My Middle Name
Leahy- Irish, means hero (that's exciting)
- •So my mum's family is super Irish, like off the boat immigrants of northern Boston area, so their last name was Leahy and then it became my middle name! Goes perfectly with the very Irish "Bridget", it was almost "Brigid"
- •When I was little everyone had "Elizabeth" and "Marie" NO ONE had heard of this weird "Leahy" name
- •I hated my middle name for years UNTIL
- •About halfway through high school I realized how unique and cool and connected to family it was
- •I am now so obsessed that I want to name one of my children Leahy
- •Yay for Irish heritage!
