Do you know why your mother named you _____(insert your name)

Was it the name she planned all along?

My father actually picked my name.

My mother wanted to name me Mandy but dad was a Mork and Mindy fan sooo yes, I got stuck with Mindy.

He also picked my sisters name(thank god)Mom wanted to name her Tawanna(ta wanna)and dad put his foot down there..lol He named her Misty.

Soo, what about you?

My dad actually picked my name, which is Denisia Danielle.  I guess he always wanted a daughter named Denisia Danielle.

Mom picked my name. It was after a person on a soap opera.

My sister has a Russian name. My mom wanted to name me Katie, but that was huge in the 80s and she didnt want me to have a super common name. Plus my dad wanted my name to be Russian too. They settled on Katrina and I go by Katie.

My mom had no idea what she wanted to name me.  At the hospital in labor, she saw a mom call out to her blonde little girl by the name of Kendall.  She always imagined her little girl to be blonde too and liked the sound of it, so she named me that.  I'm not sure if the spelling was the same since she only heard it out loud and not seen it.

I don't know why they named me what they did..but I hate it. The name doesn't fit me, plus they spelled it differently and everyone screws it up unless I spell it out. They should have named me the first choice - Kaitlyn. A whole lot better than what they named me.
