i suppose all my names have a special meaning, around about the time i was born my parents were going throught a tough time with other family members so when i was born i was called amy which means beloved in old french. My two middle names are both named after people one was a character from my mums favourite film and the other one was after my dad. Although when it comes to names i was so lucky, my mum wanted to call me Francesca, one of the nicknames for that is Fanny which is a glasgow slang word for v@gina, so yeah i was really lucky my dad was thinking straight when he said no to that one lol...
My mother and father had a kind of system. If it was a boy she would write down a list of names and he would choose and if it was a girl he would write down a list of names and she would choose. So he wrote down a list of the ugliest and longest names that he could think of to play a prank on her and then she sat there not knowing what to do and they decided on her second name, Irene. lol. Which originally was from a song Goodnight Irene which my granparents danced to when my grandmother was pregnant with her.
My name is boring and has no fun story :o(. My daughters name however has a cool story behind it. Me and Chris met while at a bar years ago, i had on a shirt that shows my tattoos on my back (6 stars going down), and thats why he approached me. He just so happened to have the same 6 stars tattoed across his back in the opposite direction. So going off of how we met, our daughters name is Stella (which in italian means star).
When my mum was pregnant with my brother she used to watch Ricki Lake. My dad would come home to see heavily pregnant mum on the couch watching the same show she was the day before. He said "for f*ck sake you watch enough of that, the kid will come out and be named Ricki!" She said "good, he will be." She didn't really consider it but when he was born he looked like a 'Ricky' so she named him that. :)
Erm. I was "Girl" to my parents for about two weeks after being born, and "little sister" to my brother. Eventually, my parents decided they had to figure some sort of name out. When my grandparents visited to see me, my grandfather asked me to be named after his sister. Funny though, in Russian, my mom and I have different names, but in English, it translates to the same name.
I have an interesting story about my original name-Christine. My dad got to choose my name because I was the second child, and it turns out it was the name of my dad's ex-girlfriend...awkward much? So he settled on naming me after his mom, Anne...and spelled it wrong (Ann). So my interesting story is that the choosing of my name was just a big giant fail all around.
my name unfortunately came from my doctor's. my mom's doctor delivered all of her kids(my siblings) and i was the last one, and from what i understand, he jokingly said to my parents that they are going to name the baby(me) after him and unfortunately they took it seriously lmao and now im stuck with his name which i hate haha. but its a good name i guess
Mine isn't that creative. First name (Charles) just sounded good to my parents, and I think I have a relative somewhere with that name. Middle name is my grandpa's first name.
I like my younger sister's name tho. - Kassara. My one great- grandma's name was Ara, and my other's was Kassy. They wanted to combine the too, so got original.
My parents were going to name me Samantha. The whole time my mom was pregnant, I was "Samantha".
Then, when I was born...my dad looked at me, and said "She looks just like an Angel." :] Then, my mom and dad forgot all about the name "Samantha"... and decided to name me Angel. :D
my parents just picked out a bunch of names and thought of casey.. every name my mom said my dad said no i dated a girl with that name. until my dad finally picked casey. :)
My middle name comes from my dads best friend whos name is KIRK:P and my first name comes from the lady who taught my mom to cook:) nothing special but it interests me:))
my dad was gonna name me taylor, and my mom said no so when i was born my mom and the nurse that helped deliver me decided on shelby lolz
I'm named after Lucy in the sky with diamonds by the beatles :) My mum was a huuuge beatle fan when she was younger.
My mom wass watching the show Melrows Place and there was a girl named Taylor on it so she choose Taylor(:
"arionka" means the 7 child of a 7 child thats how i got my name
