What's in a Name?

So as Bryan and I entered the security line at Atlanta airport the other night, the TSA guy compared my ticket to my drivers license.
Normal, right?
Well, what's not normal is that he kept looking at my license and then looking at me... looking at my license and then looking at me.
You could tell that he was hiding in laughter, which was actually really funny.
I said "yep, it's me"
My picture is recent and looks just like me, so I didn't really know what was going on, but it was funny none-the-less.
He said something along the lines of, "Oh, I know it's you. I've just never seen so many a's and n's in a name before."
He laughed and so did I.
I get a lot of comments on my name, and I mean A LOT of comments... but have never heard that one before.
And he's SOOOO right!
I have a bazillion a's and n's in my name.
The other night I was on the phone with my mom.
I told her that I had just realized and informed Bryan that our future children will only have 2 uncles and their names will be Uncle Tim and Uncle Jim.
Come on now?
That's a hilarious coincidence!
My mom proceeded to tell me that my dad's name is Tim Jim.
I was like "huh???????"
She said that she brought it up to my grandma once, asking her if she realized that she named him Tim Jim.
My dad's name is Timothy James.
I find all of this ridiculously funny
Oh, by the way, my name is Kaitlyn Dianne (I'll leave my last name out), but it has A LOT of a's and n's in it :)


  1. Everything is in a name! As a teacher, I have heard it all! And sometimes I just wanna wack parents in the face for the idiot concoctions they come up with thinking they are making their kids names all "unique" by adding way to many extra letters and such..then the poor child can't spell their name when they get to school much less pronounce it correctly back to the teacher when they ask how to say their name!!!! That is by far the WORST!

  2. Did you keep your maiden name? Your married name doesn't have any N's so just curious if you didn't change it?


I love hearing from you and always try to respond to your comments!
