What's in my name?


For Wordfull Wednesday today, we were asked to explain our first name. Why we have it and what it means.

My name is Aimee. It is the french form of the name Amy and means beloved. I've always loved that it is french! And spelled just a little differently. My parents really liked the name Amy, but then saw it spelled Aimee and liked that even better. Growing up I rarely ever heard of anyone else named Aimee. Just lots of Amy's. My mom even cut out a picture from the newspaper in 1983 showing the family of Ferdinand Marcos, including a niece named Aimee who looked like she was about my age. I still have the clipping. In the last year or so it seems that I've run into all kinds of Aimee's. Even one with the same maiden name!

I always liked my unique name too, all together, anyway, it's kind of unique. Then, on my mission a lady wrote me with the EXACT same name, first, middle, last. She also sent me $10 so I liked her immediately :)

French is still one of my favorite languages! What a great definition of your name!

How funny that we both have French names...maybe I should have put that in my post.
You were the first person I knew who spelled your name the way you do. Since then however I see it a lot. It looks like you started a new way of spelling it (it had to be you because you're so wonderful!).
