  • My mom was going to name my Carrie, but I ended up with a birth certificate that said Catrina. Before we left the hospital Catrina was scratched and Cathy was it. Then my dad came along and said that every Cathy - with a C - that he'd ever known was ugly, so he made my mom go to court to have it changed to Kathy. Yeah, he's a dipwad. Anywho...I don't know that I like any of them all that much, but I got what I got and I guess it'll do.

  • My name is Ashley
    My parents had my name picked out before they had my older brother. When they got their girl my mom wanted to change my name because it was way to popular for her but my dad was determined to have his Ashley so there it was. My mom would have changed it to something like Breanne/a.
    If I had been a boy i would have been Kevin.
