The Name Game

Hi Everybody!  It's time to play Frankie's  NAME GAME!  What does your name mean??
Let's start with 'Stanzie'.....
My Sister 'Stanzie' is named after Wolfgang Mozart's wife. Constanze Marie Weber Mozart. While she was not Mozart's first choice.....he was first smitten, with her sister, Aloisa Weber, the well known opera singer.
Mozart loved his 'Stanzi Marini' and started every letter to her, 'My Dearest Most Beloved Little Wife'.
Constanze made sure Wolfgang's music, was not forgotten after his death and is responsible for making Salzburg, the Mozart center of the world!

My name 'Wyatt' comes from the iconic figure in American history, Wyatt Earp. Wyatt was a frontier lawman, gambler, business man and a gunslinger.
Conflicted at times....sort of a troublemaker with a big heart!
Happy 4th of July!


  1. How khool!

    Thanks fur sharing those pawesome tales!

    Happy FoURth of WOO-ly!


  2. Trouble maker with a big heart - that sounds exactly like you!

  3. What an interesting name Stanzie has - we never would have guessed. We were thinking maybe yours was connected to Mr. Earp. Nice sharing. Happy Fourth to you too.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  4. Trouble maker with a big heart, love it! That's a winning combination in my book!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. OOOOOO, we went to Wyatt Earp's town, but we didn't see him. We'll be sure to look next time we go down that way!

  6. I loved reading your name's stories!
    Kisses and hugs

  7. Great names with interesting back grounds. Does Stanzie like classical music?

  8. We love the stories of how you both got your names!
    Happy 4th, guys!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  9. Wow! That is awesome! I love both names!

    You are both so cool. :)

  10. Good background of your names.....We thought Stanzie was short for lovely Constanza, and we knew you were named after the wiley old cowboy....we just knew it ;)

    My name has a nice boring story. Mommy likes purple - so she thought Violet was better than saying 'Hey purple dinner's ready'! As a side note 2 of my kitty brothers have Russian names...Mommy has a thing for Ruskie hockey players...Gustov and Roman. She didn't like any of the Russian girlie names...plus Purple is her favorite color! haha

  11. Wyatt

  12. You both have very special and thoughtful names Wyatt. P.S. Every time my Mom comes here, she can't get over how cute you are. Like a stuffie - you are always so cute!

  13. This is fun. Alanis, named by a previous owner, is a singer and Miro is named after the Spanish artist Joan Miro. Love your names.

  14. Your name stories are great! I have had lots of fun learning more about all my furiends today!

    Happy July 4th!
    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae
