Amelia Earhart Namesake Achieves her Goal

She was named after the original Amelia Earhart who had been highly acclaimed for her trip around the world and whose plane had disappeared mysteriously leaving the world in a state of horror and shock. 

Amy, as she was ordinarily called was sick and tired of the constant comparison with Amelia Earhart. Then one fine day, she decided to live up to the name and its reputation. 

“It was such a big risk for her to take,” Earhart said. “To see how tiny that island was, I have a whole new respect for that woman.”

The expectations from such a name were simply too much. Yet she knew that if she did not do something about it, she would be stuck with unfulfilled desires for the rest of her life. 

Today her name has not only earned her lots of money, it has helped her gain a Net following in the millions. She has a scholarship that she will avail and has a chance at flying a plane around the globe just like the one and only. 

Amelia Rose Earhart, former traffic and weather reporter at 9News, took flying lessons and then went ahead and completed the flight path around the globe. By the end of it she landed in Oakland, California on Friday, June 11 and called it a day. 

“I am a woman who has charted the course of her life based around another woman’s legacy,” Earhart said.

She is the youngest woman to have flown around the world in one go. Amelia contends that our parents name us without thinking through the consequences sometimes. 

This can put an extra burden on the person who has been named. He or she has to make the difference clear again and again. Yet as far as she is concerned, she has cleared her name from the ledgers by copying the moves of the original Amelia Earhart. 

"By recreating and symbolically completing Amelia Mary Earhart’s flight around the world, I hope to develop an even deeper connection to my namesake and also encourage the world to pursure their own adventures." states Amelia Rose Earhart on her website.

"Amelia believed that, ‘adventure is worthwhile in itself’ and it is that type of attitude that spurs us to seek the unknown, push our limits and fly outside the lines."

There are others too who face the selfsame problem although not on a similar level. Abraham Lincoln is a man named after the President of the United States who rid the nation of slavery. 

He was once even arrested over the fact that the police thought he was joking when he told them his name. And then there is another person who is named Justin Bieber! You can well imagine the consequences for the poor soul!
