She Has a Name!

Yes, my new mannequin now has a name!
  
The previous owner emailed me the following:


"Judi,  I found out her name was Lucy.  However they said as a nickname it is really a Polish version of Laura.  Sorry that is all I could come up with."


I love it!  


I did a bit of researching and couldn't find that Laura was translated to Lucy, however, I did find that Lucy in Polish is either Lucyna or Lucja.


So....I have chosen Lucyna G 


G stands for Gra┼╝yna, which means beautiful and Giertruda*, which holds some childhood sentiment...AND because I don't want to choose between the two!


(A special thank you to Michele and Mindy for their input.)


And thanks to all of you for your suggestions/comments plus taking the time to do so!   It warms my heart to know that you care about little ole me and my new treasure...only bloggers can understand that!


oh and to see the original post go here.





*this means strong spear...kinda fits, dontcha think?
