october 7: what is my name?

my name. kelsi. my name has two origins, old english and irish. the old english version means “victorious ship.” hmmm. interesting. the irish version means “to be brave.” also interesting.

with the help of my friend, google, i did a name analysis. here is what the results were for my first name.

- the name of kelsi creates a very versatile and creative nature.
- you are quick-minded and have the freedom of expression to mix easily with people.
- because your feelings and desires are so changeable, you are never satisfied with conditions as they are.
(hmm didn’t i just talk about this being a problem yesterday for me? yes, i did.)
- you seek change in order to have the opportunity for travel, new experiences, and new friends and associates.
- you find it difficult to systematize your efforts and to fulfill your obligations and plans as you are not inclined to apply yourself consistently to a job to reach your goals.
(hello. fat person. stick to your workout plan consistently please.)
- although you appear positive, you inwardly lack self-confidence and will-power.
(do i actually fool anyone?)
- although the name kelsi creates an active mind and a restless urge to explore new ideas, we emphasize that it causes procrastination, lack of confidence, and the inability to realize your goals and ambitions.

before i married my last name was wilson. then i married. it still is wilson. no paperwork required! yes, i found the perfect guy for me AND we shared the same last name. no we are not related. at all. did you know “wilson” is the eighth most common last name in the united states? i know this because we checked on date 2.

in reality we avoided a huge argument. i was and still am confident that i would not have changed my last name when we got married had he a different last name. i can write an entire blog about my many reasons but i won’t bore you. my dear husband was and still is confident that he would have insisted i change my name. well, there you go. an argument sidelined for, well, forever. we will never know who would have won. (honestly i think we all know who would have won! wink, wink) but we never had to go there.

on our honeymoon in alaska.

we both won. i didn’t have to change my name and hand over my identity and he has a wife with the same last name as him. win win.

so wilson. wilson is both english and scottish. so there you go. my name.

so tell me, what is the meaning of yours?
