When I was young I was a tomboy and wishes but I had a cool name like Josephine, so my nickname would be Jo. Think Jo March on little women. But I feel as if I couldn’t have been named anything else. Steph just seems to fit. I wasn’t named after anyone.
When you posted this question, it was the first time I had ever asked myself that. Milton has been a family name on both sides for as far back as anyone can remember. Everyone says that it is an old man’s name, and maybe it is.
Named after my father, my grandfather wanted a boy so I’m named after him. My first name is James After 3 generations of James, people started calling me Jay. So, I legally changed it to do. My nephew is named James, we call him J.J.
