I have a cute post about our family names and the story behind them coming up….but it’s 11pm and I’m really tired and heading to bed. I’ll post tomorrow!

In the meantime – remember this game we used to sing as kids? My Gramma used to sing this to us all the time!!

Sarah, Sarah, Bo-Barah

Banana-fana Fo-Farah



Of course, I found the information on Wikipedia to help you come up with your own Name Game Song!

A verse can be created for any name, with X as the name and (X−1) as the name without the first consonant sound, as follows:

(X), (X), bo-b(X−1)
Banana-fana fo-f(X−1)

Sure wish I could sing it like Shirley Ellis does though! Now wouldn’t THIS be fun for Karaoke Night??

(Isn’t EVERYTHING on YouTube?!?!  This is really cool!)

So, how does YOUR name game song go??
