My Name is Nancy

A person's name has a fascination. Sometimes a name of a thousand years ago has a different connotation today. But some remain the same. We react to other people's names and they react to our names. Beyond the names themselves, do you know of  the people who chose your name? Reflect on what was important to them in chosing a name such as tradition, novelty, defiance and obscurity.

My name was chosen because my mother was reading a McCalls magazine story and the heroine's name was Nancy.

How was your name chosen?
