What's in a Name?

We are in the middle of a big weekend crop over at the Nook and the theme is Family Reunion!  So many fun and creative challenges!  I love Nook crops because we always go all out!

My challenge is to put someone's name in the spotlight!  Tell the story behind your name or even the meaning!  I was supposed to be a Heather.  But became a Stacey.  It was a popular name in the seventies and there was even a barbie with the name!  Hmmm...with that said, I have never been totally fond of it! 

Stacey means "resurrection", which is actually fitting because I am in a continous state of reflection and change.  I think opportunities present themselves for a reason and many times, you are given the chance to be reborn.  Every time it happens, you move closer to who you really are! 

I guess Stacey is not so bad.

For my challenge, I did a layout about my kid's names and what they mean!  Boy, do they really fit!

Steve and I wanted old-fashioned names for the kids, sturdy and strong, yet unique! 

What is the story behind your name or a person's name who you love?  There is a layout there waiting to happen!

P.S.  Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments yesterday!  I feel so supported in this community!  My head is still spinning with happiness and awe!
