I always had wished that I would have been named after my mother. "Margaret". When my mother chose my name my grandmother said to her it would be nice to name Susan, Margaret. My mother felt that because her name was Margaret and my grandmothers name was Margaret it would be too much.
I was named after my grandmother and didn't like it when I was young but I appreciated it when I got older, so I totally understand why you would have liked that. Thankyou for answering Just Ask Susan.
I have never liked the name Joanne so I certainly would not have chosen it and I don't know why my parents chose it. I always loved the name Christina so when I was confirmed and we chose a name Christina is the one I chose. To this day, I hate it when someone calls me Joanne. I tell everyone to call me Jo
I hated my name (Shauna) when I was little because it was unusual at the time (I was born in 1957). I was called Sharon or Charlotte by those who didn't pay attention. Now I like my name. However, when I was a young adult and frequented the bars, I would tell people my name was Joanne - not because I liked it but because I didn't want my unusual name (or me!) sticking in their minds!
Shauna fits me, but then again, so does Bravewarrior!
I like the name Bianca, my best friend's name, my name is similar so they often call me this name and I don't mine. It smells of the sweet grapes, golden vineyards reflecting in sun setting sun, Italy and a glass of rose sweet wine...
My name is Mike, which is a fine name but just way too common. I swear I have yanked my neck in shopping malls when some stranger has said, "Hey, Mike!" to someone else. There are several Mikes among my cousins and uncles, and one father-son combo is ALWAYS referred to as "Big Mike" and "Mikey-Mike". Here at my marina, there are so many Mikes that the joke is that if you forget someone's name, just call him Mike and you'll probably be right. For years now I've been going by Mik, a variation of my boyhood "Mickey", and it works much better.
Anyways, what would I rather have been named? Well, "Supreme Overlord of the Galactic Empire" or S.O.G.E. for short would have done nicely. Oh well, another lost opportunity . . .
I have two first name, and I would have liked to change the order in which they appear on my birth certificate. I would definitely have liked Veronica to be my first, first name. I live in a Spanish speaking country, and Veronica is easy to pronounce both in Spanish and in English, plus being a beautiful name.
I always think my name is special. My name is Candice Gryffinder. Actually, my dad's name Coly Griffinder. I liked the name Gryffinder very much because it came in the harry potter film and i really felt prouder. Candice is named by family and too my grandma and grandpa. I really loved that name very much.My friends always call me Candy Gryffin. I feel too icy when someone spell my name.

Did you name your child because you liked the name itself or was the meaning important too?We chose our daughters names because we liked them but we would have changed them if the meanings had not also been appropriate.
