my mom had her heart set on naming her baby girl kimberly... that was before she fell in love with my dad, who was divorced and already had a daughter named kimberly. worked out, the name wouldn't have suited me at all.



charlotte sometimes

Maura

I've only known one girl w/ that name- she was very pretty and sweet, so now it has a positive connotation for me. I like the name anyway

yep. They are global now. They purchased Transamerica *here in the US because they wanted a good American Insurance company*. They have operations in Spain, UK, Canada, Mexico, America and Asia.

My mom wanted to name me Kelly but my paternal grandmother insisted I be named after her - Trinidad. My mom dropped the 'dad' part and just put "Trini" on my birth certificate, and it's pronounced like the island of Trinidad (without the 'dad' of course). She then felt it was too stuffy to call me that as a baby and started calling me Trina, and it's stuck with me ever since. I'm glad she didn't call me Katrina though, for some reason that name never suited me.

Now, if you're still interested - because hey, it's interesting to me. My mom's folks got all upset that they weren't in on the naming business for me, so she appeased them with my middle name. Okay here's where it can get confusing.

My great-grandmother's name was Marguerite Grace (last name was Evans - I'm convinced I'm related somehow to Edge, but that's another thread!)

My grandmother's name is Mary Lee
My mother's name is Linda Lea (but still pronounced "Lee)

So she took that "Lee" tradition and put "Grace" in front of it, dropped an "e" and came up with Graclea. All in all, it is quite nice - Trina Graclea. Looks weird, and I didn't even know how to spell my middle name until I was in 7th grade (kept spelling it Gracelea). But it's pronounced "Grace-lee".

I was almost named Holly. Now my mom has a cat by that name.

If I had been a boy, I was told that Steven was being considered.
