My mother's name was Jane.
My great grandmother's middle name was Jane.
There are other great greats on back through history whose names or middle names were Jane. Keziah Jane. Sarah Jane.
My daughter's middle name is Jane. Her daughter's middle name is Jane.
But apparently I have been Jan for forty of my years.
Social Security asked for documentation of name change so I dug up marriage certificate.
"I don't know why they asked for this, we already have you in here with your married name."
Forty years ago when I changed my social security number from my maiden name to my married name, someone dropped the "e" in my middle name. Since the card just had my middle initial on it, I never knew.
I did not abandon you Jane Christina, Lodusca Jane, Keziah Jane and all you other Janes.
I am Jane again.
