Where does Shawn's middle name come from?

Post  alcazar on Fri Jan 30, 2009 11:28 am

Machel?
When I first saw it I thought it must be a misprint for Rachel, but no, apparently not.
Is it a family name? Like some people get, say, gran's maiden name? Or is it common in the USA?

I've come across some far-out names in the UK, (like Rylan for a boy, and Otele, pronounced Otterly, for a girl), but have never met a Machel

It is just a different spelling of Michelle.

That's what I've always thought. It might be a family name, idk. My middle name is my mom's maiden name. But I had never heard of Machel until Shawn. So I don't really know. I like it though.

An alternative spelling of Michelle? You sure?

I know a lass called Mallery......I asked her if she got the name when her mum was drugged up after giving birth and mis-pronounced Valery...............LOL, I must have a death-wish Twisted Evil

And I used to know a lass called Alpha, her dad taught physics confused

Well Shawn could be a boys name too...maybe her parents thought they were having a boy and didn't want to change the name??? tongue

Well now, that's weird..........her parents gave her two names that are also used for boys, and she turned out to be a bit of a tomboy, climbing on the furniture before throwing herself off........

Coincidence, surely.........................or is it???????????? affraid

Can't find anything on pronunciation, either.
is it to rhyme with Rachel, or like Ma-shell, or like Mackell?

i thought it was a different way of spelling michelle, but maybe it is like michelia without the ia if you know what i am trying to say

but i'm stickin with michelle. if it is a boy name i would think it's pronounced as michael, since according to that website it is a variation of michael.

I guess the only logical solution is for one of us to find her and ask her. And being such the good guy I am....I volunteer to do it, I know it will be tough, but I will bite the bullet and do it. Very Happy

Lol thanks for stalling her for me Razz. I meant Shawn to say something like "My name is Shawn Machel Johnson and I am an Olympic gold medallist" or something like that. Shawn and Machel could be passed down through the family

Hey wait...your stealing my master plan for getting Shawn to like me.....one day she just has to check out this forum...and on that day, she will see what a great guy I am, and just have to come find me. At which point I will ask her to say her middle name. Don't worry that will be the very first question I ask her..... Very Happy
