Re: Do you like your name?

My name's Hannah and I don't particularly like it. Where ever I go there's always one other girl called Hannah. Wish I had a more unique name.

Re: Do you like your name?

My name's Oli...I do love my name but the only problem is before I was born Oliver wasn't a common name so my parents thought....'Great let's be different'.....but all of England's parents seemed to think it at the same time and now Oliver is the most common name in the UK......... but I still love Oli (My nickname is Jeff)

Re: Do you like your name?

I don't mind my name. I did for about the second half of my freshman year start going by my middle name, but that was because the office/teachers always thought that was my first name

Re: Do you like your name?

My name is Sarice, and I LOVE my name! Even though it may not mean the most wonderful things in Hebrew, it means princess in Greek, and cherry (the color i believe) in French.

I also love that I haven't met anyone with my name yet...it would be pretty cool though!

Re: Do you like your name?

I love my name now that I'm older. When I was younger, I thought it was too common and not different enough. My first name is Sarah and my middle name is Kathryn. My middle name is after an aunt and I've only met one other person who spells it this way. I like when my mom calls me by both names because it sounds pretty and elegant. I really don't care one way or the other about my last name. It's definitely not elegant and kind of country-sounding but what can you do.

Re: Do you like your name?

I like my name now, but I wasn't too fond of it when I was younger- it thought it was weird :P
(It's Veronika) I like the fact that it's spelt with a K and not a C, although because of that reason, most people misspell it. Oh well!

Re: Do you like your name?

My name's pretty alright. I'm not complaining. My full name means 'White maiden who is noble/kind and the daughter of famous/awesome power'. Sounds pretty intimidating, eh? Well yeah. Kind of used to wonder what another name would be like but this is the name I've got and I'm sticking it out.

*plooka plooka*

Re: Do you like your name?

I don't really like my name.
My name is "Anna", and there have always been at least two Annas in my class when I was at school. That was really annoying ~__~
In addition to that, I just don't think the name fits me that well; I'm not a typical girl or woman, but I've always associated the name "Anna" with real feminine girls. Perhaps because most other Annas I know are exactly that.

Ich heiße Teresa Madeleine. I go by Madeleine, and I quite like it. I'm not the biggest fan of Teresa though.

Re: Do you like your name?

Very much so I don't have a very common name and I like the meaning of it as well.

Re: Do you like your name?

I kinda hate my name, it's Masja, nobody ever gets the spelling right. I usually go by 'May' but my favorite nickname is 'Razor', I dunno why. It was given to me online (as a shorter version of my nickname) and I think it fits my personality (for several reasons, one being 'having a sharp edge' the other one I'm not mentioning because it's a family forum (but I think you can guess (no, it's not that I'm a very hairy (or bald) person))). May, I gave myself in elementary school (as a shorter version of my name, and because I liked Pokèmon), and I think it's getting rather old (mostly because Pokèmon isn't broadcasted in my country any more, and May not being in it any more for years). Also, I find it rather childish to have a nickname from Pokèmon...

Razor has grown onto me, it has become 'me'. When I see the word 'razor' somewhere in a sentence, the first thing going through my mind is 'me'. But well, I don't have friends, and my parents just call me 'Masja' so it's actually quite useless to have nicknames, I just happen to like this one.

Re: Do you like your name?

No, I don't.

(The name on my About Me page is not my "real" real name, it's my "real" penname, the shortened version of Goddess_Clio as in Clio the Greek muse of history. To be clear, I don't think I'm a goddess, it's just what I chose for a penname. Goddess Clio sounds better than Muse Clio.) =^D

I was originally supposed to be named after my mother (Rebecca) whose name I do really like (go figure) but she was saddled with a nickname she didn't like as a child because another girl shared her name (they became known as Big Becky and Little Becky - my mom being big Becky) and she hated it so I got stuck with a name I don't like and a middle name I do like.

I be fair to my mom, I would have prefered being called Becca rather than Becky thereby eliminating her being stuck with big Becky again, but alas.

Re: Do you like your name?

My parents wanted to call me Katie or Mary. My brother put them together at age 4 and said "How about Kari?" That's my name now, shortened for Katherine. I think it suits me. I liked to be carried as a young girl... and I like the spelling too. There are so many ways to spell Kari, and I think this one suits me best. Thank goodness my parents didn't name me Kate, that just would not suit me. Few people call me Katherine: my best friend, my grandmother, people who read my name on formal documents and my parents when I'm in trouble. Also, my name is also a verb, so that gets confusing in a fun way...

Re: Do you like your name?

I like the English version of it which is Emily but in Greek it is pronounced more like e-mee-lee-ah, or so. Don't really like it so my friends call me Emy.

Re: Do you like your name?

It took me years to come to terms with my name. Sometimes I still cringe when someone rhymes it with banana though.

Re: Do you like your name?

It's an ok name, I guess. The only issue is that it is said to me everyday, making my ears accustomed to the word. As such, any interest and/or excitement that it might have provoked initially, due to its sound, is long gone . It's the same old, same old. And I think this would apply to any given name, not just my own.

Re: Do you like your name?

My name in Sanskrit means 'divine power'. So, I have no choice but to like it. I mean, how can anybody reject a name that means 'divine power'?? The main problem is that it is quite a common name. Therefore, I am mixed about it.
