  9. Think your website is the best! Four years ago I legally changed my name. I have five first names and two surnames. I sign one way, and am called another way by everyone who knows me. The names I sign with, and am called are inclusive of the ones I had changed. My now legal names are compromised of the three I was born with, which I love, two from my dead husband, which I love, and two of my choosing, which I love. Also, another question, please, when the number 11 appears, is it reduced? Help! Sea

  10. Interesting research and must read literature,transcripts,scripts and manuscripts.well informed history of numbers and events.
