Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
My grandmother was named Rosetta Lily, but for all of her 99 years was known as Birdie. Few people knew her real name, even friends. I didn't name Rosie The Wonder Dog for her directly, though it figures in there somehow. Rosie was named for a character in Led Zeppelin and AC/DC songs..and I just like the name, maybe because my grandmother wasn't known by it.
My older brother got my Dad's name, and I'm glad I didn't as I already answer the "are you related" question a lot.
