One-Minute Writer - Name

Today's One-Minute Writing Prompt: Name

You've decided you want a new name--one that will reflect who you are. What is your new name?

I really wouldn't change my name - I have been Bobbi Dawn all my life and it suits my personality just fine. Even though I did shorten my name to just Bobbi when I was going through my divorce, I find it comforting when people from my past continue to call me Bobbi Dawn.

As a matter of fact, the way most people say my name it is like one long name: BobbiDawn. Bobbi Dawn refects who I am - I'm from Kentucky and most Southerners have two names. Plus, I was named after my Daddy, Bobby Gene.

Of course, I also like my porn name: V.V. Riverside. Classy, right??!!

Yeah, I know all about those "double" Southern names -- I'm still, at my advanced age, called "Margaret Lynn" by some relatives -- I hated that when I was little, now it doesn't bother me as much, though I prefer being just "Lynn".
