This Woman Is Named Happy Thanksgiving

“Happy Thanksgiving!”

“Yes, what? I’m here.”

This may be a confusing time of year for one woman in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her name is literally “Happy Thanksgiving.” Specifically, she’s Dr. Happy Thanksgiving Reynolds.

Her parents were, Dr. Reynolds explains, “hippies.” They didn’t have a baby name planned for her because they believed that the circumstances of her birth would reveal the universe’s intentions for her name. She was born on Thanksgiving Day in 1970, so they named her Happy Thanksgiving.

Dr. Reynolds isn’t shy about her name, but uses it openly. She says that it has landed her job interviews that might otherwise have missed.
