Re: mulch NOW Names

Did I ever tell you guys that with my husband, myself, and all our
kids...we all have "M" names...Marty, Melody, Meghan, Mark, and Morgan
and our last name is an "M" name, too...collectively in our town and
among our friends we are known as the M&M's...I know it's kind of
cutesy, but it gives us an identity as a family...something common to
smile at among ourselves that we instantly identify with...years from
now I hope my kids remember it and smile when they think back to the
time in their life when each of them was a baby M&M. :-) Family names
are important...a link to something bigger than just yourself. We were
at the cemetary the other day where my husband's family has been buried
for generations, visiting his dad's grave. We wandered around for about
an hour, looking at relatives and friends from the past and my kids were
astonished and delighted to find old names that they know in current
people in the family...Tade for instance: that is their great-great
grandfather and also their 17 year old cousin. Made a connection for
them when they saw that the other day.

??????<br>So how do they get your middle name to use it?<br>The only
person that needs to be comfortable with your name is YOU.<br>Chuckle, I
remember way back when this list was at AHS-msn and someone<br>accused
you of hiding behind a fake stupid name and you really let her
have<br>it! Good for you. I think your name is easy, especially since
you don't<br>mind it shortened to Zem - gosh how hard is that? As I
recall it is a name<br>that has been in your family for some
generations, something to be proud of.<br>Mine, too, is a family name
from long ago relatives in Ireland who used<br>several versions of it
and not, as some people think, just a cute
name.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:
