Darn it . . . didn't come here just to offer a correction: I thoroughly enjoyed the history. My paternal grandparents went to Hawai'i in the winter of 1956 or '57, probably aboard Lurline.

If the pronunciation matters as much as or more than the spelling, I can't help remembering Alabama governor George ("Segregation now....") Wallace's first wife, Lurleen.

Stephen: That correction is so embarrassing I can't bring myself to mention it. I quickly made the change and hope no one else noticed it.

Vasiliy: Yes, probably the same name, differently spelled!
