one stupid jane fact: my name

+ my middle name is a noun.
+ it is incorrectly spelled with an 'e' on the end.
+ it means :" area of the surface with a distinctive geological character"
+ i was named for my aunt. her first name is hyphenated. my middle name is the second part of her first name.
+ my aunt's daughter died. before i was born. rather than have me bear the burden of a dead child's name, my mother named me for my aunt.
+ I love my name.
