Behind the Name


I finally asked my mother why I was named April. I’ll warn you, it’s not an exciting answer.

She liked the name.

And there were already two Mays in the family.

Pretty boring, right? I think so.

    I think only the lucky ones have fascinating stories about how their parents came up with their name.

    I am named Abigail because my mother came across it while she was reading the Bible. Apparently I was Sarah before that. Apparently the name means “beloved of God”. I am a confirmed and passionate atheist so I can’t say I’m thrilled.

      We have a little booklet at work with the meaning of names. You’d be surprised how many are supposed to mean “beloved of God.”

  3. I was named Cheryl because apparently back in the days, one of the actress in Charlie’s Angels is Cheryl Ladd and my mom found it to be a nice name. -.-
