Meh, not really. It's Aldridge, so the two A's don't go together, but I could always hyphenate it. It would be a mouthful though, ahah. xD

Re: Do you like your name?

I hate my name, Elsa. I wish I had a feminine name. :/

Re: Do you like your name?

Feminine? Elsa sounds very feminine to me.. But it's probably much more common over here.

Re: Do you like your name?

I think Elsa is such a beautiful, although I s'pose you would know more about it as you live with it..
Hannah is so common. But I get annoyed always having to spell out my surname that it's nice to have a fairly average forename.

Hahahaha, Kat

I don't like my full name, but I like the short version, which is Ally. But some people call me Al, AllyBally etc. My mum calls me Alexandra *shudder* and my brother calls me "sister"

Re: Do you like your name?

My name is Dylan. I am a girl.
I used to hate my name when I was younger, because people would always ask me, "Isn't that a boy name?"
Until the day I punched a kid in the nose, then nobody asked me about my name anymore.
I've grown to love my name. I'm not a very feminine person, I prefer flannel to lace, so I'm glad I don't have a girly name.
I also read a study somewhere that women with more masculine names do better in the legal carreer, and that's what I want to do, so it's perfect!
The only thing I can't stand is when people try to shorten my name down to Dill or something like that. There is only one person who I let call me Dilly-Bop, because she's my grand-mother.

Re: Do you like your name?

My name is Jacob. I hate it.

It's not that it's a bad name. It's just not me. If I was named what I should have been named, it would be something a lot more exotic & strange. A name no one else has. I really wish I had been named Severus. That name would be awesome! No one could confuse Severus with any other name. Also, it would be easy to pronounce. If only it wasn't already used in Harry Potter. Everyone would always ask "Severus? Like from Harry Potter?" And that would drive me nuts.

Re: Do you like your name?

I don't know. I go back and forth on it. My first and middle names have always been kind of... just there. "Nikki Sheree." And no, Nikki is not short for Nichole, which I always get, and which I hate. People always think they're being quite clever when they write down my name and put "Nichole" instead of "Nikki," and it drives me nuts.
Okay, actually, the more I think about it, the MORE I hate my first name. If it didn't feel too late, I might just start having people call me Sheree (like ya'll do on here. ). I like it much better.

Re: Do you like your name?

I like the meaning of my name. Alexandra - defender of man (or something like that). But mainly I'm just known as Alex or Lex. I spent most of my Primary School life getting teased about it from the stupid boys in my class "Alex is a boys name!". and now because of that I'm not a fan of my name.

Hey, my name's Bethany too! I don't like it for me, at least, I don't think it suits me at all.

Re: Do you like your name?

My name is Alexa, and I like it- it's short and pretty, and I'm the only one in my whole grade with that name. I've only talked to one other person in my whole life with that name, which I think is pretty cool. Most people just call me Alexa but my parents and friends will sometimes call me Lexi or Lex. It doesn't really matter to me anyway.

My sister, on the other hand, must have hated her first name because when she was in first grade she started writing her middle name on all of her schoolwork papers, which really confused her teacher. Haha. So she goes by her middle name now and it took me a really long time to get used to calling her that, especially since she would get REALLY ticked off whenever I accidentally called her by her first name...

Re: Do you like your name?

I like my name. When I was younger, my family tried to call me Peggy, but when my oldest sister called me Piggy, they soon gave up and stuck to Marge or Margie. My mom liked Margie becasue it reminded her of the t.v. show, My little Margie. I have no idea what the show was about because I was too young when it was on.

Re: Do you like your name?

I don't like it too much. It's Madalaine. I'm named after a song, which is cool and all, but I would much prefer to be called Serin. I just love it. It's the name of a star, too, and I love astronomy.

Re: Do you like your name?

I suppose if you don't like your name, you could set it aside as your "official/government" name and adopt a "personal" name for private/friend use that better suits you, like Tom Riddle/Voldemort.
