Yeah, possibly. But I posted that pic to my SoH profile last night. Coincidence? No way.

Go look at the new guy's published questions which you can access from his profile. The humpday question was funny.

Yes, there was a popular song that came out in the early 60's. When my mom heard it, she decided it was going to my name.

My parents just liked the name "Emily"--as did, apparently, a lot of parents in the early 90s... :)

My middle name is Ruth, after my aunt who died about a year before I was born.
My mom wanted my first name to be Chloe or Harmony after the Elton John songs but my dad said absolutely not. I would have loved either of those names though!

My mother's name was Emily, although she was born in 1918 so wasn't part of the Emily fad. My niece, who was born before my brother married her mother & adopted her, was named Emily in 1984. We liked having 2 Emilys coincidentally in the family.

My first name, no. My middle name is a family surname (that of my great-grandparents, = my grandmother's maiden name), which apparently was a tradition in my mother's family.

My mother combined all of her sisters(3) middle names to make my whole name but later they had to shorten it(like K-5?) because it was so long. If I told y'all the names y'all would laugh lol
