Ival Is My Name

I have a funny name;
My name is Ival.

 You can call me John
And I will answer;

But I maintain I’m really Ival,
That’s the truth.

I’m not the only Ival –
There’s my son, my Dad;

My Grandpa had this name,
A slew of cousins,

And even quite a few
I’m not related to.

I say that it’s a Scottish name,
But sooth to tell

I can’t prove a thing about it
Except it’s mine as well.
