6. READER'S CHOICE QUESTION #25 from Tara: How did your parents select your first name? Were you named after a particular friend/relative/fictional character or did they just like the name?
A. I was named after my cousin Cathy (she's Cathleen and I'm Catherine). Parents couldn't compromise on a middle name, so I got 2: Elaine Elizabeth. One of my profs in college actually laughed when he saw my name...he said I have one of the longest names he's ever seen (that he can pronounce, that is). Too funny. I do have 34 letter in my full name :)
