Chauvin, Who Would’a Thunk?

You’ll have to admit that it’s quite unusual when the meaning of a particular subject turns back upon itself, leaving the original definition a complete 180 from whence it began. Such is the case with the French surname, Chauvin. Who would’a thunk?

According to Tahlequah daily press, Nicholas Chauvin was a patriot in Napoleon’s army. He exuded such a fierce loyalty for Napoleon Bonaparte; his name became synonymous and even means, ‘loyal.’

 Quite a twist from the “male chauvinist pig” I recall hearing as a young man.

Just another interesting tidbit of useless information to begin your week.

May God bless you so richly that your spiritual portfolio splits and doubles two-fold.
