Tell me about your name

  1. My first and middle names are Jessica Grace
  2. My mum wanted to name me loads of crazy things
    Like Isolda and Xanthe and Cleo but my dad said no
  3. I was going to be called Kiera or Lauren
    Kiera after the founder of the Labour Party (lol)
  4. Then I was born 10 weeks early
    My mum couldn't see me the first few hours after I was born so my dad went and told my mum I didn't look like a Kiera or a Lauren
  5. So they decided on Jessica
    It was first used in Shakespeare's The Merchant Of Venice, which I think is pretty cool
  6. They always knew Grace was the middle name
    Because they love the meaning of the word Grace and I think it's beautiful
  7. Most people don't call me Jessica though
    Mostly Jess or if I'm close to people or I've known them a long time Jessie
  8. Personally I love my name
    Hope you enjoyed reading this
