My real name is Gabrielle and my mom gave me that name because it was her grand-mother name. Even if I would have been a boy they would have call me that name. I'm proud of my name since I knew where it came from because I know my mom loved her grand-mother so much.

I agree to Joyce. Gabrielle, your name is really nice! Well, my name is Aletheia. I don't know but my mom's friend name me for her. She said that my name's in the Bible. It's a greek word and it means 'truth'. I'm really proud of it. It some kinda sounds unique.

Awe that was sweet of your mom to name you after your great grandmother. And what a pretty name it is. My name is Brenda Lee. I use Lee as my middle name and just go by Brenda most of the time. My mom liked country music and one of her favorite singers was BrendaLee so thats what she named me.

Yes, they say that my name came from a combination of the name of my grandmother and grandfather in my father side. It is a beautiful name and I love it.
