There was a boy at my elementary school named Ashley. I always thought he was a girl, as he was slender with large blue eyes and short blonde curls. Until he moved away in fourth grade I thought he was a she and he was always invited to my slumber parties, and would come. It wasn't until fifth grade that my best friend Carly pointed out that Ashley was a boy.

I hope I didn't make him gay with those makeovers...

PLEASE don't name your sons Ashley, no matter how much you love the movie Gone with the Wind!!

I was probably in second or third grade when my mother was reading the book Jane Eyre for a class, and I asked her what it was about. She gave me a brief outline of the story, and I was very interested, particularly in the part about the crazy lady up in the attic. I asked why she went crazy, and my mother told me it was because her name was Bertha. I completely believed this (wouldn't YOU go crazy, if your name was Bertha?), but my mother didn't realize I did until she heard me telling a friend, in all sincerity, the story EXACTLY as it was told to me. It just cracked her up.

My name is Heather Louise and when I was younger I had never heard of an older woman named Heather, however I HAD known ALOT of old woman named Louise. I thought that when you got older you had to go by your middle name and that all the old women named Louise used to be young Heathers.

i once asked my dad how grownups got their signatures because I really wanted to have one. He told me you went to a signature bank and paid ten dollars and they gave you one. He thought I knew he was joking - until I asked him the next day where the closest one was!

When my little sister Heather was 4 (she's now 22), she LOVED the name Ashley. She used to go around telling people "My name was really Ashley before it was Heather." I don't know how long she believed this.

This is actaully a belief from a boy I used to babysit who spent a lot of time playing on computers. When asked how to spell his name (which was also the passcode for the computer),he would smile and proceed to spell it out...
"M-I-C-H-A-E-L-Enter".
He believed until he was 7 or 8 that his name ended with the letter "Enter".
