Show and Tell Tuesday: What's in a Name!?

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals - It's all about explaining that name you were given on the date of your birth.

Erin Ashley

The story is this: Apparently my parents made television their hobby and name game of choice. At some point in my young life, I decided to ask about my name. I was named Erin because my parents both loved watching "The Waltons" and loved Erin's name from that. They also liked the name because of Erin Moran on "Happy Days." My dad chose my middle name - Ashley. He is a not so closet "Young and the Restless" fan when he's off on a Friday. He liked the name Ashley! The fun part is that there are quite a few girls named Erin who are around my age. I usually find myself asking the other Erin why her parents named her that. Inevitably it relates to "The Waltons." Thankful for that mountain!

Pretty soon I'll be changing my last name to Stache and dropping my middle name. I'll be changing that name because the plan is to get married to a pretty awesome Stache fella!


  1. My name came from the Walton's too! How funny!

  2. This must be where the Erin's who were named after The Waltons unite, as I too was named after Erin from The Waltons. Wow. Who knew it was such a thing?
