A Bipolar Name
My last name is just about the coolest name an american can have. My first name on the other hand is rather disappointing. It isn't that it is hard to say, or that it's overly weird, it's just that it's so darn common. I could be standing in a group of people of 100 and almost guarantee that there is another James there, whether he goes by something else or not. I find this really Annoying. My last name, however is very cool because it is just about the most symbolic and majestic animal there is. The Eagle. It sounds native american does it not? Truthfully though my family thinks it was acquired in England and brought over when my ancestors crossed the pond. Another name I get from England is my middle name Howland, which actually has appeared spontaneously on both sides of my family but is most notably passed down from John Howland, one of the original pilgrims.
