    My friends father-in-law died a week ago and on Thursday I did the funeral. It was my first military funeral and my first time being in the veterans cemetery.

    OMG! Tranny!?!? I think that's topped the worst list for me.

    From the boys, there aren't many I like, but, Clyotis, Hyman, Orange, Indian, Curlee, Pringle, Eural, Atomic, Hannibal, and Gaylord certainly made me chuckle, haha. I do like Valentine a lot though.

    As for the girls, Louiana is the only one I like. However, Bama, Nannie, Lesonia, Areola and Tranny were also fun to giggle at. I wonder if sexual references were not strong when these people were born, because now, I'm fairly certain a little Clyotis, Hyman, Eural, Gaylord, Lesonia, Areola and Tranny would be mocked.
    I've been staring at the hotel ceiling,
    Drinking everything I've found this evening,
    Trying to hold on to the sweetest feeling,
    So I'll never let you go, don't you leave me lonely.

    See, I thought that too, but then I thought, just because they're veterans doesn't mean they were old. They could be 25 for all I know. :/

    And see, Hymen is the name of a Greek god of marriage ceremonies, inspiring feasts and songs, so at least it's got some history >_>

    How was your first military funeral? Any interesting parts of the ceremony you'd like to share with your Berry friends?

    There's something about these names that appeal to me.

    Quinon - a little like Quinton without the "t" or a male take on Quinoa
    Garnett - a family male name for me
    Woodrow - this is geeky but in a friendly way
    Oslo - an unusal place name
    Noble - one of my favourite word names
    Anastacio - Hispanic
    Theodis - sounds mythological
    Hozia - Perhaps a misspelling of the Biblical Hosea?
    Elihu - an underused Biblical name
    Hill - if Meadow is a name, why not Hill?
    Orlander -an interesting take of Alexander and Lysander
    Valentine - better in the middle spot
    Thurlo - Thurlow is a surname
    Pharoah - cool if it was spelled properly
    Golden - interesting
    Cornelious -- see Pharoah
    Orestus - Orestes would be better
    Romeo - I always wonder if a man named Romeo lived up to his name?
    Pringle - perhaps a family name. Reminds me of tingle, jingle and Kris Kringle!
    Merlin - King Arthur would be proud!

    Girls:

    Marthadelle - unusual
    Jeweldean - very Southern
    Florida - A variant of Florentia/Florence
    Talmadge - maybe a family name
    Kateri - a lovely Native American saint name
    Ligia - an underused Greek name
    Memory - better in the middle spot
    Jewel - I wonder what was up with all the Jewels in the cemetery?
    All the best,
    Mischa.
