Do you like your name?
I actually do like my name. My parents got it from a song in the 60’s, though I’m not sure they spelled it the same way the song did. I get alot of compliments on my name: KariAnn.
I do love my name also, but I found it very common… Way back in my school days, it never happened where I have no similar name with my classmates.
But since my parents chose it for me… I should love it.
I LOVE my name. I keep hearing “Hey Carrie Anne what’s your name now can anybody play” running through my head right now!!” I can hum it!!
I was a Christmas baby and it was Joy or Holly and I’m so glad I’m Joy. I do, I love my name. I couldn’t ever get a Key chain or anything in “tourist traps” because all the names said “Joyce” but it’s okay, I’m an original.
Wow! I like my name and it’s Kerri-Ann. How ironic is that? My mom loved it. I’m a early 70’s baby.
My name is alright, but I don’t think I love it! I was called Susie growing up until about 8th grade and then it became Sue. It’s short and simple, nothing great.
I love my name because it’s really the only thing my Dad gave me that will last forever. He choose my first name, Nicole and my Mom choose my middle name Rachelle. Most of my friends call me Nicole. Almost all my family calls me Nikki. I actually feel like I’m in trouble now when I’m called Nicole by my family, Sue does it once in awhile:) As I have gotten older I introduce myself as Nicole. Pretty much only my family can call me Nikki.
I’ve never liked my name. As a child i hated it. As an adult it doesnt bother me anymore.. The other names my mom considered were much worse..LOL..
Oh I know Tosha- my Mom wanted to name me Jamielyn!! I’m sure glad my Dad won that one!!
Trinity’s answer- Yes, I like my name because I’m the only one in my school!
I was so happy when I came up with this name and my husband heard it and said, that’s it, that’s her name! It’s pretty, it has meaning, and you won’t find many Trinity’s around.
I love the name Trinity. It fits her perfectly. Trinity Joy, it just sounds good:)
Bailey’s answer- yes, I share it with my best friend!!!!
I thought Bailey Donald was a strong name. We were calling him Bailey long before he was even born.
I love Bailey Donad, my dad’s name and I love Trinity Joy, my name and also Christopher Paul since I named Toby that. I love all their names.
I do like my name. Jane is plain but my family and everyone I know calls me JJ. I’m really only Jane on blogs because it’s my email address. It’s for JaneyJo, after my dad and grandpa.
I do like my name 🙂 – I like that in a time when Indians (with Hindu names) were being given very long names, my parents opted for something sweet, but practical. They didn’t want me taking forever to fill out forms – and it’s the name of a Hindu goddess, so what more could I ask for? 🙂
my mom is reading this. .. .. .. I don’t mind my name but it comes with too many nicknames. I’ve always thought of myself as a Thor or maybe Thundersmack. You don’t mess people with names like that. Only family calls me jason everyone else calls me Money. It’s the coolest nickname I’ve ever had.
I should have named you Thundersmack!! Then you would have had real issues!!!!
I love your name and named you when I was 15.
My husband suggested Thunder Kiss instead of Thundersmack. Of course, he’s referring to the Rob Zombie song by that name. Where’d you come up with Thundersmack?
I used to HATE my name. It is so simple I felt it was way too boring. I told my mom I should have been Wendy or Debbie. Her answer: you’re sure you want to be “Wendlyn” or “Debra”? She also said she wanted to give me a name that nobody would turn into a nickname ending with “-ie” but that happened anyway. She further told me that my dad wanted “Melanie” (which always made me picture a huge watermelon) and my mom wanted “Sandria” so my name was a compromise (it’s nothing like Melanie or Sandria though). I was always the only person with my plain, boring name, and I didn’t consider that a plus at all.
When I got older I looked into the meaning of my first and middle names and decided I really like both of them and the combination. It is unusual because the middle name is less plain than the first name. And I actually relate with the meaning. So maybe my parents knew what they were doing after all.
I put a lot of thought into my daughters’ names, but I hold no hope that they will appreciate my sentiments, at least until they are old enough to think like me.
My name was Diane when I was growing up and I never felt like it fit. I couldn’t stand to hear people call me that. I always loved my middle name, Elena, but my parents wouldn’t let me go by that. When I was 21 I decided, it’s now or never, and so I changed it. I took on the last name Margo after my first marriage ended badly. I didn’t want to depend on a man for anything at that point, feeling quite bitter, so I took Margo from my mother and grandmother’s first names, Marguerite. I realized that if I used their maiden names, it would just be another man’s name.
Luckily I was able to relearn trust and interdependency, and got remarried to a wonderful man named Gould. I didn’t want to lose the individual strength I’d found, but I didn’t want to hold myself separate from him and his wonderful family, so I decided to have two last names. Now when I see old papers and things with just “Elena Margo” on it, the name looks incomplete.
Yes, I do love my name!
Well I guess for that.. you’d have to read my post on the subject:
