Interesting fact: When I was born, my mom actually had a few other names picked out for me. She had: Scarlett, Christina, and Shelby. But one night she was watching Star Trek, and she noticed the credits, Lt. Uhura played by the beautiful actress Nichelle Nichols. She loved the name and went with it.
So that morning, (idk the exact time, and mother hasn’t a clue either) at Detroits Hutzel Hospital, Nichelle Marie Parham was born.
And blah blah blah, fast forward to now…
I love my name and wouldn’t change it for anything other name in the world lol. My grandmother’s name is Michelle and my aunts name is Michelle also. My aunt Michelle is actually the one who bought me this shirt from her trip to New York. I did a little cutting and made it into a cute off the shoulder crop top.
But going back to my name… A lot of times when I would introduce myself to people, it’s like they always ask again as if I said it wrong. The conversation would go something like:
-“Hi my name is Lynda”
“Nice to meet you, I’m Nichelle”
They would pause “…Michelle?”
“It’s NICHELLE, not Michelle”
Another pause “…oh,ok…what a pretty name”
I can’t believe I just did a whole post on my name, :-/, anyways Happy Sunday luvs!
Thanks to my lovely mother for taking the pictures of me :-)
