Were you named after anyone?  How did your parents decide on your name?

 My mom chose my older sister's name, so my dad got to pick my name. He had a co-worker who had just had a daughter named Chelsea. It was the first time he heard the name and he liked it and so did my mom. They both agreed on the middle name Lynn because it's my mom and grandma's middle name.

I wasn't named after anyone.  In fact, my parents thought I was going to be a boy (they didn't find out) and decided when my mom was in labor, on the way to the hospital, what my name would be "just in case" I turned out to be a girl.

My name is Kayla and I was named after a character on days of our lives. I was born in 1987 and that was a popular couple years for the name due to days of our lives lol

It was the name of a character on my parents favorite show. Sadly, the chick was a damn whore. When I found that out I was like "really Dad,you named me after a whore?".
