My first name is for my dad, but a name that mom liked so not really. My middle name is the same as my Mom's and most of the girls on her side of the family. My little cousin was named after me though.

I'm named after my brother's first girlfriend/crush. My folks had finally settled on a name to call me, but they were having trouble finding a name to go with it. My brother (9 at the time) recommended her name & they liked the way it sounded.

Your 9 y.o. brother was in love with a girl named Bama?

What kind of hick town do you live in?

If you'd watched SOHHO on Tuesday, then you'd know my first name is Susan. 😊

That said I did go to high school with a guy named Bear & he was named after Coach Bryant. It was even a private high school.

Much better name for your brother to pick. You seriously dodged a bullet there. Phew! 😁

I'm Robert. Named after my father. Although I hear that it is interchangeable with ASS, or so my daughter says her mom calls me behind my back. Meh?!
