You Know You’re a Name Nerd When….

You Know You’re a Name Nerd When….

Name nerds (or should that be name connoisseurs?) usually come to the obsession early and easily.

I probably knew I was a name nerd when I decided my favorite fairy tale was Rumpelstiltskin, and I learned the names of all of the Twelve Dancing Princesses.

Or maybe it was when I started sitting through all credits of every TV show and movie, just to read the names of the cast and crew.

Or maybe it was when I’d had all the names for my future children picked out by the time I was eleven.

How did you know you were a name nerd? And what do you think makes you qualify?
