Did you always like your first name? If not, what would you have rather your parents named you?

Lol as a kid, I just really didn't like my name... especially my nickname haha. So like I used to ask my mom to go the court and pay to change my name to like Raven or Alicia (Ah-Lee-Cee-Ah) but she wouldn't give in dammit!

  • When I was 5 years old I didn't, don't know why and honestly I wouldn't take it seriously xD. Today I do, it's a common name where I live and it's better to have a good old common name than a weird one.

  • I don't mind it.
    The only thing I don't like is that Justin is like a stereotypical douche bag name lmao
    Like that episode of family guy where Peter finds out his real name is Justin so he changes his personality to match the name and he becomes a douche lol
    Or on Facebook I always see lists that say "Guys with these names are always fuck boys" and Justin is always on the list

  • My name is Mark, but I never really liked that name. My parents insisted on giving me a 'bible' name.

    Personally, I always thought Eric was a cool name.

  • I like my name but people in the USA have a hard time pronouncing it so I changed it. My dad is the one who suggested it actually. I decided to name myself after my grandfather who passed away. My family still use my birth name when around each other, but outside the family I use my new name.

  • I never liked my name, not even my middle name. My first name is a very common name here, so I can find women with this name everywhere.
    My middle name is awful. I feel like it has nothing to do with me.
    So, when you join them you get a horrible combination.

    I would like to be named Diana or Melissa.

      Yes! I got used to my first name but still hate my middle

    • 23h

      That's good! I think I'll never get used to my first name Lol

  • I went through a silly phase where I left the "h" off the end of Sarah and for a second when my parents said they almost named me Tracy I wanted that but overall I've been cool with my name.

      Oh yea lol. I'd like your name if it wasn't for Twilight

    • 2d

      Hahahha yeah I actually don't really mind those books... besides for the fact that they made my name's popularity skyrocket hahahah but honestly, that used to bother me more when I was younger. Now that 75% of people I'm in contact with are men (and therefore not named Isabella), I'm okay with it. I mean, I was gonna get an Italian name anyway, so it could be worse.

  • No I didn't like it because it's an old name I also hated it because people who couldn't speak my language always said it weird which made to worse. I prefer it when it's pronounced in my native tongue.
