Who was you named after, or was you named after someone?

My mum was 16 when she got pregnant with me. In that day and age it was not accepted to be in school and pregnant. She had a very hard time going to school,even though she was an A student. There was one girl that befriended her and that is who she named me after. So where did you get your name from?

  • My middle name is Amberly because I was born in October and my father liked the Amber colors of the fall leaves.

    My kids have family names though, but some of the spelling is changed. My oldest her name is Louisa McBeth, which my late mothers middle name was Louise so I changed that to Louisa and my MIL is Irish and her maiden name was McBeth. My youngest her name is Ryleigh Elaine, My husbands grandmas name was Riley, so we changed the spelling. Then his stepdad had a older sister that died at birth her name was Elaine.

  • Who was you named after? You are so ghetto it is not even funny. You are rude and ghetto. Are you black because if you're pretending to be black you are just insulting us by saying things like that, The proper way to say it is Who were you named after.
