My name is pretty common and I've always felt that my parents didn't put much thought into naming me. They already had kids, so maybe they were running out of names?
When it came time for me to have a child, my ex husband and I bought a book of African names. . .
we wanted my daughter's name to be unique & special and a reflection of her heritage.
I tell my daughter that a lot of thought, a lot of love & inspiration went into naming her.
Her middle name is in honor of my nephew, and through her his name lives on.
Yep, her name is pretty special. . .
and that's the [true] story I tell her.
