I share my name with...
My name is Candi. There I've said it. And I'm often called Cathy, as many of you on twitter will know. It's a name that provides lots of entertainment, especially for other people.
"My dog is called Candi!" Yes I've heard that.
"Sweet as candy!" No not really.
"Do you wash like a Candy?" Better!
There has never been a film that featured a businesswoman called Candi. I wonder why? For some reason my name tends to attach to less salubrious occupations. Perhaps this is why my career stalled..
Things are a little better in song, and of course there's the wonderful Candi Staton, who can actually sing.
Digging deeper into the internet I found out that I also share my name with the following:
A Hindu Mother Goddess.
The Grand Candi Hotel in Indonesia. I like that one :)
And this morning I discovered that the most famous Candy in Ireland is.....a penguin.
So fess up, who or what do you share your name with?
