Names from the South?

[name]Just[/name] wondering if anyone here have any names that you associate particularly with the southern states of the US?

Some names that I associate with the South is such names as [name]Memphis[/name] & [name]Tennessee[/name], which are both quite obvious, but I love them. Then I also have [name]Harley[/name], [name]Flynn[/name] (even though I know it is Irish) and [name]Ray[/name].

Would be really nice to hear if you have any suggestions! :smiley:

Interesting topic… Let’s see…Names I associate with the South. Are you looking for boys’ names, girls’ names, or both?

[name]Dinah[/name] (not a good association)
[name]Jemima[/name] (although, this association is a negative one…)

[name]Cletus[/name] (not a good thing…)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Names from the South:

[name]Billy[/name] [name]Bob[/name] and other combos of names like that
