Re: Humbert genealogy & PF search (fwd)
From: George Shimanovich <gshiman@bellatlantic.net>

In response to Kelvin Lu it should be noted that Humbert author changed his
real name in book called Lolita. I recall that he stated it clearly somewhere
in the book that his name rhymes with 'Humbert'. In a way it makes the
referral to Lolita's dad in genealogy of name Humbert irrelevant (to possible
disappointment of Humbert and his fans). But I for one will vote in favor of
including Nabokov in the above mentioned genealogy.
