So for my first post, I thought I'll unveil the short story behind my two names - Lauren and Bianca
When I was born, my intended first name was Bianca and my middle name was to be Lauren (after my mum's fondness of Ralph Lauren perfume of course). My brother aged 5 years old at the time couldn't pronounce Bianca properly and this annoyed my parents, so they officially swapped Bianca and Lauren (which he could pronounce properly) around on my Birth Certificate. From then on, my name at pre-school, primary, dancing and high school was Lauren and at home, my family and family friends would and still call me Bianca (my real and intended name). It's been like that ever since.
In a way I am living two personalities - making me the true ultimate Gemini ;) I personally prefer Bianca, Lauren is just too blahhh lol. But you can call me either name, I have lived 21 years answering to both.
