My first name comes from Brandon De Wilde, the actor who played the little boy in the movie Shane. My middle name comes from my maternal grandfather and also one of my uncles.

I don't know where my name came from, but I suspect I was named after a guy my mother dated at one time.

I think my name came from a friend of my moms, but her name was Bobbie I think. I am not sure. That's just what I was always told.

The short answer is, I was named after two people.

I was going to be Diane. My Dad particularly liked that name, that was the only reason. Then very shortly after I was born, I made some face or other that reminded him of Mum's brother, who had died the year before. Frank was much loved and much missed, and that was all it took to change their minds about my name. I was then going to be Frances Diane, but my brother (then 8) reminded them that his middle name is my Dad's name, so he figured mine should be Mum's name. (I love my middle name because it is Mum's, but I do not like to be called by it. A friend in highschool insisted on doing so, so now it only appears on official documents, and very few people know what it is, unless they knew Mum.)

I'm not named after anyone. I was supposed to be named Sara, but my mom's friend named her baby that a month before I was born so she changed her mind last minute. I don't even know how she decided to name me that.

I am named after my older sister who was still born. My parents named myself and my two brothers after their children that died as babies. My brothers are named after our older brother who was born 3 months premature and passed away 2 hrs after his birth. I never got to meet my siblings but I'm glad we were named in their memory.

I was definitely uniquely named at the time.....I was born 1970 in Texas and it was either Dallas or Cheyenne. Thank the socks I was born in, it was Cheyenne! All though I was still major picked on as a child, most people didn't even realize it was a capitol of a state and it has become all to common of a name now a days......
