If you clicked on this page, you must be wondering what in the heck’s up with the name?! Atchafalayaya, pronounced at-cha-fah-lah-yah-yah, is a combination of the name of a river that runs through Mississippi – the Atchafalaya – and the word “ya-ya” which is a term for the things that ail you or are on your mind.
I was raised in the south and spent a lot of time in New Orleans, so these things just seem to seep into your skin somehow and never let go, just like the city itself. Thus Atchafalayaya was born. ❥
