Double Names from the U.S. Deep South


"Southern names are so beautiful," wrote a USADEEPSOUTH reader to editor, Beth Jacks. This comment set Jacks to "collecting."

Southerners have long been noted for their use of double names and family names. Presently, there appears to be a trend toward using a time-honored, classic name for girls like "Mary" or "Anna" or "Jane," combining that name with a family name.

For example, if you have a beloved brother or father or friend named "Michael," you might name your baby girl "Mary Michael," calling her by both names. Or perhaps there's a pretty family name like "Scott" or "Crawford" or "Hardy" that you could use, e.g. "Anna Scott," "Mary Crawford," or "Jane Hardy."

This type of double name gives your daughter a unique but traditional sounding name; the child is not likely to have another "Mary Crawford" in her kindergarten class.

A similar naming style may be used with boys, linking classic names like "John" or "Joe" or "Lloyd," as in "John Baxter," "Joe Abbott," or "Lloyd Eades." The possibilities are endless -- and the names are both beautiful and special.

Many double names are included in the following list that Ye Editor compiled during the past few months. Got any to add? Please write us at YE EDITOR'S ADDRESS.

We'll continue to add to this list. Check back often, y'hear?
