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.
