It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Vivian 1: Vyvyan Vivyan of Trelowarren, Vivyan of Trevidren
Visitation says that "the name of Vivian has been spelt with i or y indifferently. The very earliest record of the name in England, temp., Will. Conq., gives it Vivian. The use of the y began about the time of Edw. I., and has since been adopted by different branches of the family." Visitation also says that "The name of Vivian was used as a prenomen in England as early as Will. Conqu" and then mentions Vivan de Molynes, son of William de Molynes. It is not known if that Vivian is mentioned purely as an example of the use of the name or as an indication that there is a possibility that the following family may have descended from him. It is not known if there was any connection with Vivonia/Vivonne in Poitou mentioned here.
Sir Vyell Vyvyan
Visitation identifies Sir Vyell's wife as "Margaret da. of Christopher count of Kildare in Ireland" but does so in italics, indicating either that her name had been added by the Harleian editor or that that editor deemed it insecure.
