Thread Name: BS: Were you named after anyone?
Subject: RE: BS: Were you named after anyone?
I was intentionally NOT named after anyone else. Mother wanted me to have a unique name and she didn't know of anyone named Neil at the time. After Mr. Armstrong landed on the moon she was afraid that suddenly there would be a trend of parents naming children Neil but I don't think that actually happened. I still seldom ever run into another with my given name.
