When I looked in the Chicago phone book and found all kinds of people with first names like Jas, Thos and Chas, I asked my Mom how come we didn't know anybody with those names. ... That's when I learned about abbreviations.
When I was young, I asked my mother why she didn't have a middle name. She told me that her family was poor and couldn't afford one. I figured that parents paid for each letter on the birth certificate... my mother still loves to confuse me.
I used to believe there was a girl named "Alyssa Naimes" because on the announcements one morning they said "A LIST OF NAMES will be hung on the bulletin board." I ran down to the bulletin board because i thought they hung a girl on it!
I used to think that poly anna was a person
When I was about 5 my older sister came home and she had to analyse the poem "The Raven" since that was my name I thought it was dedicated to me. I told all the kids at school how I had a poem written especially for me. That was until I met another girl named Raven.....
My name is Aline and when I was younger my brother had a poster of an Alien on the wall and under it it had the word Alien written on it. I thought that was my name and for quite awhile and I was secretly an Alien spy on a mission to take over the world. I remember I used to try to contact my planet by running around outside with a paper sign I made. They never did come back for me......:(
My son, now 10 just found out today that he is not a nut, he thought that there was a kind of nut called macaDAMIAN nuts... cute.
When I was little I used to think that people named Candy would give you candy if you talked to them.
when I was in kindergarten a girl I knew told me that she could only be my friend if I was a christian. Never having heard the term before I asked her what a christian was. She told me that a christian is someone who has the same middle name as their mom. Since my mom and I share the same middle name, I decided that I must be a christian and that the girl and I would be friends.
My niece publicly chastised her mother church one day for introducing her to someone named Dick, much to the embarrassment of her mother and the gentleman. My niece thought her mother was referring to the man by the slang term for male genitalia, not realizing that it is an actual name.
I was 15 when my youngest brother was born. When he was 3, by sheer coincidence the milkman, the garbage man,the guy who ran the deli, and the dry cleaner man were all named George. David got the idea that all male strangers were named "George" (as in "The George at the ice cream store gave me a cookie.") The rest of us kids thought it was funny, and for years we addressed all unintroduced males as "George". You'd be surprised how many men will happily answer to George!
There's a popular book in Poland called "Mr. Kleks Academy". It's a bit Potter-ish to say the truth: the Professor, Mr. Kleks teaches his young and eager students how to fly a carpet or understand the speech of dogs. When I was young I desperately wanted to attend the school some day. Unfortunately, only those whose name started with "A" had a chance to take part in this ecceptional educational adventure.
My parents gave me the name of Michael. At six, it caused me to fall apart from them a little :)
Now, when I'm 19 I come to realise that I shouldn't have quarelled with them... My second name is Antony :)
I used to believe that Walt Disney was "Walk Disney". I imagined him spending his entie day walking up and down the sidewalks of Disneyland.
Both my brother and I used to think that T-Roy was the coolest name you could have. We used to fight over it constantly whenever we pretended to be someone else.
when I was 4 I didn't want to come down to see my dads friend because his name was Barney and I thought he was dinosaur
My name is Mira. People used to say "Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" to me and I always thought they wanted to hang me on a wall because I was pretty or cute or something!!!
WHEN I WAS 7 years i wanded why kids had names like barny who would name there kid after a t.v. show with a big dinosor thats puple and green with spots!!!!!! then i thought maybe they just loved the name barny?
When I was little I used to think that if your name was Christian that you were somehow more religious and spiritual than everyone else. You were "special". If your name was Christian, then you were related to God and you knew things that no one else did. Why else would you be named after a religion if you weren't related to God? Christian was a pretty popular name in my area. When my sister brought home a friend named Christy, I thought it was short for Christian and that she was going to spy on me and tell God all the bad things I did.
