Not at all nani.   Smiley   I was perplexed by the name too.  Who would have guessed the implications the name had.  It was a name that had signficance that would have been not understandable to me either.  It just dawned on me now from when I came across it months ago reading about the origins of English.  It's like 14th century stuff or something.  
  I thought it was a weird name too when you brought it up.  I just thought there had to be some reason for it, it is hard to find.  Thanks for noting your curiousity toward it.

Being the name is very old, the attributes currently associated with the spelling of it seem to lend a different impression from the appropriateness of its similarities with the CH afflicted.  

I know that you believe what you think you said, but I'm not sure that you realize what I heard is not what you meant.
 
Do you have a 25 words or less model, with no allegories?

I guess the story is allegorical, so I can't get away from that, but...
 
Would you name your kid Sisyphus?
 
However,
 
The literary significance of the name is very similar to:
 
Quote:
Sisyphus found hope where many would find despair

 
and to:
Quote:
hand off our knowledge to those who have fallen.

as it applies to CH, hand off our knowledge to those who are, well instead of fallen, in our case suffering from rolling their rock up the hill.
 
Like I know what I'm saying.  Roll Eyes  Grin   .
 
My best guess, I guess.  I'm 0 for 8 on Jonny's "WTF is it" threads.

My bad.
 
Camus is a French novelist,  I mixed him up with Chaucer.  It's probably from the 20th century.  It was an allegory from a physics book, not a literary one.  I read the two back to back and it got fuzzy.  
 
 
I'd do best to just ask him.  Embarassed

Just to avoid confusion, my name is Joe, and I live in a city called Pittsburgh.
 
I sure hope y'all weren't losing sleep over that one.

The Myth of Sisyphus  
 
   The story of Sisyphus was originally a Greek myth. He was the king of Corinth. Albert Camus wrote an essay on the myth sometime in the early 1950s.
 
   All the best Filbert.
 
 Actually it took me six months to work out what 49erfan stood for. I thought it was a lucky number Roll Eyes
