What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?

ITH OR WITHOUT – An H that is.
For example with an H is Sarah Geronimo, Pop Princess. Without an H is Sara Duterte, First Daughter and feisty mayor of Davao city.
Also with an H is Sarah Lahbati, actress and sweetheart of Richard Gutierrez, mother to Zion, and Fil-French-Morocan beauty. With an H is activist Leah Navarro, also singer once upon a time. Without an H is Lea Salonga, our very own Broadway star.

PAOLO, PAULO – Paolo as in Paolo Contis (actor), Paolo Duterte (vice mayor of Davao City, elder brother of Sara), Paolo Ballesteros (actor and make-up artist), Paolo Bediones (TV host, by the way, whatever happened to him?).
Paulo as in Paulo Avelino (award winning actor, cast in two upcoming important films, “Larawan” and “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral”). Also Paulo Serrano (sexy actor).

MAMENG ALL – The following Carmens are all nick-named Mameng. As in Rosales (movie queen) and Soriano, Patena, Camacho, Perina (singers all).
But lately, Carmen Soriano (mother of Lloyd Samartino) has been appearing in GMA teledramas.
Now, really, what’s in a name. A rose by any other name will smell just as sweet.
