    my name is Keira, and I don't have a massive

    problem with it but I prefer being called Keir. My mum doesn't agree with it because she says it's a boys name but everyone else calls me it.

    My name is Katelyn. Its very common

    where I'm from. I just don't like it because its so common. There's nothing unique about it. I don't think it suits me.

    I really don't like my name at all!

    The thing my name is a thing that shines with something else's light, someone else makes it beautiful, it is not beautiful by itself. But I want to make others shine with my light, I don't want to shine with someone else's light. I really hate my name for it!

    I thought this was a neat group to stumble upon.

    I've never liked my name, but like most things that are permanent, you deal with it. I prefer Ash on a normal basis, but if someone calls me by my full name I don't mind. So my name is Asheton. There are two questions that usually follow up when I show someone this on paper. 1...

    All my life, I was always known

    as Gemma Smith. But my real name is Gemma Hawthorne. Not a lot of people know this.... no-one ever asks and plus I don't like the constant questions about why I have always been named Smith and not Hawthorne. I was given my Dad's last name at birth (Hawthorne) then my parents...

    It means intelligence

    and beauty , and they expect it of me. That is why I don't like my name, they are like a brand claiming that yes, I am related to them and I hated it. It has been getting better lately when I started easing up to the idea but I still dislike it.

    Well my real legal name is Jennifer.

    It even feels weird just to type that. People call my Jason, which is a lot better than Jennifer. I think later on down the road I'll finally change my name.

    It's not the name itself,

    the name is ok i guess. It just doesn't fit me. I would relate that name to a fashion girl which I'm absolutely not. I'm trying to find a good nickname and I keep asking people what name they think would suit me. That's always very interesting to hear.

    I don't like my legal name.

    It's not bad at all, but it's a female name. I'm hoping to get it legally changed after I come out as trans to my dad.

    I Have A Common Name

    Hi, my name is julia. I'm one of the thousands. You probably know a julia, or a few. Well, it's not that I have anything against the name, it's more about how common it is. I hate being mainstream and the problems of having a popular name are so annoying. I've also never felt...

    My name is Britney, not Brittany.

    Only thing I like is that when people say I'm a brat, I correct them and tell them I'm a Brit.
