Personal experiences with the name Persephone: | Edit

This is my littlest sister's name. I have a total of eight siblings. They're named August, Leora, Alea, Serafina, Jay, Allanah, Zachary,& Persephone. My name's Estayfany. Don't worry all though it's apparently normal these days my mom did not have all these children. I was adopted. Along with- my twin sisters- Leora& Alea, -my fraternal twin brother& sister-, Serafina& Jay. August my "twin" brother was only adopted by my mom because he is my father's biological son already. Allanah, Zachary,& Persephone are my mom's only biological children so far.

My daughter is named Persephone. I hated the name at first but warmed up to it. She has four siblings named Ellie, Maeve, Lucas, and Jak.
