  • More than one 'Norma Jean'

    Norma Jean was apparently a popular name in 1926, at least at the Carmalite Children's Home in Chicago, Ill.

    Norma Jean Skaggs, 83, of Campbellsville grew up at the Carmalite Home.

    At the same time, two other Norma Jeans lived there as well - one of whom later became one of the most celebrated movie stars of all time ... Marilyn Monroe.

    However, the nuns who ran the home changed two of the girls' names at baptism so they wouldn't all have the same name. Norma Jean Skaggs became Mary Jean Skaggs, and Norma Jean Baker became Elizabeth "Betty" Baker.
