The story of my name

My Mum and Dad picked out my name.  They found Manisha on the internet and loved it.  My middle name is Raine because my grandmother, who passed away, her name was Lorraine.  Mum shortened the name Lorraine and made my middle name Raine.

Manisha is a traditional Indian name.  If I was a boy I would have been called Solomon.  My nickname is Nish, Nisha, Nood because I eat lots of noodles.  My dad’s nickname for me was sausage when I was a little girl.
