The Story Behind the Name: Bellissamo Image

This was a thoughtful and painstakingly, arduous task.  My father’s dad was born in Italy.  Truthfully, this is a little embarrassing, but I have no idea where in Italy.  By the time I found this information, it was on his death certificate.  Then again, by the time I really became interested in my heritage, my father was ill and soon passed.  Any who, I feel a deep connection to my father and his ancestry.  I plan on getting more involved on this path as some of my current hobbies, fall off my list.  You know, like getting my Master’s degree.  Graduation has been submitted!!  Truthfully, I cannot wait until the day.  I am pretty proud of myself.  Such a little slacker and trouble-maker in late high school.  Now, I am so far from that little girl, who was going through some rough times.

There I go…. off on a tangent.  So, when I started looking at names and discussing this with my husband, this path of my family heritage was discussed at length.  I came up with multiple names and even tried a name picking website.  Nothing felt right.  Then finally I chose some English names and translated them in Italian.  Finally….. I found something that I really felt connected with….. Beautiful Picture.  When separated translates into Bellissamo – Immagini.  But, since I really don’t know anyone who speaks Italian, I thought maybe I would convert the word picture, to image.  The last thing I wanted to do was to confuse those who may read my articles or peruse my photography.

So…. That’s It!  The story behind the name.  Well, at least part of it.   😉

You have the right to choose.  Exercise your right.
