Johnny Belinda

My mother watched this movie when it came out. She decided that her next child would be Johnny or Belinda. Guess which child got the name?!
When I was about 13 years old, it came on The Late Show. Mama got me stay up and watch it with her so I could see where my name came from. I was not that interested in it at that time and was sleepy. Later, I wished I had watched it more closely. Then, in the 80's my sister taped it for me and sent it to me for me to watch. It is a good show. In the 80's or so, they made another one which is also good, but the original is the best, I believe. It is out on DVD now. Maybe I will order it one day!

Cool Belinda, it is nice to know how you came about getting your name, mine is pretty common for the year I was born, and my name prior to adoption was Saundra, I think it is very pretty, oh well I did not have a say in the matter.
Hugs my friend, and I would like to see that movie too, seems I did years ago.

I've never heard of this movie...you've made me curious!
My name is about as common as you can find for the year I was born, but I like it anyway. The other option for me was Julie, also nice, I think. Since I was coming after 4 boys, I don't think my parents even considered a boy name! LOL
