The word moxie is not often used anymore, or at least I don’t hear it much.

I’m not sure if Deborah and Tom Plant of Punta Gorda Isles looked up the meaning of the word before naming their new family member Moxy.

Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines moxie as energy, pep, courage, determination, know-how and expertise.
