Re: Are you happy with your name?
I guess my moniker speaks for itself. I didn't care much for it when I was young, because I always went to school with at least one or two girls named Terri or Teri. But there were always more boys named Terry so it wasn't a huge deal.
Then when I was 15 or 16 my dad sat me down and explained to me how I got my name. I was supposed to be named John, which is both my dad and grandpa's name. That was the plan anyway. But a couple months before I was born my dad was on duty in Vietnam, clearing a path through the jungle when his unit was fired on. Dad was lucky and wasn't hurt, but his best friend was killed just a couple feet from where Dad was standing. His best friend's name was Terry, and I've felt honored to have that name ever since Dad told me how I got it.
