Would you believe it; some people think my mom is a man when they see her name? My Mom says her name, Lani, always confuses other people. They rarely pronounce it correctly and when she was in school, they used to assign her to boy’s physical education classes because they thought her name was a boy’s name. Her name is special -- her dad chose it because he and her mom wanted to visit Hawaii and her name is Hawaiian.
When you think of my name, what do you think of? Do you think of a girl or do you think of Harley Davidson motorcycles? My mom says Harley Davisdson’s and girls don’t go together. My Mom and Dad talked a lot about my name before I came to live with them. My dad chose my name, Harley, because he used to ride a Harley. He thought it was a good name for a big German shepherd! And he knew a lot of men had this name and so it would fit me.
What about your name? What does it tell others about you?
