    My name is Phoebe, I was named

    after Phoebe from friends. I think it suits me. I'm glad I wasn't a boy. If I were a boy I would have been called sheamus, I do not like that name one bit.

    I used to be embarrassed by my name Elaine,

    because I thought it was too old fashioned. Now I'm glad I don't have a name like "Mighkaeylah" or "Kassideigh-Jaillee" or some other god awful creation. I'm not trying to be elitist here but some parents try too hard these days to give their children "unique" names.

    I guess since I didn't have a choice in

    choosing my name at birth, I have no choice but to like it and I do. The only thing I did NOT like about it was how ignorant peers, growing up, used it to bully me. It defiled a part of me and the scars remained for a long time. Liezel is a weasel Eazy leazy @ the age of 10 (I...

    Rubye Tuesday Who Could Hang A Name On Her?

    I didn't like my name growing up how many Rubys and Francines do you hear about even today.  Cindy, Kathy, Mary, Julie, Terri and the oh so popular Debbie were the norm  when I was in school. My childhood names were Chickadee later shortened to Chick, and teen the jelly bean...

    Jeanette.

    I used to hate my name, i thought it was too plain. Now i actually kinda love it. When i see it written down somewhere it looks sorta...pretty. I probably sound a little conceited right now. I don't mean to. So, the story behind my name makes me appreciate it a bit more. When my...

    My name is not really in English to be honest.

    It's in Mohawk, which is a Native American, which is what I am of course. I have had people from this site telling me that they like my name. I actually tried to find a good English name for myself but it was either taken or just not really what I want. But I like my Mohawk name...

    My Name Is Mya

    Greek for mother or nurse, and I think it suits me.  It's always misspelled by others, and when it's spelled correctly it's usually pronounced wrong, but I love it, three simple letters, that fit me well.

    My name is Jubilee. Lots of people like to

    point out that I share my name with an Xmen. They don't need to, though, because I am a really big Marvel fan. (Btw Jubilee is not the worst Xmen.) They also like to come up with nicknames for me. Such as Jubi, Juju, Jujubees, Jubaloo, and Jubles. I must thank my friends for...

    My given name is Katarina-Svetlana.

    But in The U.S., I was simply called Katherine. It's sort of weird-if you call me Katarina, I won't respond.

    well except for a couple of times... My entire life I have been bullied in school, I won't talk about it all here and now, but one thing that used to happen is that they 'took my name' and names other things my name, then they destroyed it. It could be a doll to a drawing.. They...
