What they call you: Kristen Renee Simpson
Tell Us About You:
My first name is from a character’s name on the 1970s/80s tv show Dallas. My mom was awaiting my arrival and heard the name and loved it, so she decided to name me Kristen. Just that simple lol. However, my middle name, Renee, is more meaningful to me because I share the same middle name with my mom. It has actually become the middle name of baby girls for 3 generations in my family. Hopefully, one day I will be able to continue the tradition.
