Adeline, Maybe in England, but in Scotland you took your fathers name and prefixed it with Mac/Mc, Scandinavians did similar but used the name with son on the end and Icelandic females take the moms name and add dottir to the end.

#1 They bathed more frequently, but they most certainly did not "bathe daily." Later, it was believed that water carried disease, and that bathing opened the pores, making you more susceptible to those diseases.
Protestants added the notion that removing the clothes to do so was immodest, and an affront to "god." Associating all of this with prostitution made it easier to convince people that bathing was bad.
Incidentally, they believed that changing you linen (specifically linen) underclothing was what kept you clean. The whiter the linen, the cleaner the person.

#14 Still true in Central America. Ever seen those boots with the long curled up toes? Look it up. It's extremely comical.

Flossy,

Just tap your foot and kill a roach in a room corner from two meters away.
