My name came from my grandma's name!
Because my parents were so proud to have a daughter born in America, they decided to pick the "most American name" they could think up at the top of their heads. Hence, Jessica is my first name.
My cousin was 4 at the time my mom was pregnant and there was this local tv commercial with a girl called Kristina in it. So my cousin convinced my mom to give me the name Kristina just because he liked the girl from the tv.
When my Aunt Carita came to the hospital to pick up me and my mom, she found my mom sitting on the bed crying. She asked her why, and my mom blurted out we named her... (I'd tell you but it's now my middle name, and remember it made my MOM cry) So my first name, which was my grandfather's 2nd wife's name, became my middle name and my first name became Carita!
My name is actually an interesting story. It all started when i had a little baby brother but unfortunately he died. His name was Alejandro. A few years later they had me and named me Alejandra.
Oh not, I love this topic!My mother named me "Pearl" in my mother tongue, which means beautiful. They hope I will grow up and become a beautiful girl! This was their wish.And, I think I am. Haha!
Rigel is a star in the Orion constellation and my dad is a huge astronomy nerd and they didn't know what gender I was gonna be so they just went with that. Since it works for any gender, I think. I like it regardless. Hey, at least no one else in classes and stuff will have my name, no confusion!
My mum told me she got my name from a calendar. That was during her 8th month of pregnancy. She liked it and didn't even bother looking it up the dictionary or online. The surprising thing is that had someone asked me to pick a name for myself year later I'd still go for the same name. Nothing befits me better than my name..
In my place, a child is named after the circumstances surrounding his or her birth and mine wasn't different either because I was named based on the several circumstance surrounding my birth. I was conceived 7 years after my brother and at a time when all hope was lost.
During my birth my mom went thru a lot and I was born into wealth as there was food, clothing and shelter, Lolz. So I was named gift from God and a child sought after.
I guess I have remained a gift because i am the only girl.
My mother chose my name when she was eight-years-old. She said she always knew that if she ever had a little girl, she would name her Angela. Most people in my family call me Angel, but my mother hates for anyone to call me Angie since she was a beautician and had a customer she really disliked and her name was Angie.
Hi, In my family on my mother side it is a tradition to have a J in the name, my moms name is Judy, her two siblings are Janet and June, etc, so my father always wanted a son named Eric and it was my mothers turn to chose a name for me, (my father and mother took turns on who got to name the child, there are 5 of us) my mom decided to put a J in front of Eric coming up with Jeric!
I don't even have a name for three months, my mom and dad can't decide what they would name me as a baby, so they called me by their pet pig's name while they are figuring out what to call me. And luckily, after 3 months they have given me an appropriate name. They got my first name from my grandmother, and my second name from my other grandmother.
My mother, God rest her soul, forgot with all the commotion of my birth that she thought to name me Rachel or Sandy. When my grandpa walked in the hospital room he simply asked "So what are you going to name her?" And without much thought but knowing how he always wanted someone to name their daughter after his mother that he had loved so much, she said. "Sophie Eugenie!" From that moment on he and I were inseparable!
My name was a bit of an accident. My parents had picked out a name long before I was born, and that name was Rochelle. But, on the day of my birth, my mother met a woman in the hospital who happened to changed her mind. My mother found the new name so beautiful and unique, and well, the rest is history.
My name came from my grandpa!
I was named after my mothers best friend. Her name was Melissa so my mom wanted to be a little bit creative and dropped the m, so i am left with Elissa.
I am African but my name is of Middle Eastern origin. My parents were inspired by an ex Prime Minister of Pakistan so they named me after her. It means unique.
While growing up i didn't like the name much because i seemed to be the only one bearing the sort of name but now more than ever i love my name. I feel unique, blessed and incomparable. Benazir
That is too cute!!!
My name is a compromise between what my mom wanted (first name was a neighbor or friend, I think) and what my dad wanted. I always feel like it fit me, but it's just a name. I have many nicknames and counting.
My complete name is Bea Caramel Plantar.And darn my mom loves caramel popcorn so she named me caramel.
Who would have thought?
Your name makes me hungry, Bea.
My mother chooses my name in honor to my late grandfather. At first I never like it but I have no choice, so I decided to take a college course that can give you abbreviation in your first name. Now, I never blame my parent to choose that name instead I am grateful for them.
How did my parents come up with my name??
Well my mother's name is Gertrudes and my Father's name is Nelson
so they come up with the name Gerson.
The Nino though comes when my mother gave birth to me i am a blue baby i should not live for long but my mother pray to sto. nino ( the child jesus) and she believes that i was healed by sto. nino so she puts the name nino and gerson to my name..
My name Stefanie is from my dad's name which is Stephen. My second name Nicole is from a royalties' name whom my mom adored so much.
My parents named me after my grandparents. My middle name is a variation of my Grandfather's name, Lyle.
My parents actually get this name of mine VINCENT VAN from the movie before which has a titled BAY WATCH. actually she definitely love to watch this movie when she still carrying me in her womb.
My first name, came from my grandmother's name Cecilia and my mother's name Evelyn. Thus, Cecille Eve was born.
I initially don't like my name as it is so common in my place. I asked my father how he ended up naming me "Jessa," he just simply replied, " when your mom is trying to deliver you, I prayed to Jesus for a safe delivery; and when you finally came out, the first word came out of my mouth was "Jessa."
My name is Phoebecates. My father gave me that name because of her favorite Hollywood actress Phoebe Cates.
I got my name from my grandparents of both sides, my father is the one who thinks over it. From my mother's parents, Ernesto and Rosalina, and from my father's parents was Florencio and Escolastica, thus coming up with a name, Erleen Flores. Although my second name has always been mistaken as a surname, I loved how it came to be!.
My mom admired the late Pope John Paul II so much that she named me after him. I've never really bothered asking her about the origin of my name. Maybe because I was never really into names. I still remember that day when the world cried over the death of the beloved Pope. He seems to be a genuine good guy, too bad he departed too early.
