QotD: What My Name Means

What does your name mean and why did your parents choose it for you? 
Submitted by mommy2two.

"Adam" means red earth.

And my parents chose it…


…because they heard it on The Archers and liked it. The original idea was to call me Matthew, but they didn't like the clash of 't's in Matt Tinworth. They also prefered shorter names with the long surname.

So, I was named after Adam Macy, illegitimate son of Jennifer Archer, who is now in a civil partnership with Ian, the chef from Gray Gables.

And there you go. That's how I became Adam.
