Names

I've had some interesting student names in the past:

Ulysses

Ezekial

Refugio

and certainly a large number of Jesuses (but that comes with the territory)

I also get the "typical" "odd" names like Lavita, Laquanda, Benessa, Tamika, Tenisha, Chanell, Bettina, and even Griselda, etc. pretty frequently.

But this semester I have a Shennandoah as well, and I think that's pretty damn awesome!

I had a student who's name I couldn't even begin to guess how to pronounce. It was something like **Snaige**... seriously. And the first name was also made-up sounding - Jogi.

Oh, and dear Jogi,

I have no idea if you were a boy or a girl, but I think your name is beautiful and I'm sorry we didn't get the chance to formally settle upon how it is that I should call you (In class that is).
