what's in a name?

Ever since my name change, November has become my NATO last name. I have changed to Alpha November from Alpha Papa, which was almost a cute Big Daddy nickname, but totally doesn't suite me. Everyone loves November {mostly because it's so close to December}, so now I feel more loved.

Speaking of loved, that's what Amanda means. Loved, Lovely, Worthy of Love. If you can name your kid something that doesn't mean "bitter" {my middle name, Marie}, I think you should. Names should be happy, shouldn't they? I agree with Anne of Green Gables who said, "I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage."

Yes, I'd choose Anne over Mr. Shakespeare almost any day.
