Thread Name: Miss Dorothy, Dorothy
Subject: RE: Miss Dorothy, Dorothy
I am not West Indian (Chinese Australian) nor a calypsonian (I want to be one, but I don't know whether foreigners/non-West Indians are allowed to become calypsonians) but it could just have been a popular woman's name which was so common that it became a standard name in songs in the same way as Nancy or Sally in British songs.
