I'm named after my mom's aunt, who was a really lovely lady.  She had a daughter who had spina bifida who died shortly after birth, and I have spina bifida, so I was probably more special to her than I realized at my young age.  She died when I was 7 or 8, probably.  We still go to her old house (now her daughter owns it) for our "cousins" reunion every year.  I loved her and her husband but I have some major guilt associated with her husband, who is also deceased.  I was a bit older when he passed away, and he had Alzheimer's and frankly that scared me.  I avoided him because I didn't know how to deal with it, and then he died.  I still feel terrible about that.

Sooo anyway, I love my middle name (which is Jean, by the way).  And I think it's cool that my husband has the same middle name, but it's the French pronounciation.
