Subject: RE: Weird last names
Ima Hogg (daughter of an early Texas governor). No kidding. Know affectionately as Miss Ima. Contrary to legend, she did not have a sister named Ura.


I had a great-great-something grandmother named Mrs. Grace. First name Grace. They called her "Gracie".

I also had an Uncle Bigelow who married a woman with a "normal" name who happened to be very short, thus they were Uncle Big and Aunt Tiny.


Had a client once named Cinnamon Barley. I thought it was the dog's name but one of the other vet techs knew her personally (as a friend) and it turns out, it was the owner's name.


And a Dr. Eaton runs a weight-loss clinic up the road from my house.
