  • my grandmoms both named their daughters after themselves lol. on my dad's side agnes and on my mom's side verna. and my dad's mom was named agnes matilda at birth after her aunt tillie but she thought that name was hideous so when she got married she changed her middle name from matilda to cuff (her maiden name). i think that's so funny

  • I used to work with older people, and I encountered all of these names, and I loved each wonderful person. So the names have only sweet association for me.
