What's In A Name Coincidence


Marguerite Brokaw, from Sarasota, was travelling by bus to visit her son. She fell into conversation with the woman in the seat next to her. They happened to remark on how easy some names were to pronounce and remember and how difficult were others.

"I wish I had an easy name. Mine is so often mispronounced and misspelled," said Mrs. Brokaw.

"That's the trouble with my name too. I'm always having to correct people on its spelling and how to pronounce it. What is your name?" she asked.

"Brokaw," answered Marguerite. "What is your name?"

"Brokaw!" answered the other woman.

They continued talking and discovered they were related by marriage and that both their fathers went to the USA from France.

It's a small world.
