Thread Name: BS: British vs. American names
Subject: RE: BS: British vs. American names
When I started my stint with a daily newspaper (back in the dark ages) on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border, I wrote obituaties. I loved all the different names, especially those "real American" names from Oklahoma such as Mankiller, Mantooth, Bushy Head, Cut Nose, etc. But one of my most favorites was from a tiny, remote town in southwestern Arkansas. Pibitha Leftwich. Kinda rolls off the tongue doesn't it?
