    Age 2

    "During a deadly heat wave, thousands of residents were at the seaside resorts of Jersey Shore. Between July 1 and July 2 of 1916, five different people were attacked by sharks, and four of them ultimately died. Scientific knowledge about sharks was limited at this time, so these tragic incidents started a wave of ""shark panic"" that was spread by telephone calls, letters, newspapers, and other media."

    Name Meaning

    From an Old French personal name of Germanic (Frankish) origin, derived from wald ‘rule’ + heri, hari ‘army’. This was adopted by the Normans and introduced by them to England, superseding the native Old English form, Wealdhere. It was a very popular name in medieval England, normally pronounced ‘Water’.
