Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
I was named after both my Grandfathers. My Maternal Grandfather gave me my first name.The scots diminutive Of Alexander is Alec rather than Alex,My Scots born mother was always very insistent on this as am I.
I was,originally,going to be called after my Father but "Dad" is such a stupid name for a child that I'm very pleased I wasn't.
