    What we're you named after? (if you were named after anybody/thing)
    My first name is Dakota
    I was named after Dakota rifles and so it was natural for me to have one

    So post away!

    My mother was originaly planning to name me Michael Kevin. Another family member used that first and middle for her son, so mom reversed them in mine.
    Dad's first name is also Kevin. She Picked Michael so I would not be a junior. I am just glad It was not James, Jeff, or Justin! Had I been a girl it would have been Michelle Lynn. Michelle for a friend that passed on, Lynn because it is my dad's middle name.

    My first name comes from a close friend my mom grew up with who died in vietnam. My middle name is my fathers first name. My sons middle name is my first name. You get the pattern. Its works that way right on down the family tree.

    I'm of Sicilian descent. I’ve got three first names from various grandparents and my mother’s maiden & father’s last name. Five names! When I visited my parent’s ‘village’ many years ago and gave my full name, everybody knew exactly who I was. When given in the correct order, allows one to know which branch of which families someone is a descendant of, if you know the ‘code’.
