With all the angst in my mind earlier this week,

With the fact that this is something that, ultimately, I have been training myself for for more than two decades, but never actually dreamed I'd be in a position to implement,

With the fact that everything has happened so fast, it's been just over a month from the initial serious conception of the plan, and in that time I have acquired a seriously enthusiastic and supportive team, talked with and gotten advice from people involved with many other related, though disparate, projects, and from them have received nothing but interest and a willingness to help. It seems that I'm not the only one who thinks this is a good idea, a worthwhile project to pursue.

This is it, folks. I'm coming out of the academic closet. I'm throwing the towel in. 2014 is the year when I don't try to pretend that, academically, I'm just a logician, to hide from my "real" academic colleagues that I also do onomastics. [Irreverent side note. This is also the year that I finally add 'onomastics' to my firefox spellcheck dictionary so it doesn't keep underlining it.]

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing:

the Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources

Still very much in its infancy, but on its way to becoming a reality.
