One thing I forgot to mention about my birth name. My mother didn't know that Jermaine was Old English for 'Sprout' until I told her. My sister's name is LaToya and I have a brother named Michael--which is my biological father's name. All three names of ours (me and my siblings) are TOTALLY coincidental!
My sister's original name was supposed to be Nicole (which is my sister Grace's middle name now), but my mom forgot and went with the second choice--LaToya. I didn't even know I had a brother OR father named Michael, until I was goin' on 21 years of age. Which is funny because, when LaToya and I were younger, people used to ask us, "Where's Tito?" or the more popular, "Where's Michael?" Referencing us to the Jackson Five. I used to hate it! Now I have to deal with it, because we found Michael, LOL.
I also know a guy who's aunts were Jackson fanatics and got to choose his name. He's named Michael Jermaine Poole. LOL. He's the only one with the name Jermaine that I shared the original meaning of the name to.
