  1. I saw a segment on Craig Ferguson last night when he was talking about some of the less flattering names of the competitors, such as Semen...

    Luckily these are much nicer - I'm quite taken with Ferran and Jorrit on the boys list :)

  2. Anemone caught me off guard, but it's actually very pretty, now that I think about it. I looked up Anémone Marmottan to see if I could find the story behind her name. Didn't find anything, but the Sochi2014 website says she uses the nickname Momonne.
