Gamin de Pycombe. In the Weikman thread Jason mentioned this name. It has long interested me. Does anybody have any idea what that translates to? Or is just something that loses a lot in the translation like Fido from Pycombe. Thanks to the wonderful world of internet search engines I've spent a few minutes touring the West Sussex area and found the village of Pycombe (aka Pyecombe) and know now that there is a Pyecombe Golf Club. I also saw a picture of the beautiful Pyecombe Church. And lest I hurry over there too fast to check it out in person, I even learned that there is a police speed camera site adjacent to the petrol station at Pyecombe on the Police observation point. Isn't the internet grand? One moment you're a dunce and moments later you know answers to questions that could be worth a fortune on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". Now back to the Titanic and Robert Daniel's prize bulldog Gamon de Pycombe (as reported in Richard Norris Williams' biography). A few questions. What does Gamin or Gamon mean? Or it just an unusual name?(much "less than zero percent" of the people in the USA have that as a last name per another internet search.) And is there a possible connection between Robert Daniel and the village of Pycombe?
