===========================
While researching and thinking of how to use the word “Bliss” I found that the name Blythe,
meant
joy or happiness as does bliss.  I have a fascination with names, their meanings and
how names affect peoples lives, if at all.
I also thought of Cloris Leachman’s granddaughter, Hallelujah, 4,  (http://www.grandparents.com)
who is called “Holly”, or “LuLu”.  I saw Cloris on either Jan Leno’s show recently
and the young girl was in the audience.
