Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Are you named after anyone? I was named after my father's brother. At the time they figured he'd be a lifelong bachelor. They were wrong and he eventually married. He was just a late starter like myself - I didn't get married until I was 45. My wife Bretta however was named after Bret Maverick – James Garner's character on the old TV western "Maverick". They were expecting a boy – they were going to call him Bret - and when they ended up with a girl they improvised.
How about yourself ? Were you named after anyone ? Is there a story behind your name ? Those of you who are in the witness protection program need not respond.
