SO MANY NAMES TO CHOOSE FROM..."0-MY". SO DO YOU LIKE YOUR GIVEN FIRST NAME? DOES YOUR NAME HAVE A MEANING ATTACHED, OR DO YOU KNOW WHY YOUR PARENTS CHOSE YOUR FIRST NAME?
MY FIRST NAME GIVEN BY MY FOLKS IS:
CAROLINE - Named after my Father's mom who died shortly after giving birth. His mom had 10 children total - all natural birth. The first 9 children were all girls, my dad was the 10th and only boy.
Growing up in New York City - there's a rice and jingle which goes "Carolina The Extra Long Grain Rice". Growing up with that was not easy, since I was tall for my age, and long plus thin body frame and yes the gingle was attached to my hip by friends and enemies alike. LOL!!! However, I have come to admire and be proud of my name, it did help that I relocated from New York City, double LOL so the gingle isn't a continous reminder any longer of kid mean pranks, if you know what I mean. I never got to know my Grandmother, nor ever saw a picture, she was from the rule parts of Puerto Rico, but I am honored to be her name sake.
Caroline I have read stands for "Song of Joy", and that's pleasant, although I really can't hold a note, though I love to sing...I am a" joyful singer", but do bring ear plugs.
csjoy1 (Caroline), would love to know what's in your name and do you like it?

My name is Amy. I like my name now, but growing up I wasn't all that thrilled with it. It was second only to Jennifer in the 70's, so it was really common. I also felt my parents didn't put much effort into choosing it. My parents are the King and Queen of indecisive, so even though I was born 3 weeks late they still hadn't settled on a girl's name when I arrived. Apparently it was pretty common practice to give women drugs during labor back then, so my mom was pretty out of it, which meant my dad probably made the naming decision. They claim that at the time they didn't even realize they had given me the same name as my mom; she goes by her middle name, but her first name is Amy. I always wondered why she would allow me to be named a name she chose not to use for herself.
