books + babies

  • About the author EB

This morning’s Shelf Awareness brings the news that Audrey and Kevin DeKam of Oregon have welcomed a new baby boy into their family: Powell Finley DeKam, named after the famed Powell’s bookstore. They’ve gotten only positive responses so far, perhaps because a) Powell’s is a beloved institution and b) Powell is an actual name. I don’t think it would work quite as well if I named my child Word or Spoonbill & Sugartown, though Jackson for McNally Jackson might work if only I didn’t already have a cat named Jack. Would this work for your favorite bookstore?
