This is actually a name from a really old book “The Five Little Peppers and How they Grew” – But yes, a really stupid name.

It’s not a stupid name at all. It was known and used outside the book during the era of the book. Decades later, the book inspired my uncle to insist that my aunt be named Phronsie. I was often accidentally called Phronsie by family who had not seen us in a long time (I resembled my aunt) I always felt it was my name. It’s not a stupid name at all. Are there stupid names to give a kid? Yes. But this is not one of them. It’s a name of a bygone era, old fashioned and sweet.

Now I think Chyenne, Dakota and Doorknob are all equally stupid names. But I do like the name Phronsie. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
