Did Your Spirit Self Pick Your Name?’s “Daily Post” put out its daily challenge this morning:

Write about your first name: Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself?

This is a recycled prompt that I’ve done at least twice already through the years so I’ll abstain from answering it today. I will however tell you a weird story about a guy who was crazy about names. I once had a friend years ago who asked me if I knew I had chosen my name before I was born. I think he was citing something about “Numerology” at the time. I told him no, my parents chose my name to which he replied, “Ah, but that’s just it YOU chose your parents!” That conversation ended abruptly. It takes all kinds I suppose.

Professor/Tutor/Dad/Husband/Son. My favorite horror movie is probably going to be a toss up between Tusk and Insidious. Atmospheric Horror is my favorite subgenre. I also post news articles on politics and the occasional blog post on things other than horror movies.

Outstanding. I wish your conversation had not ended there. I would like to have known how he reached such a strange conclusion.
