    My first name I think my mom just heard and liked. My middle name was the name of my godmother to be who passed away before I was born.

    I'm Angel Marie.

    Moms mother died when mom was 12, her name was Marie, but in high school mom met a girl whose name was Marie but she was very plain and mom just didn't like her.  Mom had a friend named Angel, and mom thought it was nice as a nick name but not as a given name.

    Dad wanted to name me something horrendous like Eunice or Enid.

    When mom was about 8 months pregnant with me she walked into the room that was to be mine to put some clothes away and she swears to this day that she saw her mother standing over what was to be my crib as if she was waiting for me.

    Therefore, I was named Angel Marie

    Sarah Renee-Elizabeth

    From my maternal great grandmother, Sarah Ruby. She went by Ruby because she didn't like Sarah ... she went back to Sarah after I was born.

    Renee-Elizabeth ... Well, because my parents couldn't decide on a middle name & gave me both.

    Sure do. My mom wanted Torri (my first name-gag). She was originally going to name me Victoria, but was afraid I'd be called Vicky. My dad wanted Amanda. He always thought that was the cutest name for a little girl. lol And my great aunt Margaret always wanted a girl in the family named after her. So, they tossed it all together into Torri Amanda-Margaret. lol I go by Maggie.
