83. Yes, As In

83. Yes, As In

By Helen Zaltzman

The Allusionist

Sunday, 26 August

“Really? As in the animal/foodstuff/music genre?”
“Is that a stripper name?”
“What were your parents thinking?”

When your name is a word that is more usually a noun or adjective than a human moniker, you hear the same questions a lot. But there’s a story in every name, and yours is probably a more interesting story than most.
