My first name no. But, my middle name is my Great Memere's (Mom's Grandma on her Mom's side) name, Juliette. I've always loooved it. I wanted it to be my first daughter's name, but my brother named his neice Juliette. *Sigh* At least it's still in the family right?

Yes my name started out as James after my dad because I was suppose to be a boy, so they came up with Jeanette from Jeanette McDonald the old school actress.

Well, funny story... Apparently, there is a woman in some of the old Westerns who plays Miss Kitty who is named Mandy... My parents thinking they were being original went with Amanda, and then Jeannette after my moms best friend.


Their second choice was "Sierra Moonbeam". (I've decided should I ever need one, that's going to be my stage/pen name!)

No, I don't think I was. My mom wanted to name me Emily Ann, but my dad picked my name (Laura Ellen). Growing up I was always sooooo glad that my name wasn't Emily Ann because it didn't 'feel' like me at all. Now I think it's a nice name, but it's still not 'me'.

Yep!


My first name was, according to my mom, Samantha because my grandpa promised $1000 to the college fund of the first grandchild named after him. I was a a girl, so Sam became Samantha (even though I only go by Sam). However, that money never materialized so if you ask my Dad I was named after the Bewitched character :)


My middle name is Traci after my Dad's sister who passed away when she was 18 from Leukemia. Everyone says it's scary how much I look like her, and I'm very proud to have her name!

Too funny about your grandpa and the $1000!! And that's why I don't want to use any family names...lol!


My name, Elise, is after a character from Family Ties. I guess my mom saw it on the show and just loved it. I love it too!

Not my first name - Rebecca.  My middle name (and actually my mom, sister and niece) is Anne - we were all named after my great-grandmother (Nana) on my mom's side.
