Baileys Adventures

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine…-Proverbs 17:22

What’s In a Name? April 19, 2010

Baileys?  You mean Bailey’s, don’t you?  Or Bailey, ’cause it’s your first name, right?  How do you spell that?  Do you mean like the Irish Creme?

No.  Our name is Baileys.  Not my first name, but our surname.  It’s not pronounced bay-lees, like it looks, either.  It’s bay-liss.

So there’s no apostrophe before the s.  And only one after the s if I’m talking about something we own.  You know, like the Baileys’ house, here on the Square.

And, no, we don’t see a penny of the Bailey’s Irish Creme money….
