Mennonite Names At the Movies

Mennonite Names at the Movies is a game our friend Jim taught us. When a movie is over, you carefully watch the credits roll, and look for at least one Mennonite name. For those of you who read this blog and aren’t Mennonites- there are very typical Mennonite names and when you see them or hear them you just know they are Mennonite.

My husband and I often play the Mennonite name game after we’ve watched a movie and we have also found a Mennonite name every time. If you are watching a movie with friends you can even have a little contest to see who can spot the Mennonite name first. There is even a Wikipedia page about Mennonite names. Check it out.
