Find Out What Your Name Would be if You Were Born Today
My name is Cathy. Not Katherine, Kathleen or Katie, just plain ole' Cathy. It's spelled with a "c" because my mother said she couldn't make a good looking "k". I don't mind my name and my parents had it picked out long before I was born, but I often wonder what their second choice might have been. Now, thanks to TIME magazine, I can find out and so can you!
My parents had wanted a second child shortly after my sister was born, but I didn't come until they gave up almost nine years later. By that time another relative in Ireland had had a baby and named her Katherine. Not wanting to give up the name they like so much, they named me Cathy. But, what could it have been?
TIME magazine has a way for you to take your given name and show you what your name would have been today. They basically see where your name is currently ranked today.
I did it and I would have been Madeline. Interesting!!! Ken, my co-host would have been Jaxon, I think that fits him.
You try it:
It will even give you what your name would have been from the 1800's to now!
