I have another blog written but I decided to keep it for a few days, it is something I have felt inspired to blog about but I am still tweaking it right now, I really want to write it the way I was touched by it myself.
So today I decided to talk about where my name comes from, my mother was from Salem Oregon, so she heard a name once which is Polynesian spelled Lajuanna that she wanted to give to one of her daughters. The name was bestowed upon me but my father refused to spell it the way my mother wanted it and he spelled it Louanna.
Moving forward, apparently I had trouble saying my name and came up with a version that I never liked, I was four years old at the time; so my parents continued to call me by that name until I went to high school. I decided in grade 9 that when I went to high school I was going with my real name, since I really despised the other name. So when I went into the guidance councilor I told him, he asked me how I spelled it, I had never seen the correct spelling so I said L-A-U-N-N-A.
A year later I went to get my SIN and I found out the correct spelling of my name but by this time I was used to spelling it my way so I kept it. I must say over the years my name has been said every which way possible, so funny. Most people call me LuLu at work and everyone else learns to say my name which actually sounds like La-Wanna. I know, I know, I know... lol. That looks nothing like the way I spell it but I am really fond of how I spell my name now:)
I love my name, apparently it means beautiful flower, which I think is really sweet. Plus I love the way it sounds when it is said properly, I think it is just a very pretty name and very unique, exactly like me. I love being unique and quirky, I don't want to be like everybody else which I am grateful I have arrived.
