Etouffee - In French it means Choke or Smother. In Cajun French it is a type of food and it is usually smothered in sauce. Although that's all well and good, for me is my dogs name. When we lived in Dallas my wife and I got a dog, not long after we met but before we were married. Because my wife is from South Louisiana many of the people we knew chimed in with Cajun names for the dog and Etouffee stuck. Back in 96 when I first starting getting on line I needed a name so I borrowed his. To this day I have never had a problem signing into a forum or a game using that name. Etouffee made 2 moves with us, From Dallas to Houston in 94 and from Houston to New Iberia in 2002. Etouffee lived 17 years and was a very loving and loyal dog and we miss him very much but his name will live with my on the Internet until I pass away It is his photo I am using.
