It's all in the name

Trisha and I were talking yesterday about the names our parents were going to give us if we were boys. Trisha was going to be named Timothy Patrick. I was going to be named Clint (oh yes, after Mr. Eastwood!)

I am not sure what Jason's name was going to be if he was a girl, however I do know that his mom and dad were not in agreement with Jason. Rich dad wanted to have a son named Jesse. Sharon prevailed and named him Jason, however this did not stop Rich from calling Jason Jesse as a kid! "Jesse, hand me that wrench!" was apparently not uncommon! I will have to let Jason elaborate more on this if he'd like to!

So...What was your name supposed to be if you were the opposite sex?

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Clint? That is hilarious. Seriously, too funny.

Jason, I am glad to hear that Jason won out.

Each time I have asked, my parents have always say FRED! Somehow, I don't belive them. I was named Anne Patricia after my God-Mother, Patricia Anne. So had I been born a boy and they stuck with the same family tradition...I think my name would have been Roman Steven.

too funny, I guess I do remember dad calling him Jesse...wow...cant say I really know about my name..I do think they both agreed on Sarah, but not sure if they had a boy name picked...??...mom?...

by the way..I see neither of us have the weekend pics up yet :)

Yeah...we need to work on getting those pics up! I like Jason to do it b/c his computer does it faster and he can change the size of the photos. Maybe I'll just have to suck it up and bring the camera to work tommorow!

I'll keep looking for your pics, Sarah! so, what is wrong with your car???

I was supposed to be Michael, but my aunt used that name when she had a son before my Mom...it's ok Mom, I like Jason. I'm not sure what I would have been named if a girl....maybe Mulva?

I'd have to say that Clint would take the cake!

I'd just be Micheal. Boring

andrea was a girl.. we both wanted a girl soooo bad that we never picked out a boys name just in case......
and we both loved andrea as the name for our girl...
jason, well, we actually never picked out a girls name for hime either, just because we wanted a boy so bad... at first dad wanted jeremy but i definitely said a big noooo to that one.. then he wanted jesse...no to that one too... since he had picked andreas name, i picked jason for our boy...he agreed but continued to call jason..."jesse" throughout his boyhood years..
i would call him "jace" for short..

and our sarah jeanie... well, we actually had a boys name picked out for her... anthony stewart...
after richs dad, who had died one day before sarahs due date.. had to postpone going in for the funeral..
we both loved "sarah" for our little princess... and the "jeanie" just popped out of nowhere..

thoughts to ponder on........

Hey, Clint isn't so bad...just be glad it wasn't Howard Elmer or something...God knew you were going to be a girl from the beginning anyway!

Love, MOM
