The Name Issue

Posted by Hahli Husky , Jan 09 2010 · 368 views

The Game of Life
At my church, a lot of people mix up my name with my sister's, and vice-versa. She gets called "Becca" and I get called "Jessica." That's understandable, even our parents do that. However, those that are less-than-whole in the mind and/or just-plain-not-thinking tend to think we're both named Jessica. They'll look at me and say "Hi, Jessica!" then turn to my sister and say "Hi, Jessica!" They know we're sisters.

But my sister and I just smile and say, "That's right, my name is Jessica and her name is Jessica. Our parents named us after each other."

Very few people are mixing us up now. There are still those few who say, very seriously, "Well, that makes it easy! Your parents are smart."

It's all part of an entertaining Sunday.

Of course, it's also fun when people think my mom, Jessica and I are triplets. Or that I'm married to my dad. Or that my brother is Jessica's boyfriend. You guys get things like this?

That is probably the most confusing choice of names I've ever seen ^^ (In a good way)

Crazy crazy world...

Only name issue I've ever had is when I was put on an all-girl bowling team because the person who set it up, who hadn't seen me, thought my name was Erin, not Aaron.

On a semi-related note, though our names are never mixed up, my sister (who is ten years older than I am) and I are constantly being asked by people if we're twins. We look so similar (besides the fact I'm like a head taller and a guy) it's scary.

Well apparently I looked a lot like some German exchange student that was at our school a couple of years ago. So at the start of last year one of the people in the computer center asked if I had "gone home" over the summer break.

I was like "… yes?"

My brother and I are always getting mixed up, though I'm three years older. It happens a lot at my church.

One of my best friends and I look scarily alike. People think that we're twins.

Two of my sisters got (and still do to a lesser extent) mixed up all the time. Even when one of them dyed her hair blue. tongue.gif

For some reason some people call me Aaron, even the ones who don't know that my sister's name is Erin.

my folks had one simple name for whenever they were clearly upset. A combination of my name, my older sister's name, and my older brother's name, from oldest to youngest. It usually got the message across.

Me and my brother look very similar, especially when I'm wearing my glasses (he wears them all the time). Sometimes, I'll have a short exchange with somebody and only realize that they thought I was him afterward.

The weird thing is that it never happens to him.

The closest I've got is my cousin and her new husband, where a person who just met her family first thought that her husband was married to her mother, then to her sister, before finally actually meeting her and figuring it out.

Since I've never met anyone with my name or anything close to it, that's all I can say. tongue.gif

I used to get this this thing where people asked were me and my brother twins. And we'd both go "...no...". I mean, my brother is two years younger than me, has bright orange hair (mine is brown) and generally has a different build to me.
I haven't got it said in a while though because now I'm having a growth spurt and there's a good height difference between us.

Goodness alone knows what people must be thinking when me and my elderly dad are walking arm in arm through the streets to/from the grocery store when I'm visiting my parents.

The only thing that makes me and my brother are our eye colour. Some people think I'm his girlfriend and my best friend is my brother! (He's blond too.)

When we were little, everybody thought Madeleine and I were twins.

I don't really get that much anymore since I'm like forty feet taller than her now =P

People still think my brother and I are twins....yet I'm short and brown haired and he's way tall and blonde and I'm almost two years older than him. It makes no sense to where they're getting this idea.
