Carrie

Carrie Mills. When I was young I wished my mom had named me Cindy…for some reason I presently do not recall. I was named after my Aunt Cecilia. They took the initial C from her name.

Stephanie

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.

Milton

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.

Rachel

Rachel – from the Hebrew meaning “ewe”. She is vivacious, small and attractive with quiet intelligent strength. A calming influence in stressful situations.

Jay

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.

Bruce

I was named after my father, but my whole life I have identified with it and I like the fact that there aren’t too many Bruce’s out there

Steve

I relate to, “Coach” or “G” way more than my name. Really it’s just family and a few friends who call me Steve.
