What is your name? How did your name come about?
I love my name, well sometimes, it wasn't so fun growing up when children say "Bobbie is a boys name!" well actually the name is Bobbie-Jean I say!! And then with a name like that people ask are my parents American? NO - they aren't, actually we are like 5 generation Australian.
So the story is that as my father passed away when my mother was 4 months pregnant, they hadn't discussed many names. If I had been a boy - I would have ended up with his name in memory - but whoops I was a girl. So I ended up with one of the few names they had discussed - Bobbie - very trendy for the late 70's!! It was hyphenated and I was also given my fathers mothers name - Jean. So there you go - Bobbie-Jean. I must say I don't think I ever met anyone with the same name growing up, so I never got mixed up with anyone else!! Namesake Jean and the Bobbie-Jean
Then there is the last name debarcle!! If a person passes away - then they can't say if they wanted to be on the birth certificate - therefore as he died before I was born - it wasn't possible at that time to have his name on my birth certificate - therefore I couldn't have his last name - so I got my mothers maiden name. Then she got married to my stepdad and we were all sealed in the temple, and changed my last name by depol. Anyways - so I have been through 3 last names, now 4 with my married name - I rock don't I?
