But one thing is for sure with everyone's name...there is a story behind how your parents picked your name. Share that story with us. Perhaps a mommy-to-be will read your story and think that is so cool that they will give their baby the same name.
What is Your Name, and what's the Story Behind Your Name? Let me be the first to share. My name now, is not my birth name. I was named Polly Anna by my mother who watched the Haley Mills movie "PollyAnna" right before I was born. That was in the 60's. Sounds like a cute name for a little girl in the 60's but try growing up with that name. I was teased relentlessly throughout my school years, and even in to high school. I was so sick of "Polly Want a Cracker" "Polly Wog" and many other cat-calls that I heard throughout my youth. When I became an adult (and a paralegal) I legally changed my name to Anna Claudia.
The story behind "Anna Claudia"... Well Anna was my middle name and it was a pretty neutral name so I changed it to my first name. "Claudia" was the first name of my great-grandmother who had such a positive influence on me as a child. We actually called her Grandma Claud, instead of Claudia. She was such a strong figure that we called her husband Grandpa Claud, poor guy didn't even have his own identitiy, lol. She passed away before I became an adult but I still think of her at least a few times a week, to this very day. It makes my heart smile every time I tell someone that my name is Anna Claudia.
So What's the Story Behind YOUR Name?
