What's in a name?

My marriage to Chad has brought many treasures in my life, one of which is the last name I now bear. Since I have been subbing at the Christian school in Lexington, I have encountered many responses to my last name. Whenever I am in a certain class for the first time, it never fails to have at least one student who blurts out, "That is the coolest name!" Of course, this leads to other discussions on my name, where it originates, what Chad is like, etc. I have known for a while that Mondragon is a town in Northern Spain, but I just learned that it means "Dragon Mountain." Quite fitting, I think. I couldn't resist including a picture of "Mondragon Bookstore and Coffee House!"
