Puritan Name Award

Today's Puritan Name Award goes to

Dr. Cotton Tufts

of Weymouth, Massachusetts.

Although Dr. Tufts (1734-1815) was born in the 18th century, his name made me giggle, so he merits an honorable mention. I know you New Englanders want to honor the great men of your regional history, but if your last name is "Tufts," don't you think you'd stay away from "Cotton"?
