2010 Name of the Year
|March 30, 2010|
Justice Offor believed that the birth of his son was a sign of God’s power. So that’s what he named him. In Nigeria, a far more onomastically creative and tolerant society than our own, people loved the name. But in Miami, where the family emigrated, the elementary school kids weren’t quite as impressed.
Vote for Godspower or any of the other 63 names on the 2010 ballot via daily polls at the NOTY blog.
Which name will win, do you think?
UPDATE: According to his Wake Forest bio, he goes by the nickname “G.P.” and has siblings named Wisdom (brother) and Loveth (sister).
