Louisiana names

Last night at Hixson brothers funeral home in Marksville, LA, I met two sons of a friend of my grandmother's at her wake.
Dick worked for and with my grandmother and with me for many decades, and these were two of his adult sons.

What's in a name

The older son introduced himself as June and his younger brother as Fabian "The Baby."

Me:  "So June, How did your parents select the name "June" for you?"

He replied:  "Well, I'm Dick Junior.  So June is for Junior."

Me:  "Okay, makes sense now!"

Me:  Feeling somewhat silly....going to the funeral now.

Where Marksville is.
