Also my daughter's middle name. It was her great grandma's name; we were driving out for my uncle's funeral when we got word my grandpa had also kicked. Then before we could tell grandma she was pregnant (her last words to me were "you're too old to have a baby!") she kicked, too.

Oh, well. If nothing else, it saved on funeral expenses.

Just as long as your first name isn't Faith

...I may have dug myself a hole here

That name would be somewhat ironic. Name is not Faith, though I've known one. Would an atheist named Faith want to change her name? Depends on the person I guess. I went by my middle name for a while. Then I switched back. "Hope" is actually a family tradition-name.

I suppose there can be an atheist named Faith that has faith in humanity, but then again, who in our generation isn't misanthropic?
