    Old school names you dont hear anymore.

    So I named my bike Rex T. Dubber. Darth pointed out that Rex was a cool old name you just don't hear anymore, so I thought it might be fun to toss a few out there. When is the last time you heard about someone naming their baby Laurence, Leonard, (not Leonardo), Clarence, Dwight, Gordon, Arliss, or Hortence? And for the ladies, Esther, Ethyl, Clarinda, Inez, Doreen, Agatha, Jezebel, Bessie, or Norma. Popular names from the 20's & 30's in Iowa and Idaho where my grandparents come from.
    Anyway, thanks for playing.

    "Clarence" was my Grand Dad's name and my Dad's.
    I've never heard it since.

    My Grand Mother's name was Verna, my great Aunt Exa. Another Great Aunt was Peaty. Another was Myrtle. And Her friend's name was Versy. Kawasaki named a bike after her, many years later.
    My buddy's Jr. High Principal was "Walley Quattlebaum". Really
    I was 10 before I learned my name was not "Stop That!" My high school girlfriend re-named me that a few years later...

    Ruth is an old name that you don’t hear much. My son names his daughter Hazel and it took me a while to get use to it. All I remembered was Hazel the TV show from 1961-1966.


    I love the name Hazel now. Hazel is standing between the boys.

    My mother was Gertrude, Gert or Trudy for short. I never named any of my TWs because Yamaha already had them named, 87, 88, 91, 06, 09, 13 and I never had 2 in the same year except the 06 TW and XT225.

    I did have one, a 1987 that gave me nothing but trouble and I would have named it Barrack or BHO.

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Hortence and Clarinda could go extinct and the world would probably be better off. Those are two seriously awful sounding names.
