Anyone care to share? smile

(Or, if you'd prefer, tell us the story/stories behind the names of your child/children.)

I am named after my Dad.

He is Michael Lee and I am Michelle Leigh.

We then went on to name my oldest son after both his Grandfathers' names, William Michael.

My daughter - we just liked her name, LOL

but my youngest son - he is from my second (current) marriage, and we were trying to think of ways to incorporate his name in with Michael and Jordan's, because we were working really hard to make sure they knew we were a family, not just a "step-family". My husband's name is David Adam, so we wound up with Seth - because Seth was the third son of Adam and Eve. Our Seth is our 3rd child, not our 1st.

I love the story behind Seth's name! How cool of your and your husband to think so inclusively about it.

I guess my story is unique!
My name is Maureen.

My mother is Carol Ann and her Sister is Maureen. When they were young girls, they promised to name their first daughter after each other.

When I was born, my mother wanted to name me Candice (eeew) and my father reminded her of her promise to my Aunt.

SO- ready for this? I am Maureen and my cousin is Carol Ann. We were both born on June 3rd.

I am Valerie Mae. Valerie was my aunts good friend who died in a car accident. Mae is my grandmothers middle name. I have one son named Tate Millan. We just liked the name Tate and Millan was my great grandfathers last name. If we have another son he will be Miles Franklin. Frank was Hubbys grandfathers name.

I am Darci Jeanne. I was suppose to be named either Kasandra or Shelly but my dad heard this name Dorsy at his job and my mom said she had never heard of it but she had heard of Darci and they both kinda fell in love with the name. Jeanne is from my great grandma on my dad's side. People say my names hillbilly-ish, but personally i like my name.
