A stub on the naturalization of mixed case

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I'm writing something at the moment about why I don't capitalize my name. More on that little project soon. For the time being, a bit that I don't think will make it to the final version, but which I like enough to at least post here.

It's fascinating the way we naturalize mixed case names. Of all the government-issued ID I own, not a single piece shows my name in mixed case. All of those pieces of identification render my name all upper case. Based on the official registration of my name, there's a stronger case to be made for my name being GINGER COONS than Ginger Coons. Initial capitals are just a matter of convention.
