What’s In A Name

Working on my genealogy this morning, I came across a particularly intriguing name – Digory Corwithin.. Digory Corwithin

There was a Professor Digory Kirke in The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.

But Digory Corwithin lived centuries before C. S. Lewis. In fact the given name Digory was quite common in the 16th and 17th centuries. “Digory is a boy’s name meaning “the lost one”.
