Here's a question for you: what is the oldest name still used by people today?
I had this fun conversation with Aven and Amalia on twitter yesterday, and we weren't able to come to a decisive answer. Aven cleverly suggested Eve. Amalia thought maybe Krishna. My idea was Inana, who appears in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
It has to be a name either written down or provably used by a real person of ancient times.
To be counted as still in use it has to be a name chosen by parents or in some sense natural (i.e. not one deliberately adopted in later life).
The floor is open for suggestions!
