I don’t think I ever had two people I dated with the same name. Not the people I actually dated dated, anyway.
In regards to the ‘do you resemble your name’ discussion, my mum once told me this.
“When I was pregnant with you, I was going to call you Emily or Flora. I thought they were nice, delicate, feminine names. Now…” *eyes me critically* “well, now I think Emily is a nice, delicate, feminine name.”
Haha! My mom said she had picked out more than one name for me. One was Ellie. She said when I was born, I just didn’t look like an Ellie…and one of the other names she picked was Maegan & she used that. The spelling was important to her…she wasn’t sure why, but she hated Megan/Megen/Meghan or any other variant. It HAD to be MAEgan.
I can’t imagine Jocelynn w/ any of the other names I picked out while I was pregnant…and now that I’m doing it all over again…I want to have a group of names to choose from rather than just ONE single name to use no matter what.
But I know plenty of people who are Bob or Tim that don’t seem especially round.
