The Southern Family Tree

Eddie has a brother-in-law named Bubba. Last night while watching TV, an actor came on the screen and I said to Ed, "He looks like Bubba."

After another second, sort of to myself but still out loud, I said, "I never thought I'd know someone named Bubba."

And then to myself I thought, I can't believe the name 'Bubba' just came out of my mouth.

I guess that's a result of dating someone from the South.

LOL! You are so funny, girl! I know lots of Bubbas, but then I've lived most of my life in the South.

is Bubba like the southern version of bobby?

Living here in GA there seem to be a lot of Bubbas. I have heard it used as a name and also as another name for brother. Another common one down here is Beau. Being from NY these both seem strange to me, lol.

I always wondered -- is Bubba a common nickname for something or is it really a name?

I don't think I know anybody called Bubba.
