This is a modified word search where the words can zig-zag in any direction without reusing a square in that specific name. The 14 children names are the word bank.
Euxistratus can be found by starting at the E in the upper left corner then moving S, SE, SE, E, S, E, S, E, E, SE. Some names can have minor variations in letter selections and still spell the name, don't worry as the solution will still come out correctly regardless of which selection of squares you choose. (as long as you don't reuse a square in any name as the rules stipulate)
After finding all 14 names, you will have 11 unused squares which when read in order spells ALTERNATIVE.
