QotD: Also Known As

What other names did your parents consider for you?

I am fortunate to be blessed cursed with a name that people can't ever seem to pronounce right.  Thank you, mother.  You see, about 34 years ago, my parents had this discussion regarding what to name me.  My father wanted to name me something majestic.  Keep in mind that this is the early 70s and my parents liked the wacky tobaccky.  His choice?  First name, Sierra, middle name, Nevada.  Yes, like the mountains.

 

When I look back on this, sometimes I wish that Dad had won this war.  In his honor, I'm picking up and moving closer to those mountains.  Ok, that's not exactly true.  I am moving but the original purpose was not in his honor.  But it is now.
