Do you happen to know how your name came about?
This is how I got my name.
See the name on the stone?
This lady was my great great grandmother. I was named after her.
I was the first born. A planned pregnancy also I understand. I wonder who decided on my name? Afterall, I was named after my fathers great grandmother, and I was told my dad actually wanted me to be named Susie. Not Susan. Not Sue. Susie.
So were they sitting around talking about it and the in laws and relatives stepped in and said, "What do you mean Susie??!!!!!" " We wont have any of that talk!" "You are too young to name a child!!" "Her name will be Melinda and that's that!"
Did they not even have a say in it????
And then did my dad ask for Sue to be my middle name, so that he could have somewhat of his original request? Hmm..I wonder..
And did my mom just sit there with this kicking baby in her belly and not say a word? Did she say to herself, "Whatever..I'll have 4 more children after this and I will name at least one of them what I want!". Did she mind at all? Did she secretly want to name me Reta? Was that it mom? I knew it!!! Ive always loved that name!!!! I always thought I looked just like a Reta or Rita!!!
Wonder if its too late now to change it????
Probably..Oh well...(Just teasing mom)
I still have my very own Reta at home.....
Little does she know how deep the roots run with her name..
Do you like your own name?
