First Name

My first name is Gerri, and I am the only girl I know with that name. Everyone always says Gary, But it is Gerri. Like Tom and Jerry, the cat and mouse. I was named after my uncle who was hit by a train on his was to see me be born. I know what a great story. But really, it is better then having a name that everyone has. But at graduation when I was being called across the stage, the lady had said Gary. I was so upset, It is Gerri and that u in my last name that she said was really suppose to be an a. God she is so stupid. I wanted to beat the crap out of her. I only had one teacher say it right, and she was the yearbook teacher. And I am not sure why it is not that hard.

What a beautiful meaning. I love names like that. I wish they didn't murder your name with such a beautiful meaning.

For Julia....really? It is not that hard. And they come up with all those names? I got Cherry once from this older man but I just thought he was heard of hearing and let it go. But really, my neighboor girl is named Julia and that was on the list of names I might name my daughter. #3 . : )
