My Name!

Hi everyone..I was born 1953 in the UK. My mother was a big fan of Susan Hayward and went to see all her films. She always said if she ever had a daughter she would name her Susan and guess what that turned out to be me! I tell everyone this story and am very proud to be named after such a lovely lady.

Re: My Name!

Hi Susan,
You are so lucky! You're named after the greatest actress ever!

Re: My Name!

Hi Susan!

Welcome to the message board. I hope you'll visit often.

I do remember that you had either written to me previously (quite a while ago) or had written in the guestbook regarding that you were named Susan after Susan Hayward. I think that is so very neat of your mom. I can understand how you are proud to be named after Susan Hayward!

BTW --I received a note from a lady a few years ago whose name is Susan Hayward. She acquired the name when she married a man whose last name is Hayward. Her name was somewhat of a conversation piece for sure!

Thanks for checking in, Susan!

Re: Re: My Name!/one more thing

Bette Midler's mom loved Susan Hayward and Bette Davis, therefore the Divine Miss M was named after Bette Davis, and Bette M's sister, Susan, was named after.. you guessed it!

Re: Re: Re: My Name!/one more thing


I believe I read somewhere there was another sister - named Judy - after Judy Garland.


Re: Re: My Name!

Thanks for your replies. I only discovered your site last night so no i havent contacted you before. I didnt know about Bette Middler!
Also my sister has twin boys so thats something of a coincidence.
Best wishes and i really enjoyed looking at your site.

Re: Re: Re: My Name!

Thank you, Susan, and sorry I mixed you up with someone else. I do remember someone writing to me and telling me that they had been named after Susan, so seems like there are several out there!

I'm glad you found the website.

Trish --I didn't know that about Bette having a sister named after Judy Garland.

You are fortunate indeed to be named after our lovely Susan Hayward.

I always wanted my first daughter to be named "Susan" but my husband had different ideas! However, she is named Donna Susan.
