Your Name – Personal Branding

My parents named me Cynthia. My nickname was Cindy (it is no longer my nickname). When I asked, as a child about my name my mother told me about this song. The only line I remember is

Cindy don’t let me down.

Now what kind of message is that for a kid ?

Here are the lyrics in full.

I joined the Navy to see the world
But nowhere could I find
A girl as sweet as Cindy
The girl I left behind
I’ve searched the wide world over
Can’t get her out of my mind

Cindy, oh Cindy
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
Cindy don’t let me down
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
Write me a letter, dear
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
And I’ll be homeward bound
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)

I see her face in every wave
Her lips kiss every breeze
Her loving arms reach out to me
Through calm and stormy sea
At night I face the lonely day
Caressed by memories

Cindy, oh Cindy
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
Cindy don’t let me down
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
Write me a letter, dear
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
And I’ll be homeward bound
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)

I know my Cindy’s waiting for me
As I walk the decks alone
Her loving arms reach out to me
Soon I’ll be heading home
Then my sailing days will be over
No more will I roam

Cindy, oh Cindy
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
Cindy don’t let me down
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
Write me a letter, dear
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
And I’ll be homeward bound
(C-Cindy, C-Cindy)
