bilby commented on the word babbittry
Funny about the caps, seems an accident of history as to whether they stick or not. I'm happy with both Dickensian stereotypes and macadamised roads yet both are derived from proper names.

probably should be capitalized: Babbittry - comes from the eponymous hero of Sinclair Lewis's 1922 novel Babbitt - a conventional, conformist businessman.
