It's none of my business so I had to ask . . .

I had lots of fun with your answers last week
on the topic of
"It's none of my business so I had to ask . . .".
I think I will do this each week.
Please answer as you wish
then invite your friends to join us!


How was your name chosen
for you; Do you know?

Do you like your name?

If you could choose your
own name, what would
you choose?

Love my name--you hardly ever run into a Beverly. Don't know how it was chosen, maybe I need to ask. I don't think I would change it, though I did tweak the spelling in middle school--Beverley, Beverlie, etc. Just don't call me Bev!

My mother babysat a little girl while pregnant. She loved the name and so I got it.
I hated it growing up. I had several classmates that were male with the same name.
I dreamed about changing it when I was a kid but now I don't care. It's my name. I did however make sure to give my children gender select names. That was important to me.

Georgia said...

My grandfather's name was George, and I was born on his birthday. As I child, I didn't like Georgia because only little old ladies shared the name with me. Now, I love those little old ladies and enjoy encountering a white haired Georgia; I did just the other night when we were out eating. Also, I currently have a few preschool friends named Georgia.

Ann said...

I don't know where Ann came from, but my middle name, Marie, was from a friend of my Mother, who was a nurse.

Kathy said...

My name has created confusion all my life. My mother had a friend in high school named AmyNell. I got the first part of the name. My middle name is Kathalyn. She made it up.

But, my family always called me Kathy. When I began working everyone at work called me Amy. Now more people know me as Amy than Kathy. I forget what name I've made appointments under. And if that isn't difficult enough, my last name is Laurie.

Madi and Mom said...

Great questions.
Well when I was expecting nearly 40years ago we did not know the sex of the bundle of joy. So we had several boy and girl names in mind; however, much like when walking down a cafeteria line we 'had to see the food/baby before commiting to a name'!! Turns out the name we choose was a perfect fit. When she was 8 she wanted to change her name to Cindy...and she even had another last name she wanted...are you ready? She wanted to be Cindy Musselwhite. LOL Her name is actually two grandmother's names combined (we're in the South LOL).
But it is a name no one ever had in all her years in school. I like my name, Cecilia, too. As I child, I was the only one with that name for a long time.

I like my name. My mom named me after a friend of hers. I did however shorten it to Jo.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I like my name but I have no idea why my mom chose Simone. I think because it rhymed with Syrone. Having twins, it just made sense to have rhyming names.

If I could choose another name, I think I'd choose the one I have.

Mary said...

Hmmm...Let's see: Mary & Catholic. Can you guess? :D
I don't know what I would change my name to if I could.

Kelli said...

Well, my sister was a Kelly Girl (temporary office help) when my mom was pregnant with me and my mom let her name me. She only changed the spelling a little...changed the y to an i. Middle name is Renee because my sister liked that, too. Funny thing is just a year or two later, my sister and her best friend Connie named Connie's niece, too. Know what they named her? Kelli Renee. Good thing no one else they knew was pregnant while they were still on that kick...

Me (aka Danielle) said...

I was supposed to be Michelle (or Scott, had I been a boy). My dad however loved the name Danielle...and Danielle it is..was..

I actually LOVE my name. I've honestly never thought about changing it, because I do like it.

Ninny said...

Well, I have no idea how my mother chose my name (Elizabeth Ann, and boy could she drawl that one out when I was in trouble), and I guess I like it. Especially considering the fact that I would be a Norman had I been a boy! Despite my mother's attempt at bestowing a royal name on me, my first grade school crush nicknamed me Lizard and THAT name has stuck for the past 50 years, LOL.

Kimmy said...

Oh this is fun!!!

My mom was actually almost named Kimberly. Instead, she got a Jewish name of Jayne (Jay-knee). Anyways, my name was almost going to be Tanya but because of the whole Patty Hearst kidnapping back in the 70's (remember, they called her Tanya) which was around the time I was born, my parent's decided not on that and instead named me Kimberly. I like my name and wouldn't change it. I like that people call me Kimmy because my personality fits it. I'm fun, bubbly and happy!

Kat said...

This is fun! My name was an afterthought. My aunt was expecting twins and Mom told her if she ever had twins she wanted to name them Pamela and Tamela, which is what my cousins ended up being named. Then 6 months later Mom found out she was carrying twins and she decided on Katherine and Karen. Thank goodness, Kat fits me much better than Pam or Tam. Kat
