My name Alicia means Truthful One. I was named after my brothers' babysitter.

My nickname 'Yaya' was given to me by a baby I nannies for and it stuck!

I love how you added the UG-Lbc. I'm glad you mentioned what that stands for!

Ocean Girl said...

My name is a little complicated and a long-winded story. I wrote a post on it. Please look up "What is in a name" labelled My Grandfather's Stories and as for Ocean Girl, that was another post, "The Wordplay" under 1000 Things.

Tammy said...

My real name is Tamara...meaning Palm Tree - Strong and sturdy!

I hope I am strong because I
need strength for the Survivor game...great blog. I am just a newbie but am having fun. Stop in and say hi. (I am your newest follower)!

Nancy means "full of grace" which is true in regards to kindness/beauty/God's love, not so true in regards to dancing ability or agility in general.

I don't have a blog name, because I'm just not creative enough.

I love the name Jane. It's spunky.

Daffy said... clue what it means. It's not my real name - I just chose it because it seemed to fit well with the Batcrap Crazy stuff...

I think I may have to go google it.

I love the name Jane :O)

I love that pic, too; it really caught my eye in my reader. My name is Greek and means "stranger," I think. Dad just liked it, and Mom was just thrilled to finally have another girl after four boys in a row!haha

The photo you included is amazing. It looks like a flower.

My real name means, "the lame one".

Mama Kat said...

Such an amazing story you have. You were REUNITED with your birth parents after an international adoption!?! How did they even find your parents? Crazy! And beautiful.

Adoption Of Jane Ug-LBC said...

@Mama Kat: They promised my bio-mum they would write and update me her frequently on my life, and they kept that promise.

Interesting how you were named. My name means "pure" but don't know why it was chosen for me. Just know that if I had been a boy, I would have been named Keith or Kevin.
