Definition of a name...

Ok, I am not sure how happy I am to have been dubbed "Nene" by Hannah, as I decided to Google the definition. Somehow, I was hoping it to be some sort of Aunt or honorary title for a woman, and instead I found this:

ne·ne (nn) KEY NOUN:
A rare wild goose (Branta sandvicensis) of the Hawaiian Islands, having a grayish-brown body with a black face. Also called Hawaiian goose .
ETYMOLOGY: Hawaiian nn, imitative of its cry

I most definately am NOT a goose, however, I would like to think I'm rare. I don't think the world could handle more than one of me. LOL So now we need to work on another name for me. Think it'll ever happen? Nah - guess I'm stuck with it. I'll just have to start acting a bit more goose-y. :D


  1. Hey - you ole' goose! Thats pretty funny actually! You know a child calls it like they see it!

    (knee slapper, knee slapper) LOL

  2. Ha ha ha... SO funny...... NOT!!!! She only calls me that because she couldn't say Anita, and she's already got an Oma and an Oma-two-mo. LOL

  3. so you're not a rare goose then? lol..its still cute :)
