I now live in Massachusetts, but I was not born here.
I have a friend whose name used to be Laura Noorda. (She has since married.) My kids know her only by this name; they were grown and gone by the time of her lovely, New Year's Eve wedding.
You would not believe how many times in a month I hear someone say to me, "Did you see Laura Noorda last night?" Except, the native speakers ("Boston" accents are commonplace on the North Shore) aren't actually asking me about Laura Noorda. I figured it out when someone said "Laura Noorda SVU."
