It's All in a Name
Isn't it weird how everyone just sort of 'fits' their name? Have you ever met someone and thought... you just don’t look like a ________.
When my parents were trying to think of a name for me they had Jordan picked out for a boy and Sarah Lee picked out for a girl... thank goodness for my Dad who brilliantly came up with the idea to use Jordan for a boy or girl. Even though I am sure it would have been fun to hear "Nobody doesn't like Sarah Lee..." a bizillion times a day every day of my life; I love my name and feel like it is very fitting, but of course I am a little biased.
When my parents finally decided on Jordan for either sex people certainly had their opinions. From what I hear my aunt use to tell my mom what a horrible name Jordan was for a girl; my mom used to explain to her that she wasn't naming me to be Miss America, she was naming me to be a bank president. Did I ever mention I did pageants for 10 years ;)
Well, NOT THAT I AM PLANNING ON HAVING KIDS AAANNNYYYTTTIIIMMMEEE IN THE NEAR FUTURE; but now that I know who I am going to marry it is fun to talk about what our kids names will be. But it is hard being a dance teacher because the kids you teach can either make or break a name for you. For me it's really just girl names, but I feel bad for all you regular teachers out there bc it's probably both boy and girl names for y’all! But seriously, if you have a name picked out that you love and then a student comes in with the same name that always picks their nose or is ill behaved then it totally ruins that name for you! It's hard people - these are my future kids here!
So anyway, cute little Keegan at the studio, please stay cute and if anyone comes to enroll a child named Parker, please - oh pretty please, do not let them be a nose-picker!
So is there a funny story behind your name? Do tell?!
