WHAT MY MOM ALMOST NAMED ME

  1. Perspicacity
    Mom was on bed rest for the last trimester, and I think she went a bit stir-crazy, because she decided this was an excellent baby name. She was going to call me Perci for short. I'm not sure what changed her mind, but I am grateful for it.
  2. Edward
    This was going to be my name if I were a boy. Interestingly, when my brother was born a few years later, he was not named Edward.
