Mystery of an unknown name from a dream. Digging for Randall Scott Thomas or Sir Randoph Scott Thomas? Who knew?

I had a dream and a particular name stuck in my head. It was a name I had heard of or read about either recently or sometime in the past and for some reason it floated up to the top of my memory while asleep. The name was Sir Randoph Scott Thomas, and I went to Google to type in this name and came up with Randolph Scott, movie actor. Well, that did not fit. I am still searching the names to find either Sir Randall Scott Thomas or Randall Scott Thomas or Randolph Scott Thomas but so far have come up dry. Maybe it was just a dream name, one that doesn't really exist. So why did I form these names in such an order? I must investigate this.

When I Google the full name including the Sir at the first, I came up with these results:

Now I need to trace my steps of recent days to see if I can pin point where I obtained this name to the extent that it became etched into my subconscious mind while sleeping.

If I am searching for something particular, I put it inside quote marks, ie, "Sir Randolph Scott Thomas", then the search engine looks for the exact item. but I haven't been able to track anything down on it. Good luck searching.

That is interesting. I didn't realize that using quotation marks did anything for the search but I will give it a try. Hope I get lucky.

Without quote marks, the search engine will look for each individual item as well, so sir and randolph will come up too. You have to capitalize correctly too, so, Randolph, not randolph. There are a number of ways of searching using boolean terms like AND and OR that can help too. I went on a short (1 hour) course on that, years ago, for academic searching.

Thank you Meg.

There's also a Zachary Scott. And then there's Tony Randall. Great Scott!

You are being funny now. I gather that. He he.

Not completely, with the exception of the Great Scott. He was a wrestler. Sometimes in a dream we can blend things like names together and they seem right.

It would seem to be the case. I remember that Randolph county is in North Carolina. So my mind minced the words together and that is why I had that silly dream. It is relevant because earlier I was wanting to know where my father was born. I came up with a link that lead me directly to a site that deals with finding a person's roots.

Did you ever look at your old home address on Google Maps? You can even see the home, if it's still standing. In detail, sometimes.
