Do you like your real name? If not, what would you change it to?

My name's Gabriella (most people call me Gabby or Gab though). I like my name but because I usually introduce myself as Gabby or Gab most people assume it's Gabrielle, which is kind of annoying.

  • It's okay, I don't love it or hate it. I wish I had started introducing myself as my nickname a long time ago, but it would just add too much confusion.

  • Are we talking First name or surrname? My First name is okay. One of those ones which has been in the top 200 most common male names for a good few hundred years but never been in the top 15. Common enough no one thinks about it, uncommon enough I've never been knicknamed "alternative X", "tall X" or "X with the Y".

    Dont like my surrname though. It's an anglcised spelling of an anglo norman coruption of an old English placename which is a variant of a type of tree... so a lot of people stare at the spelling. No one ever pronounces it correctly... and unfortunatly an of shoot of the family went to Ireland mis spelt their surnames (presumably because the locals couldn't pronounce it) and then went off to america and bred like rabbits... and I dont need that asociation.
    ... But if I changed it my father's family would kill me. Last male decendent blah-de-blah.

  • When I was younger I used to love the name Samantha. I wished that was my name. I thought my name was kind of boring and there were always at least another person with my name in my classes at school. But my name is spelled differently than normal and I've come to embrace that and love it.

  • Ehh... It's okay. I would change my first name to my middle name I just think it suits me better but what's the point in that when I can just get called by my middle name? Lol

    But I would definitely change my last name from my father's to my mothers god it's humiliating 😒
