I used to hide behind a nickname. My real name felt too real, felt too fiery, too strong.

What's in a name?

My name is Lachrista. Not "LaChrista" or "La Christa." Get it right or pay the price. My name literally translates from Italian to the female Christ, which I think is fitting, not because I'm "Christ-like" or anything, but because I'm a strong, feminist woman. My name really couldn't get any more religious. My middle name is "Marie," which is the French form of "Mary." My last name, however, means Greek person in Italian. So, I guess it could have been more religious had my last name been something else.
