Inquiring minds want to know, is my name really Ritz? Well, no it’s not. My real name is Maritza, but having heard my real name pronounced a million different ways, I decided it was time for a nickname. So what kind of nickname can I have with a name like Maritza? Mari, Mary, Rita, Mar, nope, those didn’t suit me one bit. As I looked at my name closely, I could not help but notice those four little letters that stood out…maRITZa, aha, that was it!! It took a little while before my friends got used to the idea, but till this day, most know me by Ritz.
So who calls me Ritz? Mainly friends, family not so much LOL. I usually refer to myself as both, depends on the day :).
So there you have it, for those who have asked. Take your pick, call me Maritza or Ritz, I’ll respond either way.
