This little cutie holding the balloons is Angelina.  My father's mother was also Angelina.  My grandmother had eight children, four of which were males.  I was the first female baby born to any of those men and as such I was supposed to be named Angelina.  My mother fought that battle and won.  I don't expect that my life would be any different if I were Angelina, I just don't relate to that name.   Many, many years ago I told that story to my best buddy.  Around the time she learned that fact the Rolling Stones had come out with their song "Angie".  Every time we were anywhere with a jukebox (and it was pretty frequently) she made a point of playing that song.  You can grow to hate a song under those circumstances.  One time she played it at the neighborhood bar we frequented, when it came on (for what seemed to be the millionth time) I "accidentally" fell on the jukebox ending the song for that time.
