Personal experiences with the name Montana: | Edit

My friend, Montana Olivia, was named because she was born in the state Montana, and the name just seems to suit her. She loves being outdoors, loves the beach and has golden hair. That's the only way I picture a Montana.

----------

My name is Montana, and I wasn't named after the state. I've been teased quite a bit throughout my entire life for my name. Joe Montana, Hannah Montana, any of the other 49 states... I've heard it all. Overall, I love my name. When I was younger I begged my parents to let me legally change it, but I've definitely grown into it. I can't imagine being anything but a Montana now.
