Unusual Southern Names from the U.S. Deep South

_____________________________________________


The Deep South shares many beautiful names with other parts of the USA; most of our babies now have the same names as babes in other parts of the USA (Hannah, Claire, Lauren, Austin, Hunter, Matthew, for example). But included in the list below are only the more unusual names odd names that might be considered Southern. Most of these would be described as "old timey" names.

Of course, in a category all their own are those names that can't be mistaken for anything but Southern: Tallulah, Savannah, Charlotte, Magnolia, Georgia, Scarlett, Virginia, Caroline. These are not on the list, but we're always happy to share them with folks in other parts of the world.

Check our USADS pages for typically Dixie-ish double names and nicknames. Most of the names below were spotted in the obits of various Southern newspapers. Have fun!

BUT WAIT! We've started TWO brand new pages of Southern names.
