    Father named me Timothy after the biblical figure. I never liked being named that way, but I appreciate his consideration none the less.

  2. SanityFound says:

    I am named after my two grandmothers who both passed away before I was born, my first name is Audrey which means “noble strength” and my second “full of grace”… I doubt either of the names have rubbed off on me!

  3. The name I was given at birth, Diane, was the name of my father’s only sibling who died when she was 5.

    I am not sure, but I think my name was a variant of that of one of my dad’s old girlfriends, but my mom didn’t realize it at the time. My mom liked it because it is simple, she thought it meant “beautiful” (it doesn’t), and she didn’t think anyone would add “-y” to the end (they did). But, I like it and the combination of my first and middle name technically means pure, fresh waterfall or something like that.

    I was a Christmas baby so I think that was it with Joy. My middle name is Alice after my grandmother and I didn’t like it when I was young but I’m glad I have it now.

    I an sure mine was because of the good old church what else.

    My name has no special meaning. My Mom wanted to name me Jamielyn. My Dad hated that name so she said fine, you pick her first name and I’ll pick her middle name. So he picked Nicole, knowing he planned on calling me Nikki ( he also picked the spelling on Nikki) My middle name is after a nurse who was taking care of her, she liked the name and it sounded good 2gether. So that’s how I became Nicole Rachelle. I think it’s a beautiful name.

  8. Tosha says:

    My first name.. I’m not sure how they came up with it but it was either that or Kiesha.. I’m glad they picked Tosha.. Even though i’m still not too fond of it.. Depending on what version of baby book/site you get you’ll get many different meanings.. Because each book says Tosha comes from a different name.. The Slavic meaning is bringer of joy or gifts…

    My middle name Renee means reborn..

    As one of three Mary Elizabeths on our Catholic-filled alley, I think Mary Elizabeth is simply the default good Catholic name. Mary for the Virgin Mary, of course, and Elizabeth for her cousin Elizabeth. My mom is Catholic, so I think she ended up with naming rights on me. Come to think, I believe she ended up with naming rights on my siblings, too. She named by brother after priests, my other brother was named for her and Dad, and she named my sister for my dad’s sister and a nun.

    I just looked up my name, both French. Nicole meaning Victory of the people and Rachelle meaning lamb?? Weird!

    My middle name is after my grandmother. My first name, Kelly, was mentioned as a joke by my mom. Our last name was Kellogg. Unfortunately, my father loved it and thought it was destiny or something. lol!

    Kelly Kellogg was awful to live with in school, but professionally it worked. Regardless, I like my married name mo’betta. 🙂

    My name does have a story to it. My mom said my name was going to be Michael if I was a boy and Michelle if I was a girl. They went up to Du’shane’s point for the 4th of July weekend and there I was. So they decided to name me Shane!

  13. Jane says:

    I’m not sure where Jane came from but my middle name is Jo after my dad. Nobody calls me Jane. It’s always been JJ.
