What's in a Name?

I have a name

I smile as I write it down

That means something

People I know hear these sounds

And it conjures up 

My face

My laugh

My voice

I am lucky

Some people have only numbers

Branded as cattle

I have

Nineteen letters

3 words

With meanings

Born on Christmas

(I wasn’t)

Of the laurel tree

(I’m not)

Son of Hugh

(Daughter of Colin and Lisa)

But put them together

And they mean
