31 Day Photo and Prompt Challenge - Day 17

Today's prompt from it's gravy, baby! is to post if you were named after anyone.

I was not named after anyone; however, it is my grandmother who named me.

My oldest daughter, Shelby, is named after Julia Robert's character in Steel Magnolias.

My nephew, Ozzy, is named after Ozzy Osbourne.

I have a niece who has the same middle name as me, Lynn. She was given that middle name because my sister said I don't come around very often and at least if she named her daughter with my middle name, she'd get a reminder of who I was. I'm not sure if I should've felt honored or not.

Tell me, are you named after anyone?

My Dad used to have a friend at work who's little girl was named Amy. He liked the name because it was easy to spell. My middle name is Dawn because I was born at Dawn.

I loved shelby :)

I was named after a song back in the 70's. The James Gang had a song called Alexis and that then became me :)

I was named after a soap opera star on I believe General Hospital :)

Although, my middle name was my grandmother's on my mom's side.

All in all, I love my name!
