Is your family name a name you can be proud of? I could always take pride in who I was and be proud to be a part of my family. If someone asked me who my parents were I was happy to tell them. I really took that for granted. I have kept my exhusbands name so my dd and I have the same name. I am ok with that, but my one regret is that I have no pride in it. I dont want it on my wall in a pretty decal. I can never tell my dd, "we are Spruels and we dont do that!", cause her dads family name isnt something to be proud of. (yes I know I picked him) but my point is do you have a name you can speak proudly? and if you do please dont take it for granted!! Is the name your making for your family one they could proudly claim to be a part of?Answer Question
A long time ago some chicken German guy went AWOL from the army and hopped a boat to America. He settled in the hills of Virginia, changed his last name, and fathered a bunch of kids and later had the tendency to...intermingle...because they were so reclusive. And so began my family name. No, I'm not proud of it, but you can't change who you are I guess. As a matter of fact, my parents found out (after thier divorce) that they were in fact distantly related. Very distantly, thank goodness.
I look at it this way, at least I'm not one of Hitler's kids or something.
Anon so people don't hit my Inbox shouting "Filthy inbred!" or something, lol.
