"Kids were mean in grade school, but then they all thought my name was awesome in high school. Most people mistake my name for Destiny because I'm a girl or Daisy. I was born in 1977 and was named after a cowboy in a western movie because my mom loved westerns, but I'm always asked if I was named after dusty Springfield or dusty roads" Jul. 1, 2017:

"Dusty Springfield was a well-known English songstress who at the height of her fame in the Swinging Sixties sang 'I Only Wanna Be With You', 'Wishin and Hopin', 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me', 'I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten', 'Son Of A Preacher Man', 'The Look Of Love', 'In The Middle Of Nowhere', 'Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa', and 'Stay Awhile'. She was born in 1939 as Mary Catherine Isabel Bernadette O'Brien and unfortunately died of cancer in 1999, being awarded the O.B.E. posthumously. She made a brief comeback into the pop charts in the second half of the Eighties when she duetted with the British pop duo The Pet Shop Boys when they sang 'What Have I Done To Deserve This' in 1987, and then sang, in 1989, 'Nothing Has Been Proved', one of the songs featured in the 1989 film 'Scandal' about John Profumo's affair with Christine Keeler in the Sixties."
