The Rest of the Story - Part 3

Okay, the answer to #3.
3. I was named after a princess

Yes, that is true.  I was named after Princess Stephanie of Monoco, although I do not go by "Stephanie". 
My mother had picked out my name but needed something to go with it.  Princess Stephanie was born about 2 months before me and her family was featured in Life Magazine.  It was fun as a child to tell people I was named after a princess.  I looked at that Life Magazine over and over.

I think I told you someone wanted me named Ernestine. Well, someone else wanted me named after a movie star. I didn't quite get that name either, but one close to it.
