according to

for example, why would a parent want to name their child joy?! (haha I know ask mine) Seriously, I think its a bit weird and kinda unusual.
Joy is just everywhere!!!
Believe it or not, when I went out today, I saw about >10 different products using the term 'Joy' as part of their slogan, advertising and even branding (the dish washing detergent).
[it just make my head grew bigger - ego!]

and when I blog hop or whatsoever, you see people using the word 'joy'.
and my point is that why would parents want to name a child a WORD??

My mommy says: "stupid is a bad word!" and daddy says: "dress simply, or else like Christmas tree; what fashion fashion fashion, be yourself!" (my personal favourite quotes from me parents)
not the point - they say its because - some long story - about being born near Christmas and in town with banners of JOY flown everywhere.

so.. JOYs OUT THERE - WHY DID YOUR PARENTS NAMED YOU JOY??? - do you really live up to your name??

another question, are all the Joy(s) out there the same, happy-go-lucky, jovial, girl/guy?
tell me.

xoxo, ♥
