Do you identify with your name? Meaning, do you see yourself as a John, Sally, or whatever your name may be?
I have too many names. I can't identify with any of them.
Sort of. I used to not like it; then I came to like it. I don't know that I exactly feel like "a Susan," though. Although, I'm definitely not "a Sue."
No, I identify with my nickname and penname. My birth name is too...feminine.
If you had to choose another name, what would it be?
Kris (der) or Mara.
I LOVE the name Mara. I think it's so awesome. It's up there with Kai :)
I have never felt like my name fit me.
I love mine. I think I fit it perfectly.
Or I guess I should say it fits me perfectly :)
My name's Madison, but I've been known to introduce myself by other names lol!
Hi! I'm Justin, but I've never really *felt* like a Justin... I always wondered if that was weird.
Not weird. I've never felt like I have the right name.
I'm not sure if it's weird... I have always felt disconnected from my name. Whenever I hear people talking about me a lot of the time it takes awhile to click. I fully intend to legally change my name.
I've thought about changing my name, but I have no idea what I'd change it to. I'm used to my name, even if I don't identify with it, so it's probably easier to leave it be.
That's true. Plus it might bother your family if you change your name.
I would change my name today if it wouldn't offend my mom...and it would.
Have any of you gone by a nickname? Mine doesn't lend itself to any easy ones, and I never got one growing up.
Nope. That's odd too, because pretty much all my relatives have a nickname that's used more frequently than their real name. Sigh....
Only Madi... which is worse. lol
