Oh, I forgot to say that I use the name for my business and social media 'branding' ...

I do try to maintain the dignity and the value of the Moonraker name, and also to share the meaning with those who ask about it.

See you later!

Thanks for yr message! Ha, I'm afraid I am not a Wiltshireman ... so it's as if nicked your nic really ;) Actually I got the name from a beautiful old gaff cutter that used to be moored in Simonstown. I am in Cape Town (family came here in 1806). You know, I think I first read about the Wiltshire legend in one of Henry Williamson's books (from the Saga of Ancient Sunlight).

Well, thanks very much for following me, and I wish you a fantastic year in 2011!
