  • When I was three my middle name was changed to my great grandmother's first name. And that's now the first half of my daughter's first name.

  • My dad's favorite cousin is a woman named Annie. He assumed it was a nickname and named me Ann.

    Came to find out many years later it wasn't a nickname. I'll stick with my version.

  • Not exactly. I am child #2. My Grandma's 1st name is Kay, then they gave Kae to my Mom for her middle name, and then I got it. So I guess that is halfway named after someone. Or....we could go with Jennifer as my first name and I can think of A LOT of people I was named after....

  • My mom liked the name of a country (why I don't know) and she combined it with my g-grandma's name to create a very unique name that no one can seem to pronounce.
