    I need a list of probably 25-30 epicene names, that is "first" names that
    do not distinguish themselves by gender. Dorian and Cameron come to mind.
    I've also known two females named Lawrence, but that won't work. Ideally,
    there's a list somewhere. (Why do I need this? So students in a course
    can login under gender-free pseudonyms for a discussion session online in
    which gender is masked. I could just assign numbers or random nouns, but
    names feel more appropriate, as long as gender is not marked.)

    Would you please ask members of this list for any name/email
    address/contact information of faculty or administrator at St. George's
    University in Grenada, WI who is associated with the arts and sciences
    curriculum and/or library.

    Thanks very much.
