Name in the News – BridgeAnne

BridgeAnne d’Avignon, a seventh-grader in California, and her grandfather have worked together to determine that Barack Obama is related to every other U.S. president (except for Martin Van Buren) through English king John “Lackland” Plantagenet (1166-1216).

I’ve seen names like Bridget-Anne before, but I don’t think I’ve ever come across a T-less version of Bridget. Then again, maybe her name wasn’t based on Bridget at all, but inspired by a bridge somewhere.

  1. The first thing I thought of was a french folk song “Sur la pont d’Avignon” which translates to “on the bridge of Avignon”

  2. BridgeAnne is whimsically named after the bridge at Avignon of “Sur Le Pont d’Avignon” fame and her mother Mary Anne.
