7. I love my own name because it's the same as an early feminist & the feminine version of Dad's name;

but I support everyone's freedom to choose. In some worldwide cultures this is the norm. Even as a little girl, I always knew exactly what I'd name a son if I ever had one. Which I did. Fortunately he liked it too. Plain, simple, easy to spell. Utterly classic.

Not having grandkids I've had to exercise my penchant for naming on various dogs over the years. They don't get a choice in the matter, except I do try to watch and 'listen' 8 days first, then hope I guess right. I think they come to us already having names of their own.
