I knew about half of these but it's great to learn some interesting new ones. "Barm" was the most surprising, I'd say. I thought it was just called the "Head". Wonderful, thanks for sharing.

Steve Tingle, I've heard a similar origin for Mondegreen. From 'laid him on the green' in the ballad, "The Bonny Earl of Murray."
