Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! The Brady Bunch

Personal experiences with the name Marcia: | Edit

From kindergarten to even now, in my junior year of high school, I still get people saying "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia". I actually got it from my PE teacher from kindergarten up to 5th grade so I had to deal with him saying that every other day for 5 years, I went to a different school in 2nd grade then came back to the same school the next school year. I got it from my Art 2 teacher the other day... Yep. She was like "Do you know what that's from? Have you watched 'The Brady Bunch'?"... I had to say yes because I definitely have in my almost 17 years of existence. I have only ever found 1 other person with my name but it was the other spelling. There are people with my last name at school but none with my first name. Not super unique but more unique than Unique.
I actually wasn't named after Marcia Brady by the way. I was named after my dad's best man at his wedding/bestfriend & my dad's brother. Both me & my sister were. My dad's bestfriend's name was Mark Stephen & my uncle's is Terry Donald, so I was named Marcia Dawn & my sister was named Teresa Stephanie. So yeah, not named after Marcia Brady, just the female version of Mark/Marcus.
