  1. Harriett Cheryl says:

    I am a female junior named after the best man I ever knew, my dad Henry (Harry) Charles.
    He called me tootsie or Hallie. So I guess it’s whatever floats your boat. With the stupid names of today, I am proud to have been named after my Daddy. Nope. He had no boys.
