What Is In A Name?

Belleplain Recreational State Park

Two large, white cedar trees frame Lake Nummy (named after a Native American chief). Funny name, huh? When we were very young, my brother, sister and I would call one another a nummy (short for numbskull/numskull) when we did something stupid or klutzy. Pretty mild compared to the name calling today!

  1. I spend a lot of time explaining the correct pronunciation of my name…I often wonder what was my mother thinking? I do like my name and it is a conversation starter. But what’s in a name? Letters! ;p)

  2. Nummy sounds like a name my sister would’ve tabbed me with. Of course, she probably would’ve added a few four lettered ornaments to it. She’s always been a multi-tasker.
