the Johnny Cash song, "A Boy Named Sue."
Slightly different, but try being named after a goddess of death, war and destruction. It's always fun explaining that one. Especially on the radio or tv...
My Uncle Fred used to tell the story of a very rich, very prominent family from Arkansas or Texas surnamed Hogg. I've since learned that Hogg is in fact a legitimate last name in the U.S. and in Britain. I think I half doubted it when I was a child.
But Fred said, of this rich family, that they named their daughter "Ima."
I really didn't believe it and thought it was a joke, but as an adult I realized that that sort of cruel behavior on the part of parents does exist. Reference: the Johnny Cash song, "A Boy Named Sue."
I eventually looked up "Ima Hogg," and she was a real person. Lived in Texas.
"Ronald McDonald is doing the funeral."
Thank you! She's not, as far as I am aware, but I was once assured that in Cornish it means "song of the sea". I didn't like to disillusion the self-avowed "Cornish language expert" that he had it the wrong way around...
