I am Sarah but my dad pushed hard for the V-names Valerie, Victoria, and Veronica..I have loathed how common my name is but I do love it, its hard to imagine myself as any of those, but Victoria is beautiful and classic and I imagine that I may have been a more elegant and put together version of myself with a name like Victoria (although Vicky-not so much IMO).Mama to little Ramona Mae 3/2011 and Sylvie Joy born 11/2013

If I had been a boy I would have been Thomas Jay (TJ).
I was supposed to be Andrea Devon - but a month or so before I was born my dad heard the song "Hollyann" on Boston's Third Stage album and fell in love. Since he is HBM III, they picked a B name - Beth - for the middle so I would have the same initials as him and my grandfather and great-grandfather....
They were apparently, though, still going between the two when my mum went into labor. She had to have a cesarean and while she was still all out of it my dad decided that I looked like a Hollyann. I am glad, though. I am not an Andrea at all, and now I share my initials with my nephew, Hunter Brady, as well

Amaré Elyse (2 years). Her name is the present infinitive of "to love" in Latin, and we pronounce it with an accent on the end, so it sounds (phonetically) like Am-uh-RAY. We love her name, and especially the sweet way she says it herself.
Job Marcellus (Born 11/6/2013). We call him Joby.
"Indeed, we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful." ~ James 5:11 ~
