Tell Us About Your Name!


Helen Hatsuye Ota

大田 = Ota
初江 = Hatsuye
ヘレン = Helen

I’m told that my Auntie gave me my first name, Helen, but I don’t know why she chose that name.  I should find out!

My middle name loosely means “first born.”  I’m the oldest of three, though I admit I feel like I’m the youngest.  My sister and brother are amazing siblings and I find that I look up to them often.

Based on this original
