Curious about Names
I'm not sure what to write here but I am curious about people's names, like how your parents named you and your siblings. My mum's name is Tanith Janine which is really pretty and I've noticed that most women in my family have long names (like I am Shenaye Elizabeth and my aunt's are called Natalie and Rhiannon). And I'm curious about other people's names, I just want to know how you were named or what the favourite names in your family are.
I was named because my mum liked Shania but she wasn't sure so she was messing around with it and said Shenaye so she decided she liked it. Plus my mum was named Tanith because my grammy found it in a book and she decided she liked it.
So I'm curious, how were you named? And what names do your family members have that you love?
My brothers are Corey James Leonard and Ryan Graeme Terrence which I also like.
I am also a teenberry so I am not planning on naming kids for a decade or so.
