    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.

    Dad's 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.

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

    I know quite a few people who didn't like their first name, and so chose to use their middle name. A friend of mine who used to be an avid soccer player feared that this would happen with his son. You see, he decided to name his son after his father, Emanuel. His solution was to...
