Great Name

I noticed this the other day during a run through St. Cecilia’s:

Napoleon J. Butterfield
Massachusetts
Wagoner, 102 Inf.
26 Div
February 21, 1933

 

Nobody ever picks cool names for their kids anymore. (And teaches them to drive wagons. I hate the 21st century!) Convenez-vous?

    I did a long and cranky post a while back about children’s names that… ah… I would not choose myself. Aside from the few hipsters out there who have discovered names that went out of popularity 100 years ago, I’m with you!
