Just read the double name post and it got me wondering about famous names.

I don't personally know anyone with a double name, but I do know a couple of "famous names". When I was a kid we lived next door to Ronald McDonald (many years before Macca's came into being) and a friends husband is Dean Martin.

Do you know anybody who has a famous name?

Well, if anyone knows the name of the person that made "You are My Sunshine" famous and is credited with writing it, his name was Jimmie Davis and had been Governor of Louisiana for two nonconsecutive terms.

I currently know TWO other people named Jimmie Davis and spell it that way. I actually met the former governor Jimmie Davis when I was around 11. He was actually born and raised close to where I lived for 7 years while growing up. He died in 2000 at the age of 101.

Oh, and "You are My Sunshine" is one of Louisiana's TWO state songs. Actually there are 4 in all, one is a state march song and forgot what type song the other one is!

ETA: When I was in the first through the fourth grades, one of the girls in the other class was named Elizabeth Taylor.

Not a famous name, but I knew a girl named Blue Green. Her name was Mary Blue, nicknamed "Blue" and married a guy with the last name "Green." She was "Blue Green."

My maiden name is Smith....Jacqueline Smith. LOL Of course, I'm old enough that I wasn't named after Jaclyn Smith. I also went my Jaci (pronounced like Jackie).

When I was younger it bugged the crud out of me. In fact, in my early 20s I broke up with a guy that twice bought me her perfume because he thought it was the funniest thing....well, that and the fact he was a total loser!

I remember....I worked with a Samantha Stevens, and she named her daughter Tabitha.
She had never watched Bewitched (no tv growing up) and somebody told her Tabitha would be a pretty name if she had a girl.UGH we tried to tell her about Bewitched, but she still named her daughter Tabitha.

One of my good friends is named Kristen Stewart, only she has two i's instead of and i and an e. She is not amused. Plus she works in a high school, so many people comment on it.


I just don't see why people think I'm too patronizing (that means I treat them as if they were stupid.)

My maiden name is Julia Roberts. Pretty Woman was released in 1990; I went to college in 1991. Julia Roberts was EVERYWHERE then. You can imagine how fun that was.

Before she became famous, I planned to keep my maiden name when I got married, but after a few years of dealing with that, I was THRILLED to take DH's name
