One Sunday while expecting me, my mother attended mass and shared a pew with an adorable, mischievous little girl. Her mother repeatedly admonished, "Susie, sit still." "Susie, be quiet." "Susie, be serious." The girl would try to follow the rules but quickly got carried away again. My mother was quite taken by her imaginative spunk and happiness, deciding right then what her daughter's name would be. Fits pretty well!

-Susan with the nickname Susie, Brooklyn, NY & Santa Fe, NM
