Some names we think are reserved for women – Karen, Shirley, Carol, and others – but these names are sometimes given to boys, too. This happened to one boy, born in Nebraska and named for a minister. The business he founded is known today as one of the very best in the world. He was a boy named Joyce, named for a Methodist Episcopal bishop who had visited David City, Nebraska, on the day the boy was born. The bishop’s last name became the boy’s first name.
