These popular names of the fingers seem to be of considerable antiquity. The following curious lines are quoted by Mr. Halliwell (Dict of Arch. Words) from a MS. of the fifteenth century in the University Library, . Cambridge (Ft. v. 48, fol. 833): Ilke a fyngir has a name, als men thaire fyngers

A Nominale in MS. Reg 17, C. XVII.,
fol. 39, 10, gives the following list, very
similar to that in our text:

Hic pollex, Ae thowmo.
Hic index, Ae lic-pote.
Hic medius, Ae lang-fynger.
Hic medicus, Ae leche

calle. The lest fyngir hat lit yl- man, for bit is lest

of alle ; The next fynger hat leche-man, for quen a

leche dos ogt, With that fynger he tastes all thyng how that

hit is wrogt; Long-man hat the mydilmast, for longest

fynger bit is; The ferthe men calls to wcher, therwith men

touches i-wis ; The fifto fynger is the thow mbe, and hit has

most mygt, And fastest haldes of alle the tother, forthi men

calles hit rigt.

Hic auricularis, Ae lytyl-fynger. Mr. Halliwell has printed a modern nursery rhyme, (Nursery Rhymes of England, fifth edition, p. 155), in which dames very similar to these are still used, namely, thumbkin, foreman, longman, ringman, and littleman. In Norfolk the fingers are called popularly, Tom - thumbkin, Willwilkin, Long-gracious, Betty bodkin, Littletit.
