Re: mulch NOW Names

We wanted to name one second daughter Sarafina after one of my husband's
relatives but it didn't go with the "M" theme we had already established
with the other 2 kids and we didn't want her to feel left out, so we let
Meghan and Mark help name her and they came up with Morgan Sarah, which
was close enough for us.

At least y'all got names. I was "Hodges Female" for several
days.<br>Apparently, I was supposed to be a boy (although there was no
such thing as<br>ultrasound so I guess my mom had a vision or something)
and my name was<br>Jeffery Devon. When I turned out to be a girl they
were stumped. Now I'm<br>Andrea Alane. I was telling Zem I think they
should have gone with something<br>more daring, like my one of my
ancestors named Texanna or something. ;-)<br><br>Andrea H<br>Beaufort,

Zem. When I was born I was named for my two
maternal<br>grandmothers<br>> - Martha Grace. But when my mother died
five months later they changed my<br>> birth certificate to show her
name, Auralie. Now the story was that her<br>> father, Grace's husband,
had named her for his first love who he claimed<br>was the<br>> most
beautiful woman he ever saw. Grace was no beauty even when she
was<br>young.<br>> Then twenty years later my father, with a second
wife, had another<br>daughter,<br>> and again named her for the two
maternal grandmothers - Martha Jean. I<br>have<br>> never quite gotten
over that - I felt that they gave her my name and that<br>I was<br>> a
non-person to my father's family. I know, intellectually, that was
not<br>> true, but that's the way I felt then. And I always felt much
more like a<br>Martha<br>> than like an Auralie, especially since Grace
never failed to assure me<br>that I<br>> was no match for either of the

rlier Auralies.<br>> Oh well. It just made me tougher and more
determined to be myself.<br>> Names have strange powers, don't they. A
rose by any other name might be a<br>> real stinker.<br>><br>>
