What’s in a name?

Funny you should ask.

Just about everything.

One’s history.

One’s ancestry.

One’s creativity:

Copper Penny.

Cherry Wood.

Or sense of humor:

Muddy Waters.

Rip Torn.

Perhaps nobility reigns.

Von this.

Van that.

Or one’s trade.

Cooper.

Potter.

Farmer.

Miller.

Even funnier is what’s in a nickname.

Pinky.

Shorty.

Peanut.

Fish.

Tiny.

Red.

Chili.

Boss.

Anyway.

Names for animals are just as fun.

And endearing.

Poppy.

Olive.

Buster.

Holly.

Kiko.

Dozer.

Big.

Biscuit.

Tux, the cat.

Pete, the horse.

Rudy.

Rooster.

Daisy.

Elvis.

Emma.

Sissy.

Frieda.

And, of course…

Old Yeller.

That’s Mason.
