    :) Not Cute Or Funny

    I have always hated my first name and what made matters worse is that rhymed with my former married name. Argh. I had people giggling about my name and most people thought I was Mandarin when they would call me because of the odd spellings. I love my name if I can just go by my...

    Having the name Lilja is the hardest thing ever.

    And it is pronounced Lil-ya; it's Icelandic or something like that. I swear to Primus that I'm in the top ten of 'Mispronounced names for girls', if that even exists. And my friends pronounce it Lili-ya. Where do they get the second 'i' from!? Probably from their accent though...

    Always Hated It

    Ever since I was really little I've always hated my name. It's too common. I've probably met a billion Brittani's in my life. It's annoying. I've always wanted a crazy, wild, rare, unique name. I'm just not as boring as 'Brittani' sounds. =P This is why the whole world and...

    I just don't like it.

    I'll probably legally change my name over the summer, but i just don't know what i should change it to. The reason why I'm not changing it now is because i don't have the money right now, and I'm starting high school next year so I can have a fresh start with a name that I...

    ...I mean, it's alright, I suppose, but I don't know. I just never like the way it sounded. Plus it's one of those names that always conjures up the image of a little boy in his baseball cap, not a grown man. And don't even get me started on my middle name. The two just don't...

    People, Be Creative With Naming Your Children

    Actually, I have always disliked my entire name because i am a 'Jr.', named after my father. He is the single most destuctive thing i have ever endured, survived, encountered, and the name has always just reminded me that I am part him. I detest that. The only way it is worse...

    Hating A Unisex Name

    I use Sofia here because it's the name I nearly had and I'm tempted to change to it, so I'm exploring it as an identity. My birth name is one of the "unisex but spelt differently" variety like Terry and Teri, Jerry and Jeri, Tony and Toni, Billy and Billie, Francis and Frances...
