Hello! My name is Mary-Keith


Mary-Keith? Is that your last name? Is that your middle name? It's hyphenated? What kind of name is THAT? It's a weird one. 

But it's is my name nonetheless. My whole life until I was 21 I thought the story went this like: If I was going to be a boy I was going to be named Keith. Since I was a girl they named me Mary-Keith. Turns out, that isn't the case. I was telling the story to a friend one day and my mom was like "um..no" It was my grandma's mother's maiden name (Keith) and her (my grandmother) name was Florence-Keith. Or something like that. In short, it is a family name. I could be completely wrong yet again. 

Everyone thinks it is weird. Below is a video of Seth Bolt of NEEDTOBREATHE making fun of my name. I have seen them, oh, 17 times or so. I used to try to chat with them or snag a picture with them after every show. For a while they weren't that big so I could. Anyways, long story short, Seth knows (probably more accurate to say 'knew') my name. When he found out it was  Mary-Keith he kept telling me it was a boy name and I was weird. 





So, yes that is my name. I wanted to explain it since you probably have never heard it before. It's weird but it is mine. Do you have a unique name? What is it?

  2. That's so cool Need to Breathe makes fun of your name - Touch of stardom :)
    I'm Rebecca Jo so I get it... Are you from the South? It's usually a Southern thing to have 2 names or use the middle name :)
