The head lice gods continue to smile upon us

In Uma's class at school are four girls with similar names: Umα, Oonα, Emmα and Evα. It hasn't been a problem until today.

This morning I got a call saying to come get Uma from the nurse's office where she was being quarantined for head lice. Imagine my surprise and relief when I got to school and it was not Umα but poor Oonα sitting in the nurse's office scratching her head!

The nurse was very apologetic. Their kindergarten teacher said that they should make sure to put Umα and Οοnα in different classes next year...

Why are their names coming up with alphas instead of as for the last letter?

So they don't show up in Googlespace -- I didn't get Oonα's folks to sign a blogging release...

Well that explains it. And here I was trying every character encoding known to Mozilla trying to get those names to look right.

At first I thought that was my name. Explains the itching.

Who would have thought that name was so popular? Though it is a beautiful name, in all its variants!
