The only name that could possibly be more Illinois than “Roland Burris” is “Orion Samuelson.” (pronounced, for those of you not from Illinois as Or-eee-on, not O-rye-en.)
Edited to add: I wonder if you could make a general rule about good Midwestern names–like one part vaguely literary or historical figure, one part seed brand, and one part Scandinavian/Polish. Like, my name almost works because I’ve got the whole “Flag-maker” first name, the Scandinavian middle name, and a brand of gas for the last. But, if I were really going to be midwestern, I would for sure change my last name to Burris. Or Yoder. Which I guess is neither Scandinavian or Polish. But I like saying it. Yoder, Yoder, Yoder, Yoder.
Yep, you’re for sure in the midwest when the Yoders are bringing you sweet corn.
