Daisy's parents are from Laos, so her first name is actually Ratsamy though Daisy is not a nick-name but her given middle name when she was born in Minnesota. I was always called Adam, but my middle name is Blair after my grandfather. I have a cousin named Blair, so that would have made things confusing. My brother Brandon goes by his middle name, as his first name is William. I never liked the idea of going by your middle name as it belittles your first. Sometimes it can't be helped but some people (like my parents with Brandon) do this with intention when they name their children. I let Daisy know early on that any children we may have would not have a Laotian name first, but rather it be their middle name.
Do you go by your first name or your middle name?
