What's In a Name Part I.

What's In a Name Part I.

My PICAW (Partner In Crime At Work) and myself found ourselves bored at work when we were covering the phones.
I randomly searched for unique names in our patron database and was quite surprised what names (first and middle) popped up. So what started out as a way to pass the time turned into a competitive game.

Our list became quite extensive and we have tried to keep it organized, somewhat...

States:

    Florida
    Georgia
    Illinois
    Indiana
    Louisiana
    Maine
    Maryland
    Montana
    Nevada
    Virginia
    Washington

We found out that our library system has its own "United Nations" of patrons' names when it came to countries along with some other cities.
