In the February 1968 Word Ways, the very first issue, there was an article concerned with the names of pop groups. Not so long ago, we were looking back through the list of group names which had been presented in that article. Times certainly do change! Three years ago a name like the Mindbenders or the Boxtops may well have been au courant. But now many of the names on that list are about as amazing and as fresh as the day before yesterday's newspaper. Many of the names seem downright quaint.
