Some of you may already know this but to my new readers and followers I just want to clarify.
So this is my name:
I know what you are thinking – my name is sen-see or sen-say but it is isn’t.
My name is spelled C-E-N-S-I-E but is said like Kenzie. You know like MacKenzie? But without the Mac and without the K! ;o)
There now I feel like you really “know” me!
My name is Censie (Kenzie) nice to meet you!
My name has brought up a lot of things in my life time and I consistently surprised by the pronunciations I hear and the comments about my name. The best one was when I was in high school and I had a sub in my anatomy class. She called my name (sen-sey) and I responded it is actually Kenzie. Her reply – “wow was your mom on crack when she named you?” Yeah that really happened – anyone want to guess who walked out of that class without permission or a pass? THIS GIRL!
You are probably wondering why my parents chose Censie for my name. Here is the story. My mother’s name is Carol, her middle name starts with a J and our last name starts with an M. They loved the name Kenzie so the improvised because they really wanted my mom and I to have the same initials. So that is how they came up with my name Censie J. M… Now it does go further. My dad’s name is R. John M…. They named my brother R. Jarrin M…. So we had (until I got married) the matching initials of CJM and RJM.
Fun! But for the most part, after I explain the pronunciation I get complements. It is fun and hard having a different name.
Thanks for listening and learning my name.
