I don't know how it happened.
I'll never understand.
When I got married and changed my name
I was in wonderland!
My maiden name was ''Gasiewicz''.
Say that one ten times fast!
So when I became ''Nagy''
I thought...some peace at last!
It seems an easy name...
I'm simply ''Mary Nagy''.
But somehow through the years...
they've turned me into ''Maggie''.
I have to laugh about it.
It happens all the time.
I guess it is just natural
when two names seem to rhyme.
I get it in my daily life...
''Hello, How are you Maggie? ''
I just chuckle to myself
and say ''I'm Mary Nagy''.
I didn't think I'd get that
mistake here on the net.
But, yep, It's happening again...
''Hi, I'm Maggie. Have we met? ''
