F E R R I S S || growing up I didn’t like my name, and wanted to change it to Raquel or Roxanne lol! Too, I could never find the meaning of my name, it was hard to find and especially with the extra “s” - so I created a meaning based on Ferrus on the period table of elements, “FE” - is #iron one of the strongest #metals , so I started telling folks my name meant #strength - soon tho I started learning the #etymology of my name - it has #arabic roots and means #knight or #warrior , as it’s been translated down to #greek in meaning #rock or #stone - sooooo with all that I can say my parents unknowingly picked the BEST name for me ever!!!! Thru out time of trial now and in the past my strength has held me down, my resilience and my warrior spirit have all been great aides! - There is so much in a name! Thinking of giving the name to my daughter one day! - Horn headpiece by Caley @missgdesigns

I grew up in St Louis after our family moved there from England. The racial segregation is really bad. Many white people in St Louis (especially in STL County) are truly racist and bigoted.
