A Rose by Any Other Name …



This day honors the seldom used middle name that often sets a person apart from others. Also known to alert you to the amount of trouble you are in when your mother uses it in conjucture with your first and last name.

Example : Cailean Emmett Stone! ! !

I’ve always been very proud of my name because it is unique and means something special to me. It is a name that is found in several people from both sides of my family, in various forms.

I love the way my mother named me and my siblings to have the same initials (JAA).  I have made it a tradition when I named my boys and gave them matching initials (CES).  It actually takes more thought and planning than people may think, especially if you pick each individual name for a particular reason. I don’t know how unique that is across the country, but it means something to my little family. 

Anntonette : English, highly praiseworthy. From a Roman clan name. Associated with the Greek anthos, meaning flower. Feminine for Anthony.
