May 12 – What’s in a Name?

12 05 2010

Your name is your first label. It identifies who you are to the rest of the world. It’s actually an incredibly important part of who each of us is. Yet we don’t get any say in what our name will be – unless you’re Picabo Street. At the same time most names have a long history to them, our parents put a lot of thought into the decision or the name is passed down from generation to generation.

How did you get your name? How does it define you? If you had the opportunity would you rename yourself or keep it? If you were to rename yourself what would it be and why?
