I was born Michael Trevor Eastham on March 13th, 1979. The name has not changed.
2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?
This is something I've contemplated many a year. I've determined that only by way of genetic manipulation, sudden chromosomal change or surgical procedeure would I change my name from it's current incarnation. At that point, it would become Erica, which would have been my given name if my bits had been different. But seeing as that all's rather unlikely, things shall remain the same.
3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)
The name wasn't David. That was the major determining factor for my name. There were already four David Easthams at the time, and, when my paternal grandmother suggested the name, my parents simultaneously said "No." It is for this action that I vow to never name a child of mine David... Though by my luck and fate my child will then marry someone and hypenate their name to David-Eastham. And all will be lost.
4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?
I love women's names as a whole. There are memories and thoughts and conotations that go along with so many that very few I've heard grate on me. Amongst my favorites is Rhiannon, which rolls off my mind like an aria. Others are blanking from my mind currently, but that's because it's 5-freaking-thirty in the morn.
5. Is the analysis of your name at kabalarians.com accurate? How or how isn't it?
Here it is, with corrective HTML.
Your name of Michael gives you a clever mind, good business judgment, a sense of responsibility, and an appreciation of the finer things of life. You are serious-minded and
not inclined to make light of things even in little ways, and in your younger years you had more mature interests than others your age. Home and family mean a great deal to you and it is natural that you should desire the security of a peaceful, settled home environment where you can enjoy the companionship of family and friends. Whatever you set out to accomplish you do your very best to complete in accordance with what you consider to be right. In the home you assume your responsibilities capably, having the self-confidence to form your own opinions and make your own decisions. Others can rely on you; once you have given your word you will do your utmost to fulfil a responsibility. However, there is a tendency to be a little too independent in your thinking and it is difficult for you to accept the help of others when you should.
So, otherwise, rather accurate.
