THE HASTY TRADITION

DPChallenge – Power of Names

I love traditions. I love to keep them and l love to create them. I think sometimes that my entire day is planned around tradition. Some people might call them routines but if you stick with a routine long enough it becomes tradition. My family didn’t really have a strong tradition regarding names but when I got married my husband’s side did.

Tradition holds that each first male son would be given the middle name Hasty. This is a generations old tradition beginning in 1856 with Margaret Hasty.  It was a beautiful tradition until now.  My husband and I were blessed with a girl and my husband’s brother has not had children. I suppose he could still have a child but most likely the tradition has ended with my husband.

Many bloggers and friends have asked why I chose the pen name Hasty. I may not have a son I can pass that name on to but I wanted to at least honor my husband’s ancestors in some way. I know several people don’t love the name but I do and I will use it proudly. In a way; it works well because it perfectly describes how I write.

Who knows… maybe my daughter will have a son someday and the tradition will be re-instated.

  1. That is a beautiful tradition. My daughter’s second middle name is a family name, passed down through my great-grandmother (Belle). People tend to think that I’ve named her after a princess or a fairy (it doesn’t help that she loves both, and my dad calls her is Binky-Belle). Honoring loved ones through traditions is a beautiful way to show the world how you feel. Thank you for sharing this piece of yourself with us.

  6. Hasty, you make for a fine tradition, family myth, folklore, and tales. There’d be a few stories over that time, how many are still out there, perhaps still spoken of, those with the name Hasty.

  8. I had never considered Hasty as a first name until I read this and realized you’re using it as your pseudonym. It’s a great name, though. And it’s a super cool way to pay tribute!
