I bet a lot of you do not even know this...but telephone numbers used to have names! How cool, huh?
I remember my great-grandmother, Isabel (yep, I was named after her!), telling people her phone number was PRescott 6.... The PR was for 77. I actually forget the rest of her phone number, probably because it didn't have a grand name like Prescott 6.
You can read more about this at The Telephone EXchange Project. You can even plug in your current number and get yourself a handy dandy name for your number, then you'll be the envy of all your friends!
