I have never been in a place like this for old-fashioned, and sometimes simply unique, first names. I am entranced at the creative streak parents have shown in dubbing their children. I'm sure some of the variety is created by the relatively high number of immigrants here in the BVI. I have taken to writing down first names I find interesting or unusual, and now present my compilation to you here.
I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite, although McWellington would definitely be up there. I appreciate how Walwyn, who is currently campaigning for political office, is using the obvious pun in his name. His slogan: "With Walwyn, we all win". With the exceptions of Elmore and Darwin, I don't believe I'd ever heard any of these names before. I appreciate the name diversity the BVI has introduced me to.
