Thank you to Stephen Tremp , C.M. Brown, Elise Fallson and Mark Koopmans for hosting this fun bloghop.
Here is what it’s about: An opportunity to re-introduce ourselves to the ever-expanding blogging community. Simply take a moment and tell us something interesting about yourself. Anything. It can be about writing. Or blogging. Or a hidden talent. Perhaps you’re in the Witness Protection Program. Feel free to keep your post short. This is meant to be a quick and fun Blogfest.
My name is Suzi. Yes, my given name. (That seems to surprise a lot of people.)
Not Susan, Sue, Suzanne, Sue, Suz, or Suzie Q.
And if you call me one of the names from the above line, and you’re not a good friend or family, I’ll roll my eyes inwardly, because you weren’t paying attention when I told you my name.
But I won’t correct you.
My parents wanted to be different I guess, so they named me about the least used form of Suzi. (Others are Suzie, Suzy, Susie, Suze ) So that means that basically, I ALWAYS have to spell my name out because nobody gets it right.
Growing up, I probably only knew of a few other Suzi’s (and they were actually spelled differently.) I had none in my grade.
I used to hate it. I don’t anymore.
So what about you? Do you have a common or uncommon name? And do you like it?
