I have one of the most common male names of the past 30 years. In school, there were always several other guys with my name. I always felt like one in a million, common as dirt. My name was picked from a crappy 80s show I don't give a hoot about, and it doesn't carry any family significance. Since it is so common, I can say my first name here. It's Matthew. Math, ew. It sounds like a comment about how much someone hates math. I don't hate math though. Matt sounds like door mat which you wipe your feet on. I have wanted to change my name for years. I tried a few years ago but I needed some form that never arrived. I will not say what I want my name to be, just that it's rare. One IN a million, not one OF a million. By the way, the word "Million" refers to the actual number, as there are literally over a million people with my name.
