Wilburgus doesn't google, so I removed it. Aurivillius does google, but apparently as an early-modern surname, not as a first name. Any evidence for "Aurivillius Wright"? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 22:00, 24 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)

"Wilburus" googles. --Alex1011 22:20, 24 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
OK, about 30 hits, but if you look at them they aren't too convincing.
"Wilburus Wright" gets one hit. That site looks as if someone in Poland is saving the deleted pages and images from Wikipedia. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 22:39, 24 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, I was sure 'Wilburgus' existed when I posted it. (The etymology appears to be right, anyway; the -bur is supposed to be the same as burg 'fortress'.) But I'm only finding the female name 'Wilburgis' now. As for 'Aurivillius'—apparently the name probably was in origin a surname, like Franklin. —Mucius Tever 02:07, 25 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
