Writing Assignment for July 18, 2012 Story Circle Safety Harbor Library
By Sheila McNaughton – Guest Blogger
Everyone has a name. Some of us are called by the name we were giving at birth, or our middle name or a combination or abbreviation of it. Others by a nickname someone along the line created.
We decide on the names of our children:
A name from the family: my father was Denver Homer. He made us all promise never to name any of our children after him.
A dear friend, someone you knew and loved
In honor of someone who has died: After a friend lost his son to cancer other friends found out they were pregnant. They asked if they could name their child Jordan.
A celebrity: a friend named her son Keanu after Keanu Reeves. He goes by KC
The city or place where they were conceived.
An object: Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter is Apple
So many names and so many reasons why that name was picked by you or for you or someone you know. Your assignment in 600 words or less is to tell the story about how someone got their name; your own, your child, a friend, a family member.
