Christian Names

In the 1990s I made a good amount of money from computer programming -- as a hobby. This evening I fired up Windows 95 under Linux, to revive an old program called "Christian Christian Names" (above). With this program, one could (and can) creatively browse nearly 800 Christian given names. Here, in a half-minute recording, I do a "tight" search for girls' names containing the sequence "Hanna". Then, I do a "loose" search for the same, for which I developed a special algorithm -- it was an "imaginative" search, as one sees. I close with a random search. OBSERVATION: One could also do an exhaustive search, which would find everything related in any way to (say) "Hanna". There were a few other options besides.
