What name would you have liked to have been called?
We don't choose our birth names if we did, what would it be? Something wild or would you keep the one you were given?
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.
Linda was the name I wanted when I was little, but as I got older I began to really like the name my parents gave me-Renee
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 love the name Shauna! I was born in 57 too. It was a very good year
Thankyou for answering Bravewarrior. Shauna is a good name and Bravewarrior is even better, it suits you
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 can relate to what it's like to have a common name. If I could have named myself, I would have chosen Ava Grayson. : )Kim
I do not have any complain with my name! 'Rachna' is a Hindi name and its English meaning is 'Creation'. I love the name given to me by my parents.
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 like that my name is pretty unique. The only other person I know that has it is my grandfather. I think though, if I ever became an author, I would mix my pen name up a bit...
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.
