YOU WERE ALMOST NAMED B'ELANNA?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
yeah xD v v close to it. my parents made bets with both my brother and i when we were born- with my brother, dad said if it was a boy he got to name it, and if it was a girl mom got to name it. day comes, brother pops out, dad gets to name him. kind of. dad wants to name him fester, mom said no. my brother is named bryce instead (though i wish he’d been named fester. woulda been interesting to see how he’d turned out- angrier or actually humble or nice.)
anyway, cue five years later when i’m the bun in the oven and they make the same bet. mom bets boy, dad bets girl, winner gets to name. i pop out, grandma (dad’s mom) looks at my face and says “THATS A GIRL”, dad almost passes out (true story, he grew up surrounded by women 24/7 since he was like 12 or 13, he knew what was coming) and so dad wins the bet again. he wants B’elanna but mom said no star trek. then he says Lucrecia (great aunt’s name, also to confuse teachers) and mom says no again. so… I wound up Alanah. i don’t actually know where it came from. but.
i was very close to being B’elanna just because of a bet my parents made while i was in the womb lmfaoo if mom hadn’t have said no, i would have been uvu
