My par­ents chose my name, Mary L____ because 4 out of my 5 great grand­moth­ers’ names were Mary. My mid­dle name, which I used as a dou­ble name when I was younger, is L____, which was the maiden name of one of my great-grandmothers. Most of the time I go by Mary, but at home I go by Mary L____. I do not have a nick­name, but up until 2nd grade I went by Mary L____. Occa­sion­ally my name suits me cause Mary means Sea of Bit­ter­ness and I can be bit­ter some­times! jk. I am 12 years old.

  • Mary is only twelve but she has already found a lot of con­nec­tions through her name. It pro­vides her a link with the past, which gives her the feel­ing of being part of a great chain of being. She knows the mean­ing of her name, which she uses to eval­u­ate her own emo­tional reac­tions, which is star­tlingly mature for a twelve year old. At a very young age, Mary is using her name to estab­lish phys­i­cal links and to pro­vide a psy­cho­log­i­cal eval­u­a­tion of her­self. At twelve, she serves as an inspi­ra­tion for all of us.
