I’ve never liked my name. In the second grade, I tried to change it to my middle name, which shall remain, ahem, nameless. It’s a lot better, but still not one I would have willingly chosen. Momma was having none of that. If she’d wanted my middle name to be my first name, she’d have made it my first name! I questioned my mother, Mildred Louise, why she chose Wanda. Turns out she hated her name, too and wanted me to have a pretty, unusual name. It’s pretty unusual, but I don’t think of it as pretty. She loved the name. But why couldn’t I be a Carol or a Debbie or a Jane? “Too common”, was her answer. And I have to say, I like the name Carol, but I’ve had four Carols very close to me in my life and many more not as close.
With no further adeu, adoo, adu, ????? here it is – with my with my ever so witty and amusing comments added.
|You Are Enchanting and Artful||***Hmmm. So far, so good.|
| You are very charming… dangerously so. You have the potential to break a lot of hearts.
You know how what you want, how to get it, and that you will get it.
You have the power to rule the world. Let’s hope you’re a benevolent dictator!
*** OK. I’ll accept that. Maybe not all that true, but I’ll take it.
You are usually the best at everything … you strive for perfection.
***Huh???? Ummm….. how about none of the above?
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.
You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
***Baaaahahahahahahahahaha! In that active imagination mentioned above!
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
***Did they accidentally mix someone else’s thing with mine?
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.
***She shrugs. I don’t much think that’s me, either. Dominant personality? I kinda enjoy blending into the background. Stubborn? In certain areas, but I usually just go whichever way the wind blows. Headstrong? Uh, define headstrong.
So there you have it. My momma chose the wrong name. It doesn’t seem to fit. Maybe I should keep trying and see which name actually does fit my personality.
