NPR names

Apparently, to broadcast on NPR, you need to have an NPR name.  When I quoted some NPR names to my son, he laughed.

“You’re making that up.  No one is named Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson.”

Yes, yes they are.  It’s the Nelson that makes that name.  Or Yuki Noguchi.  It’s melodic.  Daniel Folkenflik.  Sounds almost dirty, but not quite.  Nina Totenberg.  Death mountain.  Great name.  Barack Obama–great NPR name.  He could have had a career on NPR.

NPR names.  Euphonious.  Out of the ordinary.  Sadly, we can’t all have NPR names.

From the messy desk.
