Re: Do you like your name?

Unfortunately, I've been stuck with the name "Carlton Glenn" for over 36 years now.

It's just a weird name. Yuch!

Re: Do you like your name?

My name's Lorelai.. I guess I like it.. No wait no guessing I do like it.. But sometimes it's a bit too sweet-ish.. Anyway most people call me Rory.. Totally okay with that! Feel free to use it!

Re: Do you like your name?

Yes, it's just plain old Anne but it's never given me any trouble. I like that not many people are named that anymore and I like that everyone can say/spell it.

Meh, I have no problems with my name "Kate". I wish it was a bit more interesting though...I always liked the name "Katherine" for some reason

Re: Do you like your name?

My name's pretty uncommon here but not very uncommon in the west I suppose.
Most people spell my name wrong because they don't know it and I get very annoyed.
On a totally unrelated note, unicorn_purple, I'm south-Indian too! (hyderabad). Good to see some Indians here.

Re: Do you like your name?

My name's Audrey. I love it to bits...<3
I like my middle and last names too. My middle name is soooo Edgar Allan Poe.
And my last name is so sibilant. As a mad Snape fan, sibilants make me happy.

Re: Do you like your name?

I love it. "Yoana" is cosidered a beautiful name here, and many people say that to me when I introduce myself. It's the the female version of Ioan, which is the Greek version of John.

Re: Do you like your name?

I'm an Amy. S'okay, but I don't think it really suits me, especially since I'm so horrible and all I like that it's easy to spell and at the beginning of the alphabet, though. I always got to get changed first after Games in primary school Oh, and it's hard to shorten, which is why my parents chose it. Though I did have a friend who used to call me "A"...

There are a few Joelle's here...so if you were to come here...you'd get mixed up...I know about 3-7 different Joelle's. Spelled the exact same...so trust me...I didn't think that it would've been pronounced Joel.

I see there are a couple Patricia's on here...cool, cool. I know so many of them. I think I only call one of them Patricia...and the rest Pat.
Well my name is Trisha.
Not Patricia, not Pat...and not Elizabeth. Yes, I actually had someone ask me one time if my name was from the name Elizabeth. Which is funny cause my alias is Michelle Elizabeth Marie. Lots of people had asked me if my name was short for Patricia...which is a very common name...but no...it's not. And then they'd ask me if it's Trish...or Trisha. And I'd tell them...I go by both.
But Trisha by itself, as I've noticed...is not that common of a name...as far as I have seen. But I'm not sure if I like it or not. Sometimes I do...and sometimes I don't. Depends on who's saying my name.

Re: Do you like your name?

I cant say i like my name or hate my name, its just something i have gotten use to. my name i Tiana, though i get different names from people who havent heard of it before such as tania, tiara etc.
I have heard three different meaning for my name one is "most beautiful" another is "fairy queen" and the other is "gracious aunt" not too fond of that one.

My name is ALexandra/Alex too and it sucks. I get Ally, Al, Alla,Lex,Lexi and sandra all the time no matter how many times i tell people not too. It doesnt help that everyone has my name either. I'd much rather be named Aiobhin (Evan).

Re: Do you like your name?

My name's Whitney, When I was little I wanted to change it to my middle name, Rose, but now I like it a lot. where I live there is a big building named Whitney Hall, so at least everyone knows how to spell it :P You wouldn't believe how often people misspell my name! It seems simple to me! But I do wish that I had a name that easily lends itself to nicknames. I've only got Whit.
