What’s the story behind your name? Think about it.
My name is Morgan. It’s Welsh for ‘Born by the Sea’, which is funny because I was born in California, and my hospital was literally by the sea. But that’s not why I was named Morgan.
My parents had a long list of co-ed names since they’re the type of people who like to keep the gender of their baby a mystery. Personally, I couldn’t do that. I’d want to know right when the test had a little plus sign if it was a boy or girl. It would drive me crazy not knowing!
Some of the names were Shane, Rory, and lots of other names that make me think, “And you named me Morgan?” We all have problems with our names. Either it’s spelled weird, or people make fun of you for it, or people can’t pronounce it. My issue? If I am called Megan one more time, I might become a bomber. Just kidding 🙂
Seriously though, our names are such huge parts of ourselves. If you’re a Sarah, you probably get upset because 30 million other people share your name. If you’re a Geraldine, you probably have grandchildren. And if you’re a Bill, you are probably a male.
Names are fascinating parts of people, so take the time to think about your own. What is the origin of it? Do you like it? Whatever it is, know that your name is part of you, and it’s like that old saying, “If you hate yourself, others will hate you too”. Just kidding!
Lots of love to all of you!
