So people who live in/grew up in and moved away from/have been to New Orleans, can you give me just a few popular adult first names you remember? Cajun and Creole names are more than welcome, too.
1. Can you think of any good books to read that could help me get a feel for NO's history? Can you think of books that would help elucidate NO's 'personality'-- fiction or non-fiction are equally okay.
Hell, (accurate!!) movies, too. I just want to get myself a feel for this city.
2. I know New Orleans has its own brand of voodoo (hoodoo/New Orleans VooDoo), but is Santeria (which, yes, is remarkably similar to 'real' Voudoun, but it's NOT THE SAME) common there?
3. Would you be shocked out of your pants to find demonologists, or Roman Catholic angelologists?
