    Dad's Name

    My parents weren't exactly expecting a baby when they got me, so they weren't prepared yet with a list of baby names. I ended up with a first name that was way to similar to my father's name, and a name my DAD got off a SOAP OPERA. Whenever anyone would be talking to me, or...

    It's My Parent's Fault.

    They had two names chosen for me, one of which they preferred.  But the names sounded better together in reverse order, so the preferred one became the middle one.  Bit of a hassle at times, but the first name just isn't me, so I stick with the name I've always used.

    I Don't, But My Friend Wanted To Make Sure This Didn't Happen

    Thinking Of Legally Changing My Name.

    Team Lindsay!

    My full name is Jessica Lindsay Briar. I go by either Jessica or Lindsay. I don't mind which you call me. But for some reason, I kinda like Lindsay more. I feel more like a Lindsay.

    Only In the Sca

    I chose to be Michael Gerard, and added the surname of Curtememorie (AngloFrench for "short memory").  But there are so many Michaels that I've long been introducing myself as "I'm Lord Gerard."  And it IS my confirmation name, too.
