No idea why, but I have always loved the name Savannah. Ever since I saw a pretty red headed little girl in my mom's 4 year old preschool class named Savannah years ago. I love it so much and yet...I didn't name any of my girls Savannah, lol.
I pick that name now for an answer to this question :)
I already DID change my 1st name. Im 41 now, when I was 20, my step dad adopted me (yes, its kinda old to be adopted, but bio dad molested me when I was little and I was actually just starting to deal with it in therapy, step dad had always been my "dad" anyway, since I was 5) and bio dad had given me my 1st name, which was Gina. I wanted to get rid of EVERYTHING having to do with him, so not only did I change my last name by being adopted, I changed my WHOLE name, so the name I choose/chose is Ashleigh :-)
The name I go by. My parents gave me a formal first name with no intention of calling me by it. They always call me by my nick name. If we could afford it I'd just legally change my name to my nick name. That's who I am.
