Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
frogprince, my brother's name is "Delton!" He was named after our maternal grandmother's brother. Do you have any info on the origins of it? His middle name, Lorenzo, is a family one passed down in my dad's family, so he went by Delton and is mostly known as "Del." I've never *met* another Delton. Have seen one or two on google, but no one we know.

I wasn't named after anyone. My mom told me they were thinking of "Deborah Sue." I'm really glad I didn't get that one!
