Were you named after anyone?

I was named after my aunt but before i turned a year my aunt found out that my mom had made a HUGE mistake and disowned her. When i was about 11ish my aunt decided to forgive my mom. But by that time i had already decided i didn't want to be named after someone who hated my family.
So i go by my middle name.

Were you named after anyone?

  • I was named after my great-grandmother...sort of. No one in my mom's family can remember if her first name was Sarah (my first name is Sara) with the nickname Sally, or if it was the other way around.

  • No, my parents just liked the name. They did name my middle name after my mother's middle name.

  • Well my middle name(which I hate) is also my moms,grandmother, gr8 grandmothers and gr8 gr8 grandmothers middle name. It's some weird family tradition.

    I'm not sure if it is intentional or not but my first name is the same as my dads ex fiancee.

  • My mom named me after Tabitha on the TV show Bewitched. She did change the spelling to Tabatha. My middle name Darlene is after a dear friend of hers who died. I was lucky she almost named me Pebbles Adele. Pebbles after Pebbles on the Flintstones and Adele after my great grandmother.

  • My first name is my paternal grandmother's name, and my middle name (which is what I go by) is my maternal aunt's name, but she died of breast cancer before I was born. :-(
