Trip.......didn't Love story come out in 1970???? I'm sure it came out before my son was born & he was born in 1971........don't confuse me Trip!!! I do that way too easily!!!!!!
I was suppose to be Mary Jane........Glad my father didn't like his sister....Jane....that much then......my initials would of been MJB......coffee here on my coast....<S> The 2 oldest have no middle names & the 2 youngest do....always said my parents couldn't afford middle names when they were born......<S>
Another name story! My mothers maiden name was Berry. As I said I was named for my grandmothers. My mother married and I was born. When I grew up my husbands last name was Berry. My grand mother was delighted as it made my name Laura Berry like hers.

Why do people use the same names over and over in the same family? Aren't there enough names out there to choose from? When I was married to my first husband, between his family and mine, my kids had 2 Auntie Lindas, 2 Uncle Dereks, 2 Uncle Rogers, 2 Auntie Heathers, and 2 Uncle Kevins. It was a bit ridiculous!
Thanks Trip for starting this thread, it's been fun!
