What's in a name? Part 2
Like I said in my last post, I would tell you of how my sister got her name. My dad's name is John and my mom's name is Tonia. They used their 2 names to come up with my sister's name - Jonaia. Using the equivalent "Jon" from "Jonathan", an "a" for "and", and then using the last 2 letters of my mom's name "ia", my parents came up with "Jonaia". Her middle name is after my dad's grandma, Elda Rosa Roth. "Rose" sounded better to them than "Rosa". It was quite interesting that they named her "Jonaia Rose" and she was born on Valentine's Day. She now has a daughter of her own, Cheyanne Maria, and lives with my mom in MA.
