The question on JB*JB's blog for this week is:
Were you named after anybody?
Nope! Although my Mum wanted to call me Lucy at first so I remained the Baby With No Name for around 10 days until she decided on Ruth.
I decided on the names for both my boys although Simon likes to think he picked Samuel's name (we watched the 51st State with Samuel L Jackson in when I was very close to producing the child and he liked the name Samuel) as I decided as soon as we knew it was a boy that it would be Samuel. And Jacob I picked too as I liked it.
Both boys have 2 middle names which use family names for those who have died. Bit morbid, but I liked the names anyway!
