Bit of boring information here about how I got my name.


I was named after a my Great Uncle (My grandad's brother) who was named Joseph Wilding.



He died from head injuries after a sheet or girder, probably of steel hit him or fell on his head whilst working in Cammell Lairds.

My Middle name derrives from my Great Uncle (My nan's brother) who was called Daniel.


Just wondering if any of you were named after members of your family or have any interesting stories of how you got your name?

I was named after my Grand Father, as there has always been
a "Mark" in the Family for how long who knows.

Sorry nothing too exciting, not named after any
warriors or famous people.

I was named after my great grandfather (antonio) he was a legend in Italy so i am told killed alot of Germans before he was killed for doing this.

Loved his country bit like me.

He didnt agree with the war back in the day and as his mam n paps were english stood for what he belived in.

Shame as he was a good man i am led to belive unlike may father who i have never met and has since died.

My dad was going to name be Bruce(first) Lee(second) after the martial arts legend.. My dad is so obssesed with Bruce Lee so he wanted to call me a legend... But my mum didnt like the name Bruce and to be honest i dont like it either.. Then had another argument over another name they where going to call me (liam) but then they both called a truce and called me Lee(first after bruces second name) David(after my grandad and my dad) smile My full name is Lee David Mills smile Better than Bruce Lee Mills imho.. So thats how i got my name Lee smile (breaths in phew) tease
