Our friend, Mostly Cajun, regularly posts birth announcements from his local newspaper, which include the name chosen by the parent(s) for the newborn. The names never cease to amaze me, and invariably cause me to wonder whether some people should procreate.
As a special treat, he has assembled some of the gems from the past year and invites his readers to vote for the Name of the Year.
Here are but a few samples:
Toi T’Anthony E’Quan
La’nah Hoklue’ a Lauree
Ja’Myah Ja’Nae Sh’Nyiah Shante
As you can see, apostrophes are quite hot this year.
Go check them all out and cast your vote.
