    I always like these kind of lists. I wasn’t named after anyone, my dad went to register me and couldn’t spell my name which was Jacqueline, so he went for a drink to help and think. He met my uncle and they had several drinks and went to register me together. My uncle had a brother called Jack so they started to spell Jacqueline Jack which is very wrong and got stuck on the K instead of the Q. My dad stopped there and decided to call me Kay instead. My mother was not happy when he returned with a birth certificate having change my name.

      Oh Kay, I love this! It reminds me of the story of my brothers name, which was supposed to have been Elijah & would have fit right in with me , Reannon & my sister jemmima but our dad decided at the last minute to change it to Robert after his dad! Whenever we list all 6 kids names everyone always says “ Robert? Where does that fit in!?” ?
