Title: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by Ally on Jul 4th, 2003, 9:52pm
Firstly a few disclaimers

I haven't always been consistent with names, eg Daisy Venables and Peggy Bettany are under these rather than Margaret,
However, Len Maynard and Nella Ozanne are under Helena and Peronelle respectively

Where there are EBDism's with names, I've used the most common form.

The list includes:
All Chalet girls
Staff who were never pupils
St Scholasika girls who were never pupils
St Hilda girls (because they lived and breatheed the school for a year)
Any girls likely to be future pupils

Ally, you're amazing! These lists are great!

Ally these lists are wonderful. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.  I know it's hard work as  I have started a few lists of all the characters that appear in the books and as this was in my pre computer days I kept forgetting to add them to my main list then I got side tracked and gave up.

Well done you.

Post by crashbb on Jul 5th, 2003, 2:57am
Wow what an amazing list.  I never realised how many characters there were in the books.  It seems like we always here about the same 20 or so people, over and over again.  Well done Ally!!

Wow! These lists are great! Just one thing, could you put where/when each girl appeared?

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by ariella on Jul 6th, 2003, 12:59am
Wow ... the list is great ... only there are so many names I don't know / remember! I guess with the focus of the books on just a few the rest slipped by

Post by austriaamy on Jul 6th, 2003, 3:01am
I feel really sorry for you, if you have to type out all those names, although I suppose some letters won't have any(X for instance, as I can't imagine EBD having an Xanthe) and some only about three.

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by Adelheid on Jul 7th, 2003, 8:07pm
An amazing feat, Ally

Question, though - if Nella Ozanne is under her full name of Peronelle, is Vanna Ozanne under Giovanna?

(Sorry, but I've just been reading Janie of La Rochelle, so I can actually remember their full names!)

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by Ally on Jul 7th, 2003, 9:00pm
Thanks for the Flowers everyone!  ;D  and yes Vanna is under her full name.

Aletea: If you want to know what books they were in either check KB's lists or buy the A-Z of Chalet Characters, as that is just too much work!

ps E's coming up shortly

Finished!!! ;D

A few useful (useless!) facts and figures gained from this project:

Total number of names: 874
No. of mistresses/matrons not ex-pupils with a given name: 39
No. of non CS St Scholastika girls: 12
No. of St Hilda's girls (and staff): 18 + 3 = 21

Top 10 (11 actually) of names

1.  Mary (23)
2.  Anne (19)
3.  Marie (14)
4.  Barbara (11)

Post by LisaA on Jul 9th, 2003, 9:26am
The lists are incredible!  It's not surprising really that there are so many EBDisms - with that many characters to keep track of, some are bound to go awry.  When I teach children English I always advise them to have only 2 or 3 characters in their stories so that they can develop them fully.  Good job I didn't teach EBD;  I think we would have been the poorer for that advice!

Ally, thanks to your lists and my own copy of "The A-Z of CS Characters" I have a much fuller list of girls for my own fic. Thanks for that. Aren't you glad it's being put to a positive use?  ;)

Don't get your hopes up too high. It's still a loooong way away. I have to do a lot of research first into areas I don't know much about, like how people suffered the war in Singapore and Australia. Perhaps New Zealand, too.

Good girl. Patience is a virtue, albeit a very dull one.

KB: I will endevour to be patient but oly as long as you promise to keep us regulary updated  ;)

To my horror after reading a short story on Lorraine's site 'The Midnight that didn't come off' from the Second Chalet Book for Girls I discovered a Mary Brown and a Moira Redmond.

Typical EBD that they don't appear in the series proper.

If I missed anyone else out it was because they were not termed pupil in the A-Z, and in the case of 'grandchildren' I wasn't sure how old they were, and so played on the side of caution.

*Ahem* I hearby promise to keep all my eager readers updated as to the progress of my fic. I will put up a special heading on my fics section.

Actually, on second thoughts, I think I'll put up a sort of online diary of my progress instead (like a blog, but more specific). It might be easier to keep it separate from this site, where I already have a fic up with that name. Less confusion.

Phew it was exhausting just reading those lists! It's amazing how much there is to read after only 6 days of me being away!
Well done Ally :)

Nice lists!  This board certainly is home to lists of all kinds =)

There's also a character called Millie Allen who appears in 'A New Flavouring For Pies' from the 3rd Chalet Book for Girls.  I couldn't find her on the list.

I don't know whether the list included characters who were just in CS Books for Girls, but you'd have to ask Ally to be sure.

BTW, Ally, can you email me a copy of the list? bruce_katherine@hotmail.com

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by Ally on Jul 11th, 2003, 8:46pm
I'm getting the feeling none of the Chalet Books for girls are included in the A-Z of Chalet Characters, though the newsletters are!

If anyone finds other charaters please let me know and I will insert in the correct place.  But I would like to know what happened to these girls, why aren't they in the series proper *grrrr*

Um KB, having the lists may be a little difficult as they are on paper.  I only have excel on my work computer, and I didn't feel that I could get away with typing all that out whilst working.  However, I plan to type them as a word document at some point, so I'll keep you posted.

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls

Okay, never mind. I'll just copy the lists onto my computer and work from them there. Thanks anyway!  ;)

Whoever mentioned a while back about the lack of Joyce's in the CS I though you might be interested in a quote from Jo when she first meets the Lintons that you would get 'a dozen Joyce's to one Gillian.

Using EBD's given ratio there should be 48 Joyce's! as there are 4 Gillians.

Sounds like she got a bit confused!  Joyce obviously wasn't one of her pet names!

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by claire on Jul 15th, 2003, 7:41am
But she may have been meaning that there were a lot of Joyces around - but not in the class of girl who tended to go to CS

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by catherine on Jul 16th, 2003, 12:51am
True.  I am quite surprised though that there were only ever two Joyces in the whole series!

Title: Re: First Name A-Z of Chalet Girls
Post by KB on Jul 16th, 2003, 12:54am
I am, too, particularly as EBD makes such a point about it being common, but I suppose that, if you don't like a name, you wouldn't use it as often.

This is the first time I've looked at this- and horrified to find that most of the names just make me think 'who?!'

Intrigued to see Elizabeth von Arnim on the list. Has anyone else read the real Elizabeth von Arnim's books? That's 'Love', 'The Enchanted April', 'Mr Skeffington', 'Elizabeth and her German Garden' to name a few. They're good and I think she was writing around the same time as EBD- well, she'd have needed to, as there was a film of Skeffington made in the 1940s- so it's quite possible that EBD either knew of the author or had read her books.

That's very strange Lisa because I just read this thread for the first time and I was just about to post saying the exact same thing - that I don't seem to have heard of about half the characters! I was absolutely horrified.  :(

I've discovered someone who isn't in the A-Z!  Here name is Jennifer Yarnold, and she appears in the same form as Evelyn Ross in Challenge

I believe there are several accidental omissions and well done for finding one! :D

Shall we open a thread for A-Z mistakes and omissions, my favourite one is them having Bernhilda down as Head Girl!

Sounds like fun! Do you want to start it?

Post by Nel on Dec 6th, 2003, 1:34pm
Right.  Well.  I know I mentioned a long time ago that I was trying to put together a character cross-reference.  It's more or less done now.

Enormous props to Ally for the character list in this thread, which is what I've based much of mine on, and to Lorraine for the info on her website which helped to fill in some blanks.  There are more girls than appear in the A-Z list (plus the boys who attended the school!), but I'm sure I've missed people.

Basically, the list is an excel spreadsheet listing:
  • first name,
  • last name,
  • nickname,
  • posts held (prefectships and form prefectships, mainly),
  • positions held as a mistress,
  • schools attended (ie Chalet, St Scholastika's, Tanswick, St Mildred's, St Hilda's)
  • book the character first appeared in,
  • forms of the character in different books,
  • ages of the character in various books,
  • the number of the book they first appeared in (so they can be sorted chronologically),
  • and a column for "other interesting details / what became of them" type information.


It's a long way from being complete in terms of the "what happened next" and "forms" columns -- I think that'll be a work in progress.

There are thirty-odd girls for whom I haven't been able to find a "first book", or any book at all!  But I've only got transcripts of about half the books, so doing text searches for all hasn't been fruitful.

I know there are also big gaps are far as the Staff are concerned -- filling those is the next "big" project, and I think KB's done some work that will be incredibly useful.

I honestly don't know what possessed me to start it, and I doubt it'll ever be really finished.  But if anyone'd like a copy -- and especially if they feel like filling in any blanks off the tops of their heads -- they're more than welcome to it.  I've found it most useful in being able to sort through and find exactly the right girl based on my memory of her, but fanfic writers may find it useful, especially in terms of filling in minor characters of a certain age.

I'd be especially happy to swop it for a transcript of Exile, if anyone has a spare they can email to me.  Apparently I'm not content with the four print copies of the book I already own.
