Anyone have a clue as to why the writer Iris Murdoch is always listed on this site as Irish Murdoch?

Don't have a clue, but apparently it's fairly common:

Iris: A Memoir of Irish Murdoch - Review

Actually, Irish is an uncommon woman's name that you can find in a baby name dictionary. One example of this is Irish McCalla, who portrayed Sheena, Queen of the Jungle on television. She was probably considered to be rather scantily clad for '50s television:

Speaking of Irish...
Has anyone noticed this new contributor named "Blessing Irish?"

Iris vs Irish
The Amazon listing for the book cited in the review above is:

Iris a Memoir of Iris Murdoch by John Bayley (Paperback - Sep 9, 1999)

If you Google it, there are:

664,000 hits on "Iris Murdoch"
4,550 hits on "Iris Murdock"
3,550 hits on "Irish Murdoch"

It is a **** typo, for crying out loud.

I'm not sure.

But Sequoia, don't spam (sorry for sounding like an admin or something)

lol, sheesh yourself, jk.

It doesn't really matter I guess...

To much posts might cause the forums to overload or something, but we don't have to worry about that for now.

That's the least of our worries....:rolleyes:

Least of Worries
Smoochie222, I agree. I'd be far more worried about a repeat of the Big Wipe like we had last Feb.
