    Hi, since Sudan and luna are on the list, does that mean Susan, Suzy, Judy & ruby should be, or are they a different sound? Thanks for the clarification.

      I was running a bit low on words for this list so thought a couple of proper nouns wouldn’t hurt, but I guess it’s a slippery slope! I don’t want to have more names than other words. However, Ruby is a Thing so I have added it. Thanks for your help.
