    Doris Paulina Pulaski
    Doris- A Dorian woman (i.e. from Spartan area of Greece), also the name of a Greek sea goddess
    (it was my mother's name)
    Paulina-name of a Roman family, meaning little bitty in Latin
    (what a joke on me!) but it was my Grandma's name and she was little bitty
    Pulaski - son of Paul (Polish) it's my husband's last name.

    So as you can see, I have only used names, none of my own.
