Here a tag there a tag

I have been tagged , rather unfairly, I should say,as I cannot run.
Anyway here goes.
There are 3 rules.
Rule 1. The rules must be mentioned in the beginning of the tag.
Rule 2 You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
Rule 3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
My parents didn't give me a middle name for the simple reason they didn't give me my first name either.I was an unwanted second daughter who grew up into an aggressive middle child. My second cousin twenty times removed grabbed the opportunity and named me.She later had three daughters of her own and gave them even uglier names.
The name I would like as my middle name is Nidhi (treasure,..not an unwanted second daughter)
N for neurotic (gene presented by mater)
I for insecure( if your parents allowed your second cousin to name you you would be too)
D for depressed( ditto same reason as above)
H for haughty or hoi polloi as occasion demands.
I for inimitable (one of a kind)
By the way, I had to discard quite a few impressive words. N could have been narcissistic but I couldnt be both insecure and that could I? I could have been an iconoclast, ignoramus, immunologist, or even a hexagon. ok let it go.
Now like I said earlier , I am too old to play tag , so I need volunteers. Bye.

Tsk tsk PPP

You're supposed to talk about your pluses, not scare your readers with this list of negatives that adds up to the word "Wealth".

Inimitable _ I agree, agree.
I know exactly what you mean - I was an unwanted first daughter - does that make you less depressed?
Lovely post.

Nidhi itself speaks volumes of the wealth one has accumalated.Not necessarily material collection.Could be a wealth of friends and well wishers.As for parents allowing a distant cousin name you think of how important she might have felt.As for not liking the name given to you,well, the whole world feels that way.We seem to find other people's name better.
