Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
I wasn't named after anyone; in the end my parents had 2 names in mind and I'm just grateful they chose this one. It has exactly the same letters as my father's mother's middle name, just in a different order. My parents had considered naming me after my mother's mother who died before I was born. She was called Leah and at one time that was quite an unusual name so for ages I was disappointed that I hadn't been called that. However, it is becoming more popular so I'm not bothered any more.
