“We were having a girls’ night, and one of my friends said, “If I ever had a girl – but I’m not having any more kids – I will name her Honor,” I said, “That’s a great name for a boy or a girl.” And Marie is my middle name. I was always irritated that my name was Jessica. Come on, it’s a very 80′s name, because there were tons of Jessicas in every school I went to. There’s something great about having a unique name. It’s a part of your identity.”
