My name is my father's name... and my grandfather's name.
The tradition in my family is that the first born son gets the father's name. But, to distinguish each other we all have nick-names. The nick-name is chosen by the mother. The "check and balance" of it, is that the grandmother (father's mother) can veto the proposed nick-name. It's a good thing too... because if not for my grandmother vetoing my mother's first choice, my nick-name would've been Garth!
My name is not my name. Although, Iwas named by my mother and father, people of the elder age rarely us my name. It's always "aren't you so-in-so's daughter". After that becomes known they start calling me a smaller version of my mother or fathers name. For example "little Susie" or "little C".This can become annoying, but it's the way people reconizes a person or identify a person. My name becomes important when it comes to marriage. That's why my last name becomes my middle name when it come to marriage.It's like cindy smith jones.
There is no sugnificant meaning behind my first name. My mother pretty much just picked a name that sounded good to her. A funny story however is that the entire time that my mother was pregnant, my father called me "George" because he wanted a boy. Once I was born he couldn't pronounce the first name that my mother gave me so until this day everyone in my family calls me by my middle name.
