| CORABANDE (Hamblen). Mrs. Hamblen says she "dreamed up" the name after learning her first choice was not available. She had thought of it as a three-syllable word, but noting the proneness of people to add a syllable, as though the name were spelled Corabandy, she has accepted that pronunciation.
