#MyNameIs Eric. My first name in Chinese was “Liang”, which means “bright”.— Eric Feigl-Ding (@DrEricDing) October 18, 2020
As a child immigrant to the US, I chose my name Eric because it’s the only (boy) name spelled out whole in the word ‘America’.
I stand w/ #KamalaHarris.#DavidPerdue is disgusting. #Vote for @ossoff. https://t.co/5T9RyorHY1
Scrolling through #MyNameIs at the end of a long day & it’s giving me life.💜— Maya Harris (@mayaharris_) October 18, 2020
My name is Maya (magic/illusion) Lakshmi (goddess of beauty & wealth).
People mispronounce my names all the time, but you can’t tell me nothin’. I know who I am.
Show these folks who we are. #VOTE
#MyNameIs “Crushed Turquoise” translated from the Keres language. Like the color of the sky or a deep blue ocean. Before colonization, women were equals and I strive to be a voice for them. This is likely above Sen. Perdue’s head. #IWillVote— Deb Haaland (@DebHaalandNM) October 18, 2020
#MyNameIs Anatole Elonzo. Means "from the east, rising sun" & "ready for battle". As a kid, some mocked & I even heard Tylenol & "Faggot-ol" a time or a dozen.— Anatole Jenkins (@AnatoleJenkins) October 18, 2020
Men like @sendavidperdue have only made me MORE proud of my name. And call me "Faggot-ol" now, I might kick your ass. https://t.co/arewLlXMT5
#MyNameIs Mimi. It’s pronounced MeMe (not MyMy or MiiMii) & it means I’m done worrying about whether older men will underestimate me because of my name (as they often do) & instead I just say- go ahead & underestimate me! 😉— Mimi Rocah (@Mimirocah1) October 19, 2020
#MyNameIs Merav. It means “Much Water.” I was born in a drought year much like the one Wyoming is in right now, but the night I was born it finally rained and the drought was broken.— Dr. Merav Ben-David (@MBenDavid2020) October 18, 2020
Wyoming is experiencing a drought of good leadership - one I’ll break when I am in the Senate☂️.
My great grandmother’s name was Kamala. Not “Kamala-mala-mala, I don’t know, whatever.”#MyNameIs Gautam. It means bright light. The kind of bright light a Biden-Harris Administration will represent. And that is why #IWillVote.— Gautam Raghavan (@gauragDC) October 17, 2020
