my middle name
I do not have a middle name, although i've always wanted one. When I asked my Dad why this was so he told me that as we got married in the future our names would then be too long (we as in my 4 other sisters, me being in the middle) this bit of information always made me sad. He continued to tell me that if we were going to have middle names, we would have been named after our Great Grandmothers. Great grandmothers have pretty great names. For my family there is Thelma Gilpin, Norma Mickelson, Wanda Roos, Rose Olson, and Estella Olson. I always laughed when my dad pieced my sisters names together like Briana Themla or Nicole Norma but when my dad said my name would have been Kristen Rose I might have melted. I loved the way it sounded. Since I was a little girl I then on signed my name Kristen Rose and will continue to do so forever more.
