I loved that name when I was young [In reply to] Can't Post

I still think it's pretty, but when I was little, I wanted to be named Audra myself.Smile I used to watch The Big Valley which had a charcter named Audra who was played by a young Linda Evens. Her character was a bit wimpy; I thought the mother was much cooler (she was played by Barabra Stanwick who had always played strong women), but I loved the name Audra. I would never have made fun of you. Smile

I go by my middle name's nick name... [In reply to] Can't Post

"Nic". I really like it a lot but, I hate it when I tell people my name is Nic and they instantly say "Nikki?". It happens pretty much every time but, I try not to let it bother me. It's short for Nicholette, which is just a mouthful. I like it but, much prefer to be called Nic. In a way it makes me extremely thankful for the people who will call me Nic from the beginning without questioning. Almost as if our relationship is getting off on the right foot because they listen to what I say and not try to change "who I am." It's always awkward when well meaning people insult you basically by saying that you're too pretty to be called "just Nic." Thank you...I think. Haha.

My first name is Michele, after my aunt. My mom didn't really want to call me that but, last minute dad asked if they could. Mom said yes but, she told him she wouldn't call me that. I'm not fond of Michele and almost wish it had two Ls instead of one but, that's kind of nitpicky. It's FUN to troll people when they ask what my middle name is. Evil

Aw, thanks Zarabia! [In reply to] Can't Post

The Big Valley is actually how my parents decided on Audra, even though my Granny's name was Audrey. If they stuck directly with my grandparents' names, I would have been Audrey Annie. So they compromised and called me Audra Ann instead. Plus, my dad loves westerns.
I don't remember The Big Valley from childhood though my dad watches it on cable sometimes nowadays. I grew up watching reruns of Bonanza, Wagon Train, and The Rifleman. I had such a crush on the boy from the Rifleman until I realized he was really my parents' age. Little Joe was cute but I couldn't see him as anyone younger than Laura's dad from Little House and the angel from Highway to Heaven, so he was OLD to me!

Haha, it was the same with me [In reply to] Can't Post

I watched Big Valley re-runs on weekday afternoons after cartoons. It was a bit confusing to see The Six Million Dollar Man looking so young in the afternoons on Big Valley, and then see a ten-year-older looking Heath (his character on Big Valley) on Six Million Dollar Man. Same with Little Joe and Pa.

I've felt very ambivalent about my name throughout my life. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sometimes i think it's alright, sometimes i think it's kind of boring. There was even a period as a kid where i considered going by my middle name, and my mom was cool with it, but nothing ever came of it. But i've never felt too strongly either way about it. I have come to realize, though, that it does suit me, and i actually do like it when certain people, who seem to like my name, call me by my name.

So yeah, my name suits me.

It's Kevin, by the way.
