What’s in a name? I always like to know the meaning of names, and looked very carefully at the meanings of our children’s names before settling on them. That was after I discovered that a friend’s son’s name meant ‘broken nose’ – I always wondered why anybody would choose that name!!!
My name means ‘pearl’.
I’m named after my mother and a great-grandmother, so I’m pretty sure that my parents didn’t think about the meaning, just carried on a family tradition.
So why the discussion about names – well, Dawn over at As Sweet as Cinnamon put out the challenge to bloggers asking why they named their blog what they did - and is doing a give-away along with it! Head on over and join in the fun.
To answer the challenge – how did I come up with the blog name ‘Pieces on My Mind’? Well, I started it out as a primarily quilting blog, and looked for a word that would reflect quilting, but also wanted to be able to share about other aspects and happenings in my life – all those little pieces that make up my day and my quilts. Thus ‘pieces’. And then wanted to let readers know I’d be sharing various thoughts, ideas – and quilting – that came to mind. So there you have it!
Just another little piece of my mind! Blessings, Peg
