You guys are amazing. We're just short of a hundred, with the ones below. A couple of rulings, though:

1. OK, Dumpling and Pumpkin aren't really given names. So they go in a newly created subcategory, nickname lights.

2. I'm not really sure about BRENTon Reef, BRANDYwine Shoal, TYbee Island. Provisionally accepted, unless protests are lodged. I'll take Savannah.

3. There have been a couple of duplicates, awarded to the earliest poster (yes, I'm counting. I'll call an end and do a tally either when this tapers off or at month's end).

4. Couple of obvious ones still out there. C'mon, Floridians. And Brent, you've been roaming the world but there's a non-US letter D a lot closer to home.

OK, here's my obvious double-hit, one from my New York State shore and one I was reminded of by Brent's Wolfe Island and another Buffalo-area journalist who has his own show now on CNN:

Ida Lewis Light RI
Cape Vincent NY
Wolf Trap VA
