    Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Tatanka was the Lakota word for 'buffalo'.

    Yes, Tatanka is the Lakota Sioux word for 'big buffalo' or just 'buffalo'!
    This was in South Dakota, I guess the mom liked it with an O better!

    Just last week, we had a mom name her baby Le-a'. She said the dash was not silent. She pronounced it Ledasha. Some people can be so stupid! A couple of years ago, I had a patient name her baby boy "MonkeyviRus".

    Saw one on the census for our stepdown unit Da'Ron. I can't imagine the teasing that poor guy has endured.

    I wonder if our unit secretary reads this thread. The other day we had a conversation where she said that she knew a child named Le-a pronounced Ledasha. She also personally knows kids named Shithead, Orangello, Abcde and Nosmo King. Gotta wonder where she hangs out!lol2:
