What’s in a name? – Weekly Photo Challenge


Let me introduce myself –  my name is Debbie or more formally Deborah.  Hello, I’m pleased to meet you 🙂

My daughters and other friends have called me Debs for quite some time now, so when I started blogging it seemed like a good idea to call my blog Deb’s World.

I received this personalised jar of Vegemite (an Australian delicacy) for Christmas and took the photo of the globe while out shopping just yesterday.  I made this photo collage last night, just for some fun, and shared it to my Instagram feed.  Did you notice I made sure the globe was positioned on Australia?  Get it – Deb’s World!!

As it includes my Name I’m happy to share it for this week’s photo challenge!  What serendipity 🙂

I have also been known as Wonder Woman Debs!

I once wrote a post about how I was named (here’s a link – The Power of Names) and it is with sadness that I acknowledge the recent passing of my namesake Debbie Reynolds.

What’s in a name?  Do you have a name story to share?

  1. love the Debs vegemite Debs! I get Debs from a few people too. What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet….
    im partial to Debs’s and people who share my birthday! Sadly, we’re out of vegemite here!

  2. Interesting story. As you know my name too is Deborah – Debby with a ‘y’ for short. Only a few people have ever called me ‘Debs’ and I consider it affectionate when I’m called that by those people.
    I write memoirs mostly and have talked about my namesake as it was told by me, but I suspect Debbie Reynold’s fame at the time may have inspired the name, even though that wasn’t mentioned. In my faith, we name after the dead. My grandmother’s name was Dorothy, I had 2 cousins already born and given the name, so it was decided I’d be a Deborah instead of a Dorothy. When my other cousin was born she became a Denise. 🙂

  3. I love your personalised vegemite. My name is Judith, but I don’t like to be called that, It either makes me feel like I am going to be told off, or it makes me sound like an old spinster aunty!
    I much prefer Judy although all my family and close friends call me Jude. 🙂

    1. Hi Judy, thanks for sharing your name preference with us. It’s good to know how others like to be addressed 😊 I used to take offence if people were too familiar by calling me Deb before I had got to know them but now it doesn’t bother me.
      I love the personalised vegemite too, it was such a cool gift! Enjoy the year ahead.
