I swear it was like lightening. The inspiration for this post struck and I must write it! Although... I'm not too sure what exactly I intend to ramble on about this topic besides the fact I get slightly irritated when people assume my name ends in an I. (Chris do NOT even think about tormenting me about it. You give me enough hell with Daeva.)
I'm not even sure why it matters. I am used to people butchering my maiden name: Beaudin. The most common misspelling for that it Bodin. Next comes Beaudoin which isn't far off because there are people who spell it that way. Not my family though but it does make us wonder if there is some distant relation to those Beaudoins.
Maybe it's because it's my name. Names can be special to us. We can be proud of the heritage behind our names or the meaning. I have no idea the meaning behind my name; never looked it up. It's my name though and that makes it special to me.
There are some downsides to my name. I am not a big fan of Peppermint Patty from Peanuts and dislike being called that. Cow Patty is also not appreciated. Patty Cake, Fish Patty, Hamburger Patty, references to St. Patrick's Day, just about anything you can tack Patty onto I'd rather you wouldn't.
I also think I'm going to end on this note. Check back tomorrow for the last post of the challenge which I am not writing. I'm going to have a guest and contest with a book to give away. All you have to do is comment to enter!
