In Which I Am Indignant.
I'm with Dr. S on that one.
Good lord. "Jefferson" didn't tip him off to the southernness? Sigh. Sugar would have missed it, too. I can still flabergast her by listing the names of kids I went to school with. Including, yes, boys named Stacy and Lindsey (but not Ashley). Heck, my own son's first name is my Great-Grandmother's maiden name. It's been in use as a first name in the family for a while (starting with her son) and doesn't strike even northerners as odd, but point of order, it's a last name.
I like the Bean's name. I think Bentley is maybe going a little far.
Ps, my great great grandmother was grandma jeffie. Yes, her name was Jefferson. Her first name.
