Utah Baby Names (That distinctive name that says, "I'm Mormon.")
The Utah Baby Namer ^ | Wes and Cari Clark

What's In a (Utah) Name?

by Cari Bilyeu Clark

When my husband and I moved from Utah to the Washington, D.C. area seventeen years ago, we knew nothing of the inadvertent legacy we carried from our four years in Utah. Shortly after we arrived in our new home, we saw a television commercial for a local grocery store chain. The spokeswoman's name was the unusual "Odonna." "She's gotta be from Utah," I said to my husband. "That's a Utah name if I ever heard one."

We eventually learned that Odonna was, indeed, Utah born and bred.

It dawned on us that many names we'd heard during our college careers, and found only mildly remarkable, were indeed unique to the Utah Mormon culture. Thus began our quest to define what makes some names singularly Utahn, and what sets them apart from ethnic names with roots in other cultures, such as Juanita or Shoshanna; or African-American names such as Tawanda and Shaquille; or the newly common, soap-operaesque handles such as Skylar, Tiffany, Raven, and Adrienne. There's a difference, and it's not just the obviously Mormon scriptural names like Mahonri or Nephi or Moroni. Often identifying a Utah name is a gut feeling akin to Justice Potter Stewart's definition of pornography: you know it when you see it.

The quintessential Utah name often has a French-sounding prefix such as Le-, La-, Ne-, or Va-. Often names appear to have genesis in the combined names of the parents--Veradeane or GlenDora, for example. Related is the practice of feminizing the father's name--as in Vonda (dad is Vaughan) or Danetta. Others, such as Snell or Houser, appear to be surnames called into service as first names.

Related is the curious tendency, more common in Utah than elsewhere, for men (women do not seem to do this) to use the first initial, then the full middle name as the given name, such as L. Flake Roberts, who ran for office in Utah County when we lived there. (Come on, you've noticed this habit among the general authorities of the LDS church!) Besides puzzling over why someone would want to be known as "Flake," it makes one wonder just what the "L" stands for.

[Hmmmm. Where have we heard about that before? --A.J.]

So my husband and I entertained ourselves by collecting the often bizarre names we found in Utah publications (including the obituaries, which indicates that this is not a recent fad) and of Utah natives we met. We compiled a list and shared it with our friends, who often as not had a few more to add. We really hit a bonanza when one woman shared our observations with her mother, who worked at a Utah bank and had access to lots of names. She started her own list and began sending the names to us. (My personal favorite, LaNondus, came from this source.) Another friend told us of a set of sisters, all of whose names began with "Ja."

Once my husband had Internet access, he collected more names and corresponded with another couple who amused themselves the same way. They made cleverly categorized lists: "The ward choir director's daughters: LaVoice, Choral, Audia."

It makes you wonder what some parents were thinking when, for instance, they named their baby girl Lanae (la-nay)--and she unfortunately ended up with a big nose (le nez [la-nay] in French means "the nose"). Or the girl named M'Lu--are clever wags endlessly asking her to skip to it? And how the heck do people with apostrophes in their names fill out computerized forms? There's no apostrophe space. The guy I really pity, though, is the one saddled with the unfortunate moniker, Rube.

Of course, parents cannot predict what new interpretations the marketplace will bring to the names they lovingly bestow on their offspring. I once worked at a company which had dealings with a woman named LaPriel (pronounced la-prell). When I told my former roommate about this inexplicable first name, she sardonically replied, "What's her sister's name--LaTegrin?"

With the generally larger-than-average family, often saddled with the very ordinary surnames Smith, Johnson, or Young, it's not surprising that many Utah parents look for unique given names for their children. When you throw in the reverence for family and ancestors forwarded by the LDS Church, it seems inevitable that someone would end up with LaEarl, KDell, Arnolene or Hariella.

Some names, though, seem to defy description--if not pronunciation. While pride of place may have spawned Utahna, how did somebody come up with Wealtha? And while Lloydine's genesis seems plausible, how on earth were Printha or Noy coined? And I have no idea what constitutes the correct pronunciation for Kairle or Tawhnye. (I suspect they may be wildly creative spellings of Carol and Tonya.)

Perhaps the following list (by no means comprehensive) will amuse you. Perhaps it will offend you. Perhaps you will find your name, or the name of a relative, on it. Or perhaps you will be so enchanted by a particular name that you'll want to bestow it upon one of your own offspring. If that is your plan, first do this: go to the back door, fling it open and yell the name at the top of your lungs six or eight times, because that's how it's going to be heard for the next eighteen years. And remember, when little Wynante (boy or girl, you choose) grows up, you'll have to live with the consequences.

Pres. Hinckley uses the private aircraft of Jon Huntsman, CEO of Huntsman Corp. and a member of the Church.

LOL so of course you too have access to that jet as a good and faithful mormon...orrrrrrrrrrrr could it be that it is a PERK??

The income the Church derives from tithing and other sources including business holdings goes directly to operating expenses, with little wasted on frippery.

LOL "other business holdings".Purchased with your tithe and managed for FREE right? Or could it be they PAY a management team? And who is on that PAID management team?. Any family of the pope..err I mean prophet? Your church is a business and if you do not think the men at the top benefit from all this wealth and power you are foolish..

Your"full time "leaders do not eat for free ..or drive a car for free..

I think I'd worry less about Joseph's sins, and more about your own. Joseph has his reward, and will be judging YOU one day.

You'd better worry about what he has to say. After all, he's in charge of YOUR dispensation.

Be very, very, very afraid.

Not gods: PROPHETS.

Those who profess to follow Christ must follow His prophets.

Today you reject them. Had you lived in Christ's time, you would have screamed for Barrabas.

That's just a FACT.

UC one of the things that Mormons are taught to distain is a "paid clergy" What that means for most churches is far less than your church president..

The last church I attended the "preacher" was a post man and took no salary..the church before that the full time pastor had a wife and 5 daughters and a grand salary of $25,000 a year..He left a job that paid him over $100,000 to come to the ministry..he was available 24/7 to his people

Most Christian Pastors work a full time job and their wives work..they get a token salary ..(Pastor Jerry that posts here is a bi vocational pastor )

They do not have people to do work on their homes or have jets to fly on or the money to charter a plane...UC any of us can go out of our way not to look wealthy..but it is my guess that your President is not starving..does he have a full time job? Where does his income come from..or may only the wealthy aspire to be a prophet and is a position that a poor guy could never hold?

I have no problem with paying a the bible tells us a "workman is worthy of his hire"...

Most of the outlandish wealth you see (other then the charlatons) Was self generated by books or tapes ..not paid for by tithes

Sorry, you're not going to find evil where there is none. Pres. Bush flies around at YOUR expense; are you furious about that?

Pres. Hinckley doesn't even fly around at MY expense, and you're hot under the collar?

Oh, here you are; I found you:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!--Isa. 5: 20

Repent, woman, repent.

Since you have NO IDEA what you're talking about...NONE!...I think you ought to get off this schtick. You just sound mean and ugly.

ONE MINISTER of one of the Chri$tian megachurches in the Houston area makes many times the allowance Pres. Hinckley gets for living expenses.

Billy Graham and his entourage consume a hundred times more in one year than do all the LDS general authorities put together, in terms of expenses for their lavish theatrical productions they call "crusades."

You and your "Chri$tian" ilk are hypocrites of the worst stripe, and you WILL pay for it one day, if you do not repent.

Ohhhh he does not get a "salary", he gets an "allowance" what is included in the 'living allowance' ? Housing"?Utilities? Auto? (all belonging to the church and not taxable? Unlike the income of the pastor of the mega church..)..How much walking around spending money does he get? (More than the $25,000 that the pastor with the 5 kids gets?)

Bill changing the name from salary to "allowance" does not make him "unpaid clergy"....It just means that none of you REALLY know his income..or his wifes or kids that work for the church..

Billy Graham and his entourage consume a hundred times more in one year than do all the LDS general authorities put together, in terms of expenses for their lavish theatrical productions they call "crusades."

I hold no brief for Billy Graham..but much of his PERSONAL income is from books and soforth..and if we want to talk about lavish hey the temple in Salt lake ain't bad..and as far as productions go I have seen your is pot ..kettle

Hm. An officer in the U.S. military gets a living expense. Now you want THEM out on their ears as well?

Or do you think it strange that the church might reimburse someone who is using their own resources in the service of the Church?

Do you tithe? Do you claim tithing on your taxes?

Are you as foolish as you appear?

The "lavish stuff" the Church has are income CONSUMING. They are for the edification of the world--yes, even an ingrate such as yourself.

The Church donates time, resources, supplies and manpower to worthy causes the world over, including Catholic Charities and many Protestant initiatives.

Again, you're trying to impute evil where there is none. You'd best turn your attention closer to home; somewhere another Robert Tilton, Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker or Benny Hinn is ripping off thousands of people in the false name of God.

And those same Christians who look upon Benny Hinn with disdain see Joseph Smith in much the same light.

A charlatan mocking the name of the Lord. A false teacher teaching a false gospel.
