D is for.... Edenhouse

 Well I am delighted to share the letter D this week. Now sadly most of my D names I do not have photographs for sorry .

The first D is for David  now I know many David's .
Two are neighbours David Cadwell is my next door neighbour his eldest son is Ben Christophers best mate.
Then there is David Evans my opposit neighbour, he came to my rescue when the tilet was flooding. He is married to Diane ( another D) and is a fab cook, love invites there to eat.
Next comes my nieces step Dad David he was a worl colleague of my ex.
Then there is David Stubbs great frineds from Manchester now in Lincoln also married to a Diane and Godfather to my youngest daughter, his wife Diane is Second daughters Godmother.
As you can see I know a couple of Dianes , there is another Diane in Manchester sadly not seen her for years we became very close when her husband suddenly died way to young.

What I notice about these two D names they are not names so common today. I do not know any children with these names. The yougest David I know is my friend Stephs husband who is mid 30's
having said that if I knew more welsh people I might know a few more David's.

It would very remiss of me to forget Deborah . I know a few. Two in particular who are both prison officers and also great friends.

 Meaning of David
 From the Hebrew name דָּוִד (Dawid), which was probably derived from Hebrew דוד (dwd) meaning "beloved". David was the second and greatest of the kings of Israel, ruling in the 10th century BC. Several stories about him are told in the Old Testament, including his defeat of Goliath, a giant Philistine. According to the New Testament, Jesus was descended from him.
This name has been used in Britain since the Middle Ages. It has been especially popular in Wales, where it is used in honour of the 5th-century patron saint of Wales (also called Dewi), as well as in Scotland, where it was borne by two kings. Famous bearers include empiricist philosopher David Hume (1711-1776) and explorer David Livingstone (1813-1873). This is also the name of the hero of Charles Dickens' semi-autobiographical novel 'David Copperfield' (1850).
Meaning of Diane
GENDER: Feminine
USAGE: French, English
PRONOUNCED: dee-AHN (French), die-AN (English) [key]
Meaning & History
French form of DIANA, also regularly used in the English-speaking world.

I seem to have quite a few Davids in my life too! Only one Deborah though, and no Dianes!

I can't think of any Davids that I know right now. It's strange how names are real popular for a while and then they kind of fall by the wayside. When I was growing up in the 1950's there were so many girls named Mary.

I hate to say this, but I will anyway because I'm the Horse Pucky Queen. All the "D"s in my life are ex's or someone else's ex. They all got bags of horse pucky.


My grandmother's name is Dena. I've always, always loved it.


David is my husband's name.
Great post!
