Q: Name pronunciation + any back story?
A: I have no idea why my parents chose my first name, but my middle name, Isabeau, is from Michelle Pfeiffer's character in the 1985 movie "Ladyhawke." This is particularly funny because I have three sisters and all three have old-fashioned, Biblical names - I'm the only one whose name was randomly plucked from a film!
