When people meet my daughter Tuesday they ask if she was born on a Tuesday. She wasn't.
A handful of people think she was named for Tuesday Weld, the actress. While I am thankful for Tuesday Weld as it gives some legitimacy to my own daughter's name (see, it is a name!) that isn't where we got the name either. My husband had a friend who had a daughter that he named Tuesday and it just stuck with him, as a name he really liked, in the back of his mind. For me, it was her:
I'm so a child of the 1970s.
It would be way too meta or postmodern if someone asked me if she was named for The Real Tuesday Weld, the band that is really Stephen Coates. I put the little goof of a song "Diddley Dee" on a CD for my daughter at least a year or two ago and she dug it. "I Love the Rain" has the lovely old-fashioned 30s feel with the modern beat thing that TRTW does so well. And my favorite (pretty much everyone's favorite) Real Tuesday Weld song is "Ugly to the Beautiful." So I'm posting it here too, even if it isn't exactly perfect for the kids.
The Real Tuesday Weld, "Diddley Dee"
