My first name Felicia, came from some song that was out in 1965 when I was born. At one time I had the record but I dont recall who sang it.

I am named for the Rose of Sharon, but ever since The Knack put out a certain song my name has been Sharona.

If you are coming to see me, come any time! If you are coming to see my house, make an appointment.

Happy face

My first name is Iris. The story behind it is: My Mother was from Germany.My parents had been married 4 years and had already had 1 misscarraige and 1 son who only lived 3 days. So when she was pregnant with me they didn't buy any baby stuff or make any plans or anything. Then when I was born and was healthy they needed a name. The neighbor from the next farm came to the hospital to visit and she brought a big bouquet of Iris's. My mother had never seen them before and love them soooooooooooooooooo that became my name.

My name is Janet--I was named for my grandfather's half first cousin who was Janet Gaynor, the movie star--Janet also mean God's gracious gift and it was a complete surprise when my twin sister and I were born-they expected one baby.

I'm Kathleen Maria, my mum picked the name and wanted it kept Kathleen but my dad shortened it to Kathy and Kathy it stayed, I rarely use my full name but to fill out forms, and 99% of people, once you say Kathy automatically put it with a C, now that bugs me LOL. Maria, Mum wanted Mary but dad said no mum picked my first he's picking my second so it was Maria.

My name is Susan and I was named after my great-aunt, Sidie (Hungarian name). Being a '60's baby, I went to school in the time when there were at least 3 other Susan's in each classroom. However, as much as I disliked my name, I always felt grateful that my parents didn't name me Sadie (I don't mean to offend any Sadie's out there!).

My first name is Joyce. My brother was almost 10 when I was born and my father really wanted a daughter and when they brought me home, he looked down at me and said, "welcome home, Joyce Ann". Joyce means joyful and Ann means grace, I believe.

My name is Debbie, and I was name after Debbie Reynolds..She burst on the screen when my mom was carrying me( last daughter she had..I have 4 other brothers) she just fell in love with the actress so much she had to name me after her. The best part about it was that my mom visited Las Vegas when she went to visit her brother in California and met her idol in person and was able to talk to her and tell her that she had a daughter she named after her..Unforntunately years after that meeting my mom passed away and she was buried with a pic of her and Debbie Reynolds at that meeting..We all have a copy of the pic.
