Well here goes, Emma wants to know
Were you named after anybody?
Umm right I'll try to reduce the length of my answer!
My name is Deanne, but my Dad went to register me and to say he'd had a tipple (few beverages) was an understatement!!!
He wanted to call me Dionne after Dionne Warwick!!!! but it came out Deanne... so all my life I have argued especially with teachers when they call out Diane, 'no sir its Deanne' to find my birth certificate and the actual spelling is DIANE on there - lol
Not impressed - although its better than Joanna which is what my Mum wanted to call me, believe me I am not a Joanna!!! Sounds too posh for me!! lol
Hope I havent bored you!
