1. Are you named after anyone? If so, explain.
Doña Ximena, from El Cid, which I really should read some day. Although in Chile Jimena/Ximena is as common as Susan or Karen here, so it's not like that's the only place my parents had ever heard the name.

2. Do you have your children's names picked out already? If so, is there any significance?
I had my daughter's name picked out when I was little: Julia, for my mom. Never had a daughter, so I never got to use it. We settled on Daniel's name while I was in labour. Settled on Justin's name around when we found out he was going to be a boy.

3. If you were born a member of the opposite sex what would your name have been?
Rodrigo. Yes, I am eternally grateful to my vagina.

4. If you could re-name yourself what name would you pick and why?
I did rename myself, when I was 13. I had gone by my legal first name, which is conveniently the same in the three languages I speak (English, Spanish and French), but which I (inconveniently) deeply loathed. Went to my middle name, which baffles most people in Canada, though I made things a bit easier on myself by changing the spelling from the original Ximena to Jimena. Didn't really feel like having people call me Ex-ih-minna for the rest of my life.

When I was a kid I also wanted to be called Violet or Cindy. B'zuh?

5. Are there any mispronunciations/typos that people do w/ your name constantly?
JimEEEna instead of Jim-enna. Was never a big deal until the year I worked with a pompous tool (and blistering idiot) who insisted on calling me JimEEEna despite numerous corrections, then got mad at me when I finally corrected him in front of other people. Oh, and I didn't much appreciate the minister at my mom's funeral calling me that either throughout the whole ceremony, especially after Chris corrected him a couple of times.
