My name: A curse or a boon?
GERARD CHRISTIAN was the name my parents prepared while I was being conceived by my mother. GERARD was taken from my father’s name GERARDO. CHRISTIAN was paired with it. According to many my father is a very kind person hence, I was named after him. They too, believed that the name CHRISTIAN of whom they knew were all kind. My name is therefore, considered as a boon. I grew up as they really have wished for – they say I am kind and gentle.
