Tiffany. I'm glad my name is Shelby, because my name is unisex.

At first I thought that said "Peony," which would be a pretty name.

I was almost named Richard but my father named me after a mythological beast like a lion that is very placid and laid back unless it is annoyed in which case it becomes extremely ferocious.

I am named Richard. :)

I was nearly called Mark, but my surname is McCarthy and it was decided that the alliteration of 'Mark McCarthy' reminded my Mum too much of Ronald Reagan, so I was changed to a Richard.

If I was to be a girl I was to be called Kathryn, and when my sister came along five years later she was given that name instead.

Aparently my mother expected me to be a girl (there are a lot of boys in my family so she thought it was time for a girl) and I would have been Elizabeth.

I always wished I was named Alexander.

My parents had arguments when I was five over the proper spelling of Elizabeth (it's my middle name). My mother insisted it was spelled Elisabeth, but my father wanted Elizabeth. :) They chose the "z" version after awhile.

A Peony is a flower (like Rose, Petunia, Heather, Violet, ect). It can be an actual name too.

Peony is the national flower of China and is associated i think with health.

Not previously heard of Peony. I don't believe I would name a girl Agapanthus or Strezlekia either :lol:
