Tell Us About Your Name!


Cindy "Villaseñor"

Villa = House
Señor = Man

I’ve tried researching where my name originated.  We’ve discovered that my ancestors were either landowners (“master of the house”) or servants.

Cindy is a family name.  My original name was Katherine but my father scratched it off my birth certificate and changed it to Cynthia after his favorite cousin.  There is a hole on my birth certificate from the eraser.
