Name o' the Day

Candy Lovin Welborn,

grandmother of historian Glenda Gilmore. Gilmore's much-read book, Gender and Jim Crow, is dedicated to Candy's memory.

I love the balance of whimsy and dignity in this name. You can't get much cuter than "Candy Lovin," but the "Welborn" reminds you to mind your manners.
