My family and I were talking about our names and my Dad said "I picked your name because a girl in school I knew had that name and was just beautiful, so I named you that......She turned out to be a crazy bitch when she grew up though." Lol aww, thanks dad.

My parents had two names chosen for me...and the moment I was born decided that neither fit. An attending physician suggested my name and both parents adored it.

That is why I'm Rai instead of Heather or Andrea :D

No sure about my first name, but my middle name, Estelle, came from a great aunt. Ugh. Was glad to get rid of it when I got married!

They couldn't agree, so he picked my first, she picked my middle.
Just names they liked. I got a "trendy" first name, classic middle. I wish it was the other was around!
One of the many Michelle's of the 80s! Middle name is Elizabeth.

From a song in a movie. In it two men share a wife and the town "steals" a wagon of whores.

I am Samantha because my moms nickname as a child was Sam.  She liked it so much that she decided to name me Sam.

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”
