Have you ever had anything named after you?


Growing up, I had a street named after me, LOL ...true story. When the city decided to expand the neighborhood, they made a new street to run alongside our home. We then lived on a corner. I remember as a small child when the city officials came knocking on our door wearing their suits. I was the oldest of four children. They asked my mother what my name was and then I had a street named after me. However, they did not spell it the way I spell my name, so I never felt like it was quite my street. I could not find the best topic for this question ... Thank you for answering.

    Hi TheChaiiChi, Oh, yes, I understand on that one. Actually, I was named after my two grandmothers. One on my first name and the other for my middle name.

    Hi sweet Sparklea, Oh, that is so precious and special!!! I know it was certainly the greatest and most wonderful surprise ever! I would have cried too, sweet woman. Grandmothers play an important role in the life of their grandchildren no doubt.
