People/Things With Whom I Share Initials

  • Elizabeth Bathory (“Countess ELIZABETH Bathory┬áis perhaps the most prolific serial killer in history and is remembered as the “Blood Countess.” She was born in 1560. Her wealthy family included the King’s of Transylvania and Poland. For political reasons, Elizabeth was married off to Count Ferencz Nadasdy of Hungary. She killed peasant girls, maid servants and women of the lower gentry. Her motives are unclear. Vampire lore claims that she believed their virgin blood would make her young, while most historians believe the murders were due to sadistic pleasure.” Seriously.)
  • Emma Bovary
  • Eva Braun

  1. In the “Ridiculous names that share my initials” category, you might mention Erskine Boyce Bowles (son of Hargrove “Skipper” Bowles, Jr.). You can’t make that stuff up.

    1. How much would you pay to be the daughter-in-law of someone named “Skipper”? Seriously. “Erskine” and “Hargrove” would also serve.
