I used to think that your name was your destiny, so whatever your name meant, you had to become/witness. Once I knew a kid named Cayden, which means round or lumpy, and I told him that some day he would turn into a potato... I got in trouble for that!

Some one...

My middle name is Viola, but for the longest time, I thought it was Vagina. I was sure all little girls had the middle name Vagina, so that doctors would be sure we were girls.

It confused me, however, that my brother's middle name was Joseph and not Penis.

As a young child (maybe around 8) in the 90's I had a teenage cousin named Tonya with frizzy blonde hair that lived in Oregon. I didn't know much about her other than that. From watching TV, I became convinced that my cousin was actually Tonya Harding, and that my family just never talked about it because they were too ashamed of her.

I thought my real name was Marmite and that I was only called Rosie to stop others getting me confused with marmite spread.
My Grandad would always say 'My Mate Marmite' to me when I was really young.
I wasn't aware that it was an advertising slogan.

When I was like 3 or 4, I thought people were born with their name. For example, if you're name was Jenny, when you were born, you had a little sign around your neck with "Jenny" written on it! Don't ask me where I came up with this. I was a weird child.

I once thought of most names in the world, there were three people with that name, one who goes to school, one who doesn't go to school, and one who is an adult. But for rare names there was only one person with that name.

I used to think the name Bob was just a name by itself, since I couldn't ever think of a name it could possibly be short for. It always confused me how any loving parent could name a child Bob.

So I came up with the brilliant idea that since the name Rob was short for Robert, that Bob would be short for...yes, Bobert. I held this belief seriously for a solid five years.

When I was young people would always say,"You don't know Jack Shit!"

I would say, "No, I don't."

Who was Jack and why would I care if he shit.Was he a relative or a brother I didn't know about that they gave up for adoption. I pondered these things.
