them only if it starts with 'S'. I was thoroughly amused. And that is when it struck me! All the people whom I had fancied when I was in college had their names starting with 'S'. Holy Cow! :O

What is with this 'S' phenomenon? I mean, are all people whose name starts with 'S' very fanciable? I don't even know if that is a word (Dear Editor, Help!), but you get the meaning right? Is it because the words 'Sexy', 'Sophisticated', 'Smart', 'Stylish', 'Successful' start with 'S'?

How many people have you fancied whose names started with the letter 'S' ?

PS: This is the 100th post! A century! Yaay!!! :D

Probably cos we people are naturally fancy-worthy? ;-)
hehe, a couple for me I think!

But on a serious note, it's probably cos it's one of the more common letter with which our Indian names start? I have more friends whose names start with 'S' than any other I guess.

Oh wow, same here. Except my first crush, all the people I've fancied have had names beginning with S.

Of course, the fact that 2 out of 3 names in West Bengal start with S(including my own) couldn't possibly have anything to do with it! :P

Hey !

Stumbled upon ur blog from Urv's.

Strange , but I realized it only after reading ur post, that majority of people I admire have their names starting with letter "S".

My childhood Crush' name starts with "S" , person I look upto as Mr. Perfect... his name starts with "S"

Strange , but cute :)
