A couple months after I started this thread, my landlord and sometimes housemate Clifton moved back into this house, along with his Vietnamese wife and their baby girl, Kimberly. Since Clifton’s family name is Buck and his wife’s family name is Tieu, I call Kimberly KimBuckTieu (rhymes with Timbuktu). Another serendipitous coincidence: Timbuktu is, of course, in the Sahara Desert. KimBuckTieu’s mommy goes by her nickname, Sahara, so KimBuckTieru was also in Sahara!
