Oh Hi There I'm Brittany Lea
The Naming Process:
I almost named Chantal which no offense to any Chantals but I'm glad my parents picked Brittany instead. My mother was a huge fan of Rod Stewart (still is) and when she was pregnant with me he was with Britt Ekland. Mom liked the name and then she heard Brittany! So, I guess one could say I was named after Britt Ekland!
Land of the Britons, either Brittany or Britain. Brittany is a region in France. I think there is a dog breed named Brittany too because it from France.
Urban Dictionary Meaning...
Brittany = Popular, outgoing, loved by all, sometimes teased out of jealousy, loved by adults, kids love them too, smart, & funny.
"Wow, I wish I could date a Brittany."
"Sorry man, she's WAY out of your league."
Won't lie that meaning is pretty on point! Good Job UD
My main nickname over the years of course is Britt but then there is Bick/Bicky because my little sister could not say Brittany when she was little. It has stuck for years! I even had friends in high school call me Bick. Lets be honest I still get called Bick from time to time. My aunt Mary has called me Magoo my whole life! And yes, it comes from Mr. Magoo. Erica who can now say Brittany perfectly normally calls me Bree and Chase often calls me Aunty B just to pick on me for being his older sister.
Funny Name Stories:
Not sure I have any funny name stories! One of my old landlords used to call me Bethanny for two years! Honestly she would have a letter for me and see my name was Brittany and she still called me Bethanny!
The Middle Name:
My middle is Lea (pronounced Lee). I share my middle name with my aunt Mary and great aunt Nancy. I really like my middle name because I think it really goes well with my first name! Actually, I really like how my name, my sister's and brother's roll off the tonuge! Brittany Lea, Erica Laine and John Chase. I also like that I share something like a common name with some of my other family members.
And there you have it the story of my name! I'm happy I'm a Brittany Lea! Sometimes when I was younger to have a different name but over time I have grown to love my name and I wouldn't ever want another name. I think my parents did a pretty good job naming all of us :)
So what's in your name?
