Let's have some chuckles! Periodically, my kids and I come up with funny names which sends me into peals of laughter.
I guess the ones I remember most are those from the American Indians. As I mentioned in a former post, I stayed at Chincoteaque Island. I saw that Susan mentioned the Tallahatchie that had to be from the same source. And, how about Tallahasse? There's Mannahawkin, N.J. & Forked River. Forked is 2 syables.
At one time, we lived in Houston County in Georgia but it was pronounced
"House-ton". I went to school with a girl with the last name of Buggy but it was pointed out to me that it was Buuggie. OMG, let's not do names...:-)! Oh, let's!
Grandpop worked with a guy by the name of Sugarbread and we had neighbors whose name was Rowbottom - either English or Indian, wouldn't you say? Isn't this the time, Bill brings up Orangejello & Lemonjello pronounced very different than spelled. And, Dad worked with a Glasscock, a Woodcock & a John Moneypenny. So, put your funny thinking caps on laugh a little!
