"Q" - SHE LIKED BEING QUIRKY
I was named after my daddy, Joel Clayton Smith. My parents thought two children were enough, and since they already had one daughter, I was their last chance for a boy. They added an "l" and an "e" to Joel to make Joelle. I loved the name Joelle because it was different, and was disappointed to eventually learn that Joelle is a common name in France.
