I never liked my name !!!

I've come to like my name more since I'm older. I guess it's grown onto me or I to it. I didn't realize it originated in Latin America or Greece. I'm Irish/English.

Hated my name when I was a child, mostly because both siblings had names starting with a J so I felt left out, also my sister had a nasty way of saying Barbie. Recently a future in-law informed me they would spell it Barbra because that's the way they will pronounce it! I've gotten used to the name but can't say I'm a fan.
