Name

A N tapas n E t T E
Thanks MarySue. I "flicked" around until I got this combination that I liked (it took about a minute, I am not that patient). The exercise made me think how I really like my name - thank you 'rents. I am named after my paternal grandmother and great-grandmother. The name is derived from the French, which I like and is probably the most likely reason I kept taking French, even through college. At some point it used to be the world-wide "business" language - probably in the 1800's, but I bought it - ooooh Benicio Del Toro - anywhoo. My name is quite unique - I knew 2 other girls in the 6 grades of high school with my name, and no one in elementary school, and no one I knew in college. My cousin even named her girl Annetta, so she must like me at least a little (because she's got to think of her crazy cousin Boo). Of course, my nickname is Boo. I don't know where I got that from, except babies really like 'Peek A Boo' and I must've especially liked it - or something. I like my nick name too.

Cool letters. I like your name too.

I like my name except I knew a lot with Rachel. Rachel Si, Rachel Ste, and Rachel Sta...we were all in the same grade k-4 until I changed schools. Crazy, eh?

Boo is the best. My friend Amber asked me about it, like if we really called you Boo. Yes, we do! Love it! Go Boo Boo!

I love your name. It's so pretty and yet friendly sounding. So many pretty names sound snotty.

Glad you liked this; I like the shrubbery A best in your name. Very horticultural.
