Disowning Myrtle

Via Nina Lentini's Life Without End:

She was born Myrtle Hart, at 85 Morrell Street in New Brunswick. However, as she would admit to anyone, she loathed the name Myrtle, so she would introduce herself by the name of Chris(tianne), her baptismal name, to which she finally changed legally at the advanced age of 81. [Link]


I wish more genie diggers would remember that many people, use other names other than their given names. Some people legally change them others (myself) just started using another name because I didn't like mine. Even my legal documents have my made up name and no one has ever said a word. My teenage grandchildren just discovered granny isn't who they thought she was.
