How I feel about my name
don't remember having to learn my name but I
am sure it was difficult for me. I mean, how
could it not be. It is a difficult name.
I was six or seven I really wanted to have a different
name, I was old enough to know that my name was
different. My name was hard. People couldn't say
it especially teachers on the first day of school and I decided
I liked my middle name much better. And even later
in middle school, when I had six different classes
and still none of the teachers could pronounce
it right or decided to call my middle or last
name instead. I thought, maybe I should
tell people to call me Nikki for Nicole and forget
this whole Thursall business. Probably what
Gretchen or Gertrude decided too.
few years later, I got over it and decided I liked
being different and at least my name wasn't Mary
or Sue or Jennifer. There are a lot of Jennifers
out there. Sorry, Jennifer. My name was unique!
have definitely decided I Iike my name
and am even proud of it. However, it is difficult
for some people to remember or pronounce or
spell and sometimes I wonder if I am even saying
WhooHoo! I know another Thursall!
get thoroughly excited when I find my name somewhere
or when someone tells me they know a Thursall.
I even looked a Thursall up on the internet
a few years ago and called her. She thought
I was someone from her work playing a joke on
her cause she had never met anyone with her
name either. It was all very fun and made
me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I am hoping
from making this site that I will meet similar
Thursalls or Thursals.
