"Covero Tubero!"

Okay. Let's do this blog challenge that I took and posted months ago:

01. Your middle name and how you feel about it:

Hmm.. middle name is the maiden name of your mother, right? Well, Filipinos refers the middle name as the abbreviated name between the given first name and last name or surname like my mine, Lara Melissa C. EraƱa, letter C is abbreviated for Covero, my mother's maiden lastname. I heard some countries they refer middle name as the second or the third name on the given first name like Shane Steven Filan, Steven is the referred middle name. Shane Steven Filan by the way is the most beautiful man in the world.

So to my middle name... well how do I feel about it? there's nothing actually. I've never felt insecure about my name, well aside it's too girl for me but I don't see any name that I would want to change to. The only time that I felt ashamed about having it is when I was in 2nd grade. My classmate asked what my letter C stands for and I answered "Covero" then he burst  out laughing, saying "Aah.. Tubero! Tubero pala nanay mo eh!" Translation: he called my mother a plumber, as my middle name and the Tagalog word for plumber are sound alike. Could you just imagine that? I'm already bullied because of me being an ugly duckling let alone having funny sound attached on my name. I was scared. I don't wanna be a laughing subject anymore. Thank God he got over it moments later and didn't tell a co-bully about it. Maybe because it's forgettable, they don't always see  the name as I always put the first initial of it like we does, unless it's required.

Well my middle name completes the person that I am. It's my grandfather's name that my mother took and used until she married my father. Now, I both used those last names. It doesn't matter how funny they sound,  but it's my parents names. 'Nuff said.
