    I have two bible names Abigail and Joanna my granny gave the names to my mother. Although I like Queen Abigail in the bible , I don't fancy the name Abigail too much but some people thinks its lovely . Did you ever had a feeling to change your name or wondered what went wrong with your parents when they were naming you? LOL

    My name was Lauren, but got called Poppy by my friends, mum and brothers from a young age, so I changed it legally to Poppy.  My dad wasn't too happy but he got used to it!  My sister is called Abbie, I think it's a nice name.

    I am proud of the names I was given at birth, and believe everyone should be.  My first name is of course from The Bible, David.  Also, this was the first name of my great grandfather on my father's side. My middle name McCalister is an old school kind of name and was my great grandfather's middle name on my mother's side.  My mother said she had the choice to either name me David McCalister or Floyd Washington, being a reverse of either the first and middle names. I am glad she chose David McCalister.  My last name Guffey had given me some grief when I was younger it was so different I got called a lot of names mostly guppie, which I could not stand, but I was taught not to get bullied and to stand up for myself and eventually that all went away.

      You are fine it is a Scottish name that goes back for centuries, was changed to McGuffey when my ancestors arrived in America and later just Guffey.  It is a common name in my area in NC because most of my ancestors settled in this area when arriving

    I never liked my name but as I got older, I realized it fits me somehow, and there was meaning and purpose in me being named that particular name and not any other. P.S. I learned that lesson after changing my name (legally) a few times, and finally changing it back at the age of 31. What a long and interesting journey it's been!
