Wakefield is the last name I chose.
Pulled it from a song without overthinking it.
Beasley was the last name I was born with.
My friend Leigh loves etymology and looked it up.
Beasley means bent grass in a clearing.
The name was first found in Warwickshire
30 minutes down the road from Leigh’s house.
The first official record of the name appears to be of one Gracia Beesley on a church document stating that she married William Wackfield.
