A Rose By Any Other Name

Hello, my friends!Β 

Today I would like to discuss a topic that is very near and dear to my heart: my name.

The reason this topic is on my mind, is that I was recently called yet another name. It was pretty cute, I have to say, since the one who deemed it my name is a four-year-old little girl. πŸ™‚

I love my name. Honest to goodness, I am glad that I was born with the name that I have and I will not change any part of it! (Except my last name, of course. I love it, but I am perfectly fine with changing it one day. πŸ˜‰

Over my 19 years of life I have been called many different things by many different people. Some titles I like, some not so much.

Before I write the plethora of names I have been called (in a good way, no worries.), please note that unless you are a child, I do not appreciate being given a nickname that is an alteration of my actual name.

Before further adieu, in no specific order, here are the names I have been called! πŸ˜€

1) Savannah- my given name. Also the name I prefer to be called. πŸ™‚ I was named after the movie “Savannah Smiles”.

2) Susie- given to me by a boy I was friends with long ago who couldn’t say my name.

3) SaPookie- one of my many childhood family nicknames.

4) Chu-Chu (pronounced “Shoo-Shoo”)- called by my momma after we watched “If A Man Answers”- an old Sandra Dee movie.

4) Shay, or sometimes Shay-Shay- also my momma.

5) Sabana- think my name, but in baby talk.

6) Multiple spellings of my name (in writing)- NOT MY NAME. I WILL CORRECT YOU.

7) Poison Ivy- My dear friend The Joker gave me that nickname after a visit to Six Flags.

8) Ariel- self explanatory. Β (Also, my favorite Disney Princess for most of my life.

9) Giselle- mainly started after I dressed up as Giselle for Halloween one year. Also my current favorite Disney Princess.

10) Savvy- One of my uncles.

11) Vannah- This one… I don’t like this one a lot… Or even a little… It’s best not to call me it.

12) Espuhvannah- a 4 year old a few years ago.

13) Princess

14) Nanna- My momma.

15) nanr!- My brother, Andrew.

16) Suh-nanna- various family members.

17) Suh-nanr!- ditto.

18) Sav- I am weirdly okay with this one.

And last, but not least, the name I was called today by a 4 year old girl:

19) Sofina. Pretty, huh? Thank you, little girl for making me smile. πŸ™‚

So there you have it! 19 nicknames for my 19 years of life! I wasn’t planning on it being that cool, but it is. πŸ˜€

(Okay, so I probably couldΒ come up with a few more involving my hair, but I wanna leave it at 19. Maybe I’ll add to it next year when I am 20? Hmm…)

Goodnight, ma dears!

Thank you for sitting through another one of my long winded posts that really don’t have anything to do with anything! πŸ˜€
