Part of the membership of Club Desvelado is rereading various bits of Trollope. We had both forgotten about Lord Boanerges. K. asked where that name came from and I was surprised to find that I knew. Meeting with disbelief, I consulted Brewer's and found that I was correct. Both of us thought the pronunciation to be "bo-ANN-er-jeez" but it's really "bo-ann-URGE-ease" as it turns out. An on-line concordance describes Boanerges as a last name, but I'd call it an epithet. I had remembered that Lord Boanerges had something to do with the Jupiter or Thunderer newspaper, but it turns out that he's a great lover of meetings and statistics and said to be an analogue of the real-life Lord Brougham.
