What’s in a name…

In today’s society there are so many different names, I mean there was before but now…it’s as if people are getting a bit too adventurous with choosing names for their children. Names that we didn’t even class as people’s names before. Like Apple and North and even Ransom (yes like a ransom note). I’m not saying this is necessarily a bad thing…but when it comes to me choosing names, I think I’ll be more inclined to go with some ‘standard’ baby names.

I’m not sure whether this is because of my name being quite a generic name or not. My first name is Natalie, and my middle name is Jane. Quite simple and popular names. The amount of people who have Jane as a middle name in England! Oofft there’s a lot, trust me. But I really don’t mind. I like my name. I like having a middle name too, just for the fact that if I didn’t have one my initials alone would be NO. Which isn’t bad until your signing an agreement and it looks like you don’t agree to any of it…Awkward.

Anyway each to their own…

By any other name would smell as sweet.” – Juliet, Romeo & Juliet.

Hello…

Quote of the day!

A simple hello can lead to a million things…

This quote has so much truth. I mean this is how most things start! By just having the courage to say hello to someone new. Yes it’s scary, but it could lead to so much! A new relationship, a new career opportunity, a new friendship or maybe even just some new knowledge…learning something you didn’t already know! But you won’t know…unless you say hello.  In today’s society, we just don’t do it as much as we should. And in my opinion this is how we restrict ourselves…so be brave, be the first to speak, and just simply say ‘hello’.
