My mom saw my name on General Hospital (the soap) and liked it...

Afterwards, I became addicted for a spell :)

Only my middle name. It is the name my grandmother and great-grandmother on both sides had as a first name - Mary.

My daddy's name was John Thomas. I have a brother Kevin John and one Brian Thomas.

My mother's name was Elizabeth Ann. I have a sister June Elizabeth and one Margaret Ann.

My grandfather and his brothers never had a middle name. So one day they all decided to use the same middle name for all of them ( as a joke). Apparently, my parents didnt know this history, and gave me the same middle name as my grandfather, only to learn that it was one big joke. They got laughed at, but kept the name.
