What's in a name?

Hi ladies,

So as many of you may know (or perhaps you don’t) the other mods and I are in the call center and often hear our fellow BAs on the phone. We often have some clients with really unique names call in! Two of my favorites have been Tuesday and Electronica.

I have a lot of friends with really cool names as well! My best friend’s name is Xelha (Shay-la), the poor girl had a pretty hard time growing up…during role call teachers always botched it. There have been a handful of times that people have gotten it right though, which is impressive.

My parents are huge jazz fans and were dead set in naming me Billie after Billie Holiday, but opted to name me after one of their favorite songs instead. I’ll admit that I am a tiny bit bummed that they didn’t go with that, I really like ‘traditional’ boy names for girls…I think it’s cute J.

Do any of your friends or family members have incredibly awesome names? Were you blessed with a really amazing name or does your name have a great story behind it?

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Sadly my given name is really average and boring but it does kind of fit me at least... my mom was considering naming me after my great great grandmother and then my name would have been Ester Smiley Happy I definitely like the trend of unique names these days, I think it gives a person some character Smiley Wink

Re: What's in a name?

I've been noticing a trend of 'vintage' names for babies recently. Ester, Constance, Hazel...they're making a big comeback! It's really refreshing Smiley Happy.

Whimsically yours,

Re: What's in a name?

My Mom was set on my middle name being "Leigh", but she decided it'd be easier on me to not name me "Sarah Leigh".  Pound cake, anyone?

Re: What's in a name?

My name is Mahin (pronounced "maa-hin") and in school teachers always used to butcher the pronunciation. A lot of times, substitute teachers would just skip over my name just so that they wouldn't have to attempt saying it! Smiley Sad I don't think it's that difficult of to say but I haven't met anyone else named Mahin! 

Re: What's in a name?

My first name is pretty common.

Stefaknee. I added some flair with the spelling just then since its boring. I prefer to be called Steph though. My last name is the unique one, but I can't give that one out Smiley Tongue

 

@janinebt, I went to school with a Tuesday, and Saturday is my best friend! No, really though I did go to school with a girl with snake bite piercings named "Tuesday". lol

 

 

Re: What's in a name?

I know it's cheesy, but I think it'd be cool to be the girl named...wait for it..."Friday".  "TGIF", "My Girl Friday"...all kinds of fun when you hear her name!

Re: What's in a name?

I'm sure there is someone out there with the name Friday. Maybe it can be pronounced like Fre dai

Re: What's in a name?

Haha I'm surprised more people aren't named Friday...it is most people's favorite day of the week!

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: What's in a name?

Janine, THANK YOU!  See, everyone?  I'm not such a dork, am I? Sweet Janine got it!  Adorable and FUN name, IMO!
