Veronica’s Name

In case you’re wondering, Joe’s grandmother, on her birth certificate was Veronica Susann.  (She was called Vera most of her life and on her wedding invitation she used Vera Susann.)  The Susann is pronounced like Suzanne.   Marye is, of course, after the Blessed Mother.  It was a tradition in my family for the girls to have either Mary or Marie in their names (Susan Marie, Ann Marie, Mary Louise, Marie Teresa, & Kristen Mary).  We decided to keep that tradition.  Marye is pronounced like Marie.  Marye is also a family name.  If you go to Fredericksburg, Virginia, there is a War Between the States site that is called Marye’s Heights.  Joe is related to just about everyone in Virginia, and his 5th great-grandfather was James Marye, Jr.  Lucy Mary Ann Marye was his 4th great-grandmother and she married a Weir (of Liberia in Manassas, VA.) The land where that battle was belonged to that Marye family.  So, now you know the rest of the story.

    I was PERFECTLY satisfied with the assumption that you named her after me. Maybe next time 😉
