So, I have been hearing about some drama among the beautiful folks in my fanbase over my name. Here’s the sitch: I changed my first name to Lights, legally it’s on my documents as Lights V. A. Poxleitner (haven’t changed my last name yet… can confirm it’s a lot of work!!). Among a number of reasons, I felt it was a really crucial step in the next part of my life. BUT if you like to call me Valerie, that’s ok too. I think it’s a handsome name, so do my parents!
Every name means something, Anne is my grace, Valerie is my bravery and Lights is my… well that one speaks for itself. I do not know what Poxleitner means (possibly do not want to know…? Sounds a little diseasy). Regardless, I encourage you to look into what your name means, even your middle name. I think each name is influential in your character and life, one is not less important than another.
This is turning into a longer post than I intended, but all this to say, all of my names are valuable to me. In person it’s easier to call me Lights if by chance we should meet, it’s what I go by these days ;) but elsewhere in this wild wild west of the internet or on the streets or on a mountain trail…..call me what you like, Valerie, Diana Prince, Uncle Lights, just don’t call me late for dinner!
(I had to)
Love you guys very much. Do the same for each other!
