bc @alexim likes to hear about these kinds of things & it's not completely boring :)
- •🌟MY NAME 🌟
- •my parents went through quite a long process in naming me
- •they finally narrowed it down to Lara Isabela and Maria Lara Isabelamy mom's name is Maria and her mom's maiden name is Lara
- •they ended up putting Maria Lara Isabela on the *initial* birth certificatemy parents intended to nickname me "Maia" but pronounced mah-ee-ah instead of maya.
- •but my name just didn't click with my face apparently
- •so instead after maybe a week, they finally came up with Carathey combined my mom's mom's name, Carmen, with her dad's, Raquel. so ca-ra!!
- •I feel bad for my dad... every potential name for me had to do with my mom's fam :(
- •🌟MY BROTHER'S NAME🌟
- •his story is significantly shorter.
- •when he came out, my parent immediately thought "Paco" was perfectmy parents are big fans of weird nicknames (thank u Philippines for all the weird names)
