I also hate it when I tell people my name at a restaurant and they write down "Don." How many female "Dons" do you know?
I have come to termswith my name. But, you know in school when you'd have to look up the meaning behind your names - Dawn means "daybreak, sunrise." Umm....duh - boooooring. I guess because my name is actually a word in use for the English language - my meaning is NO surprise. But...if we're talking about disposition and personality:
"sunrise" as in "sunshine"
as in "happy" = Dawn...don't you agree?
There are 460 other Dawn Campbells in the world. I went from being the sole Dawn Majercin to being 1 of 460. Yuck...original is SO much better! Not that I don't like Campbell - because I do, after all, it's super easy to pronounce. Just knowing I was the one and only was kind of fun. Kind of like going from a mom and pop coffee shop to a Starbucks - from a small quaint cafe to a chain.
What about you - how many of you are there in the world?
