I am Licia (other variations Li, Licetta, Feli), short for "Felicia" but please don't call me by the full name... it gives me the same effect as the sound of a chalkboard being scratched when I hear that.... Not that it is an ugly name in general, but it is just so not me, gives me the same feeling as if my wearing a refined business suit, high heels and panty hoses... it is just SO NOT ME...

I really miss my old pet name "Charlie" though... I was always Charlie before I came to Italy. A pet name given when I was small, because I was a kid just like Charlie Brown, a goofy kid for whom everything goes wrong. I had to put it in the backshelf because the Italian folks think it odd, as they believe it is not a name for a girl.... but I feel much more like "Charlie" than (ugh...yuck...)"Felicia"!!!!

Years later when we moved back to my childhood county, I told Buck about her. He thought I was making her name up. Until...he saw her name in the local obituary. Then he took me seriously. What in the H-E-double toothpicks were HER parents thinking?

Hyacinth here! A spring flower in countries that have spring, but a very nasty weed in lakes(with cute flowers though!)! I cringe everytime I tell people from East Africa my name! I also have to make them believe that It really is my name and I am not joking.The weed is damaging the Lake Victoria.
