I am intrigued by this concept of 'linnation'.  Could you please explain
it further?

Is Aonnika a linnation of Annejke?

Does every Gaelic name have a linnation?  Is there a list?

Is there some sort of regular change from the name to the linnation?

Do other cultures have linnation?

It it similar to First Person, Second Person, Third Person conjugations
in English, only applied to nouns instead of verbs?

Is it related to the Binomial Nomenclature developed by Carl von Linne'
(Linnaeus carolus)?

Is 'chimera hwo' connected with the heraldic chimera, with a lion's head
vomiting flames, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail?

Is it proper for me to put "Info" on the subject line when I am requesting
(rather than providing) information?

Am I asking too many questions?

Am I asking inappropriate questions?
