On a hot and sunny columbus afternoon, when it came to my mind that i have never came to my right mind to question the meaning behind my name. It is like asking the question, “Why are the planets named the way they are?” I don’t really care, and I don’t really want to know, that is, not until this day…mystery uncovered. I decided it would be great if i asked my parents when i went downstair my mom was sitting in the living room, so i knew this was my chance. I asked she said When I was born my parents decided to name me after both of my grandparents. My mom’s mother’s name is juliane, and my dad’s father’s name is lukambo, so my name ended up being James Edward Lyttle. I’m pretty sure that my parents decided to name me after their fathers to avoid the stress of having to choose a random name. Not long after, my aunt came up with the idea of mixing my first and middle names together. She took the J from James and the Ed from Edward, which made my first nickname Jed. I wasn’t old enough at the time to realize that Jed was a nickname, so I thought that I had three names. It was a little bit confusing being taught how to spell my name (James) while being called Jed.
Even though I knew that my real name was James, I stuck with Jed, at least until grade school. Since my legal name is James, all of my teachers had that on their attendance rosters. As I moved up through the grades and had more and more teachers to deal with I began to give up on telling all of them that I went by Jed instead of James. It never really bothered me, because I like the name James just as much as Jed.
