Do you like the name your parents gave you?
I some people don't feel that their first name really suits them and would have preferred another - do any hubbers feel this way about their first name?
I love my first name. Unique, beautiful, and to the point. L-E-A-H
Loving. Enjoyable. Active. Homely.
I love my first name, Rachel. I've had it for 23 years and even if there have been times I'm not crazy about it my name has defined me and I like who I am.
I have always felt that Joshua is more of a kid's name than a grown man's. However, I ended up marrying a Rachel, which has obvious Biblical meaning...but then I became an athiest. Sorry, mom and dad.
I think my name fits who I am as it was relatively unusual at the time- Liam and it fits with my families Irish roots
At the time only really Liam Neesen was well known
Now lots of kids are called Liam and it's rising in prominence.
My parents gave me the name "Antonina" (my grandmother's name) so Antonina is the name on my birth certificate. But my father's sister said Antonina was an old woman's name, so I was christened with a different name which is the one I've been using. The first time I applied for a passport, I had to produce my birth certificate, which has my name as Antonina. So my passport has an alias. How cool is that? lol I love both my names. But a guy told me once upon a time, I didn't look like my name. I asked him what name I looked like. He said "Nicole" ... in my next life, I wanna be Nicole then.
I dont like my name, my whole name is Robert Allan, i dont like the Allan though. If i can i would like to change it something else
I don't really like my name. It is a combination of my dad's and mom's. I want to change it but i am thinking it's just a waste of money. So i'll stick to it! LOL
I am who I am...to belabor and criticize my parents' choices would be unproductive. Am I a "Debbie" or "Kathy" or "Suzie"?? No. I am Pamela. I never liked it until my mother told me it was a "derivative" of her birth name, Helen. So be it.
Today, I truly appreciate my unique name, and its spelling. I was unable to do this as a young child and teen.
For years, I resented my name, and my folks for giving it to me. Today, it has proven to be one of my greatest and most intimate gifts..............though, I still question their reasoning!
I like my name, as a teenager I shortened it from Jacqueline to Jacqui which I have used ever since. I was named after my Dad who is Jack. I will cherish it always because of what it means.
I personally feel good for the name my parents gave to me. Some parents always want to name their children after things that have a meaning to it. Some names for their religion or some names that isn't really known or popular. But there are some parents who don't put enough thought into naming their kids.

Did you ever wished you named your children differently?We had our first born's name picked out almost the moment we knew I was pregnant. However, after signing the birth certificate, I had this urge to change his name. Instead, that name went to the second born. Sometimes I still...

If the various race anti-discrimination laws were to go how much racism do you think would prevail in America? Is America's tolerance, acceptance and even embrace of diversity a superficial and shallow thing that must be legislated to maintain? Ron Paul is for getting rid of these laws and it is...

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Arizona cannot require proof of citizenship for voter registration. HUH???? Sorry, I'm all for legal immigration, but voting is a right reserved for U.S. citizens - not for illegal immigrants. When American citizens are convicted of drug crimes, their...
