Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
The story always went that I was named after my mother's favorite dog, the one she had in late high school, when my parents met. A Boston terrier.

I'm Becky and not Rebecca, but it's probably significant that my mother's mother (who died before I was born) and her grandmother and her favorite cousin were all Rebeccas, although only her cousin went by Becky.

My sister Jody was named after the main character in The Yearling (who happened to be a boy), which my mother read during pregnancy.
