Is there some sort of unusual incident or interesting anecdote, regarding how you got your first or middle name?

Asked by JackAdams (6492points) September 6th, 2008

A woman gave birth to her daughter in a car, and the kid’s middle name is now CAMRY. The video on that story is here

So, do YOU have a story to share with the group? You, or someone you know? (I don’t.)

The day before my baby-naming, my parents realized that my initials were ASS, so they gave me a middle name.

Camry is quite a nice name actually! Never thought of that…but can you imagine when the child asks…mom, dad who was I named after….
I was going to name my son such and such….and then realized he would have had the initals….A.D.D. Attention, Deficit, Disorder. I changed it real fast!

I knew a gal who was NEVER called Barbara, because her initals were B-I-B.

GUESS what she was called by her friends…

@JackAdams, This is a bit off subject and no disrespect to the post. But, where I live, we have an anchor man and his last name is Semen…Bob Semen. My son has a hoot every time he hears it. I would have seriously changed my last name, when I turned 18!

Yikes, I’d be changing it, soon as I hit 18! Sorry, but I wouldn’t be the one to carry on the family name!

Everyone with that surname, so far as I have been able to determine, is CAUCASIAN.

I thought she would NEVER leave!

I forgot to add LOL to my previous post. My public apologies are offered.

Yes, I like that kind of bread, also.

It’s Greek, as I recall…

sarapnsc's avatar

It’s not bread, it’s UUUUUUU!

PITA in my definition is short for – A Pain in the Ass! Now you have popped out and become a hemorroid….........:)

@Jack, just teasing you, don’t be mad!

JackAdams's avatar

Nah. I can take a joke.

Besides, you are someone whom I like, respect and admire…

Otherwise, you’d be dead now. (J/K)

Have you ever noticed that, on this site, some who moderate, are not moderate enough?

Yes, I have noticed and I have sent an email! Oh forget it, it won’t do any good!

God bless you.

Let me know where I can mail your money order.

No interesting story. My middle name is my grandmothers name.

wildflower's avatar

Not really. I’m the youngest of 3, my parents were both the youngest of 5 in their families, so I was the last of my cousins to be born and at that time noone was named after my grandfather, so whoopi, I got the two most awkward to spell and pronounce names!
