Name synchros are fun and usually grab our attention, particularly when the name is unusual. A little background on this one.
Megan’s friend, Chelsea, is getting married in April. This weekend, she and her bridal party got together for a bridal shower on Friday night and on Saturday, boarded a cruise ship for the Bahamas. The theme of Friday night’s shower was a British tea party (Chelsea’s mom is British), and Megan decided to have an alter ego, a British woman.
She asked Chelsea’s mom what would be a good British name for her. They decided on the name Gemma. Ever heard it? I hadn’t.
They drove to the port of Palm Beach Saturday morning. The cruise didn’t leave until evening, but passengers were allowed to board by 11 a.m. Saturday afternoon, we got a text from her with the above photo and a note:
My alter ego name last night was Gemma
We ended at a wine tasting here on the ship. The name of the woman serving us Gemma! She let me wear her name tag and pour the wine!
So, what are the odds on that one? And was there an element of precognition in the choice of names for her alter ego?
