The Name of the Day...

...belongs to Bettye Caldwell, who was instrumental in the founding of Head Start.

I know "Betty" is short for Elizabeth, but I'd never heard of the name "Bettye." Would that extra "e" at the end cause any confusion?

"My name is Bettye, with an 'e'?"

"Yeah, I know how to spell Betty. Waddaya think, I'm a moron or somethin'?"

"No, I mean an extra 'e'."

"Oh, you mean B-E-T-T-E-Y?"

"No, B-E-T-T-Y-E."


"Never mind."
