    I have known men and women named Jordan. I always thought of it as a man’s name.

    I have known men named Marion and Carroll, lots of Leslies. One named LaVerne. Not to mention ethnic names. One old dude named DeLos Quist. Worked at the local bank. One day Jack Bates walked in with his son, DeLos said "Here come Mr Bates and Master Bates".

    Remember the TV Show Night Court? Judge Harry Stone was played by Harry Laverne Anderson- yep, that was his birth name. Rest in peace, your honor.

    I always thought it unusual to give a girl a surname as a first name. Harper, Jefferson, Franklin. I even met one cute young attorney named Rasmussin ******:rolleyes:.

    My late cousin, Earl, was something in local government here in UK in his working career. As a result of his efforts to improve the way things were in his particular field of interest, which was, basically, people, he was awarded the Order of the British empire, or O.B.E for short.

    We always knew him thereafter as cousin Earlobe.
