The Meaning of Audzipan

Everyone always asks me, "Where did you get that name?" Well, here's your answer. It is simply a nickname I acquired during my schooling years.

Start with my first name, Audrey. Subtract the end, and you have "Aud." Ok, that part is pretty obvious.

Moving onto the more mysterious part- "zipan". Many of you have probably stumbled across the website Homestar Runner. One of their characters is named Marzipan, just like the almond paste. My college roommate in 2005 had a friend named Mariah and frequently called her Marzipan. Since Mariah lived in another state, the moniker quickly passed to me, with a minor adjustment.

So, there you have it. Audzipan!
