RE: I don’t believe “Ima Hoare” would ever “embrace” her name.
I heard that she changed her name to “Ura”. :)
She might want to disown her parent’s family name as well.
Hey, if Cassius Clay can change his name to Muhammad Ali, Lew Alcindor to Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Ron Artest to Meta World Peace, I’m sure Ms. Hoare can change her family name to “Saint”, or “Hero”.
Or change her name to “Mary Jane Andrews” or something equally bland.
“Ima Hogg (July 10, 1882 August 19, 1975), known as “The First Lady of Texas”, was an American philanthropist, patron and collector of the arts, and one of the most respected women in Texas during the 20th century”
Actually, they were sisters, named Ima Hogg and Ura Hogg. And they kept those names.
