"We named our son Powell. Powell is his
great-grandmother's maiden name. She was the 9th of 9 children who were named alphabetically. "Greatmama" as we called her was Q.R. - you'll have to guess what the initials stand for. His middle name is his father's mother's maiden name, so he has three last names. In the south, we like family names! When he was young, our son didn't like his name but now does. It is unique but not odd, however, it is often mispronounced and not understood." Sep. 3, 2008:
