Connie Francis...a real major beauty in my mom's day<br />

I was named after the greek god of beauty and love Aphrodite(afro-dity is how you pronounce it)
A great aunt, my parent's hoped she'd leave them money by naming after her, she didn't leave them a bean! And I'm stuck with an awful name!
Well, you kind of exposed your name, didn't you!!! :))<br />
I was not named after anyone! My father chose for me two horrible names, but my mum was like, you know what, we are not gonna screw up her future from now!!! Then, my mum chose for me my name which you know and it is the name of a beautiful Arabic gazelle!<br />
I do like my name!
my mother AND grandmother. some people like having a family name, but please - three people in the same household with the same name?? what, we could only afford one name?? i had to be "Little Lucinda" until i was 30?? 10 minutes to figure out who a phone call was for?? my mom usually used her middle name, though, so everyone knew her as Nancy.
Lucinda is such a pretty name. ^_^
it is - that's why it's my pseudonym ;)
Brandon Lee, even though I have huge respect for Bruce Lee as a martial artist and therefore a familial respect for Brandon Lee, I have boycotted watching anything he's ever done because of this reason.

Was named after a bartender- I guess that must be why I like alcohol so much haha.... funny thing is that neither of my parents drink much at all yet they named me after a bartender. She tended bar at their date spot back in the day.
Paul and Stephen. After a Saint and a Martyr.
i was named after a celeb which sucks because shes no classic so its just plain pathetic.
I was named after my uncle, I don't mind having a "boy's" name, but it does kind of suck that nobody in the fam has talked to said uncle for like ten years because he's a douche bag.
