My mother found a magazine of famous queens and she got my first name, Carla. Then she consulted my father and he liked it, so they decided it would be my name.

 

Both my mother and my father chose my name. First, they chose my middle name, Juliana. My mother says that she always thought when she had a girl she would choose that name.

But my parents also like compound names. That was only one name, so they had to think about the best first name.

They thought about several namesMaria, Andrea, or Luisa Nathaliabefore they chose my actual name.

Finally, my mother found a magazine of famous queens and she got my first name, Carla. Then she consulted my father and he liked it, so they decided it would be my name.

Now, I like my name a lot. I'm really pleased that they chose this name. I think it is quite a beautiful name.
