   My parents gave me the name, Susanne.  I was named after my Grandmother, Susan and, my Aunt Ann. So they put the two names together and came up with Susanne.

    Why did you Parents give you YOUR name?

 I have NO CLUE!

lol.. my mother liked simple names. While expecting me, she thought, "Eric, or Erica,,, or Lee, or leigha". I could've lived with Erica or Leigha, but she said when she saw me after I was born, it was going to be 'Fay'.

and I am not fond of the name....sigh....

It was the only name my mom could think of that wasn't associated with someone she didn't like....Cyndi (Cynthia) and her best friend at the time was Roxanne so that is my middle name....

Because my dad convinced mom that the name "December " + 8 letter last name was just cruel and unusual punishment.

So she relented to " Holly "

GO DAD!

My hospital name was in memory of a past relative.

My dad wanted to name me after his mom, Cora. Mom said no way!

So, I'm Hillarie named after a character in a movie called The Rare Breed with Jimmy Stewart.

Oh after a tug boat that my dad said he saw on a movie. I have found evidence this is true it is about a Tug Boat Cheryl Ann and that's my name. hahaha  He named me yet, he always spelled it wrong. It's Cheryl but he always wrote Cherly
