Today’s Challenge: Were you named after anyone?
Eh, not really a fan of today’s challenge. For one thing, it’s a closed-ended question. If I were feeling a little more sarcastic today I might just write “Nope” and call the post finished.
So, yeah. Nope, not named after anyone. My name is Christi, of course, and my parents chose the name because it means “Follower of Christ.” My faith is central in my life, so I do love the meaning behind my name. I have to say, though, Christi is just one of those names that has a million spelling options and no one ever guesses right.
Cristy Cristi Christy Kristy Kristi Kristie
Since we live in Texas I usually just tell people it’s spelled like Corpus Christi. Which works, unless people don’t know how to spell that either. By that point, I just decide it’s pointless and that being Kristy on my Starbucks hot chocolate order won’t hurt a bit.
LOL – I feel your ‘pain’ about the spelling, I get Tami and Tammie all the time
– I was actually named after a character in a movie ‘Tammy’ (but my given name is Tamara, because my grandparents didn’t speak English and Tammy was too hard for them to pronounce) – Sandra Dee played the role of Tammy and my mom actually wanted to name me Sandra Dee but my Dad didn’t like that. My cousin and aunt actually sang the song “Tammy’s in Love” from the movie at my wedding!
I’ve never heard of that movie, but now I will have to look into it – and that’s very sweet about the song!
too funny. I LOVE Corpus Christi
Ok, you made me laugh. I’m guessing you’re right that Starbucks cup names are not a battle worth fighting over.
as a Katie it’s amazing how many ways I have seen it spelled. By now, I’ve just given up too.
I would always go with your way of spelling it! I can’t imagine spelling Katie “wrong”!
