Do you remember a time when you were growing up...I mean the time when you were young and growing up...lol ... did you ever wish you had a different name? I didn't like my name for a long time and wished that I could have a name like one of my friends. Her name was Ingrid. Oh, if I could only have a name as exotic as that. Her father was Norwegian and gave his daughter such a lovely name. But when we went off to college she and I roomed together in a dorm and Oh MY did I decide fast that the name Ingrid wasn't for me...lol
So much for thinking I should choose my own name.
But I was named for my father of all things...and ya know what??? As I grew older I became very proud of being named after such an amazing man.
If you could have picked your own name, what would YOU have chosen?
