I always love to hear the stories on how people got their names. My name is Jasmine Dione Banks. My middle name is from Dionne Warwick (thanks mom!), for no other reason then the fact that my mom liked Dionne Warwick. I wish my story was a little different. Something more heroic maybe? Alas… no…. my mom was a hippie. She loved Dionne Warwick and this song. THIS is how I got my first name. How were you named?
