Beth, a simple name.
Derived from Elizabeth.
Karen, from my mom.
Smith, from my husband.
Maybe people do not remember me, because my name is Beth.
I wonder if I was Lizzie...
Lizzie Borden took an ax,
gave her father forty whacks.
I tried it out for a while in third grade.
I liked to think I was named after Queen Elizabeth.
I think I would need to wear my tiara every day.
In high school some people thought I was Bethann Angie.
One of my good friends was Angie.
People always said "Beth and Angie".
I morphed into Bethann Angie.
*Tiffany with no last name.
Don't those young girls know
you are supposed to have to have a last name.
Hi! I'm Kimberly.
A friend of a friend thought my name was Bethward.
She combined my first name and maiden name.
I was introduced at a party as Bethward.
How does that even make sense?
I always wanted to be named Finn.
I thought that would be the coolest name for a grandma.
Finn, can we make cookies?
Come with Finn and we will paint a picture.
The crazy lady with all of the cats.
How many cats does she have?
Black cats, gray cats, striped cats.
Come here kitty, kitty.
I have grown to love my name.
It is not exciting.
It is not memorable,
but it is me.
*From the movie, "You've Got Mail"
