Your Name Your Story

The Story of a Name

How and why did you get your name? Was it to honor a relative or describe a trait? Remind your family of a time or place? Or maybe it was to promote mom’s favorite sports team or dad’s favorite romance novel!

Names can define who we are. How has your name shaped your identity? How is your personality similar or different from the one your parents associated with your name when you were born? What was special about the person you were named after, and are you carrying on their legacy, or creating a completely new one that’s your own?  

We’re collecting and sharing the stories of names. We’ll do that here on the blog, and eventually, in a book!

So… what’s your story?

Answer a few questions and share your story to see how others replied. Then check on the blog for new stories!
