My parents spent a long time trying to decide on a name for me. My mom asked my dad to chose from lots of names and he didn't like any until he heard Jackie. He loves to bet on the horses and he thought Jackie sounded like Jackpot so he loved it and that's how I got my name.

It was a coincidence that the very day I was born our pastor visited my parents. Thus I was named after him. His name was pastor Jeconia, hence that became my name.

My mom wanted to name me Sasha, however a family friend decided Tarrha was better. So I like being called "The tower of the people" at home and being called "Star or queen' outside

My name was supposed to be Lucy. But my grandparents thought that it was too demonic because our last name is Per. My dad used to work as a crew in a famous fast food chain here in the Philippines called Jollibee. So he decided to name me Jolly. Because my middle is V.

Crazy. I know.

My father derived my name from prophet Jeremiah. It is a Hebrew name and biblical. Whatever be our names, it will reflect on our lives, just believe.
