Names in Alaska

I recently met a lady at the gym. We exchanged names...hers being Eva Louise.  I commented that my daughter had the same name and had been named for her grandmother.  The other Eva announced that she was named after a tugboat. At my raised eyebrows, she explained that the tugboat delivered her mother to the hospital for delivery in Ketchikan. This is just another example of differences when you live so far away.

The other Eva's story is funnier.
