    I don't hate my name,

    Some people hate their name

    because it's weird or strange. But oh god, I hate my name because it's so generic, boring and common. I would love to changed my name but the problem is, I can't see myself with any other name.

    I don't hate my name,

    I actually quite like it. It just irritates the hell out of me when people spell it wrong! My name's Katy but people always insist on spelling it Katie! I hate it so much! Also, people always ask me, "oh is it short for something? Like Kathryn?" No!! It's literally just Katy, it...

    I Can'T Stand It

    And I'd imagine the 500 gajillion other women who share it with me can't stand it, either. It's not an ugly name at all. It's just that there are SO MANY OF US! I always hated having several other girls in my class with the same first name (I've even met two girls with the same...

    Tamika Paige Thompson.

    Tamika is such an uncommon name, it's not even on key chains or stickers or anywhere. Nobody has the last name Thompson. And The middle name Paige, well I have three friends with that middle name too so that's that.

    for as long as I can remember. Just thinking it makes me feel sick to my stomach. But anyone who hears it goes on about how "nice" and "pretty" it is. Am I the only one who thinks it sounds stupid? It doesn't help I share my middle name, Elizabeth, with a cousin I've wanted to...

    Levi. Because my dad came up with the name

    while he was high one day. Then a year after I'm born, he dies. To what you may ask, an overdose. Now I associate my name to my dad, who I never got to know. My mom couldn't even come up with a better name. Honestly, what kinda name is Levi?
