1.... Named after the singer Brenda Lee.
2... My middle name is Marie after my paternal grandmother.
3...I'm still enjoying my married name after 27 years (on March 22nd)!
4...Maiden name was Wise--my husband always says I was Wise until I married him!
5...One definition of Brenda is Dark Haired Raven. I really don't fancy being named after a bird but I have always had very dark hair...now if only I could fly!
6...If I'd have been the first born I'm pretty sure I would have been named Jackie after my dad Jack.
7...For many years to some family & friends my nickname has been Bean--trust me, you don't want to know the whole story behind the name. Let's just say it involved pinto beans, Mexican food and church (I swear it wasn't me!!!) Seriously.
8...My husband calls me Sweetheart...
9...and it really sounds funny to me when he calls me Brenda!
10...My titles include Sweetheart, Mom, Mommy, Aunt Brenda, Aunt Bean, Beaner (slang for Bean--see #7 (it really wasn't me!), Bren, Brendy, Hey You! and hopefully Friend.
11...It sounds really strange when I hear myself say my name.
12...I can't think of another Brenda that I personally know off the top of my head.
13...I would like to get to know some more Brendas out in blog land...anymore Brendas out there?
