Yeah, I was actually sifting through some forum posts this morning and she was talking about this.God to her to name Hannah, Rebekah. But she later changed her mind because she didn't want her mom to think she was named after her. She told this dramatic story of how "God spoke to her" during a sermon at church and that he told her to name her Rebekah. But, if that story were true, she blatantly disobeyed God.
Here's the problem: It seems it's a lie where she says she didn't want her mom to think she was named after her.
According to her mom's obit, Kate's mom was named Anne C. Proebstel.
I thought maybe she'd actually meant her mom's parents? But they're named Bob and Esther -- no Rebekahs anywhere.
Maybe there's some logical explanation, but from the facts provided, it doesn't make sense.
