My full name is Erin Irene Dwight. Obviously my last name came from one of my parents. In my case, the traditional one, my father. My first name also came from my father. He was a real science-fiction geek and loved the show ‘Buck Rogers-in the 25th Century’. Even more than the premise, he loved the actress on the program named Erin Gray. He thought she was gorgeous and felt her name suited her. So for his little princess he wanted such a name. My middle name is the middle name of my grandmother, my father’s mother. It’s coincidentally the name of the street my father’s family lived on in Southgate, MI. So I’m my father’s daughter in more ways than one it seems. Thanks for the name Dad. It’s lovely.
