I've been Brendan my entire life, so I've got no real reason to change that now. It's a unique enough name that I've only known a small number of people with it, but common enough that everyone knows how to say it.
Maybe if I grew up with a fairly common name like Joe, Matt or Steve I might have felt differently about my name, but I'm happy with it the way it is.
I can't think of anything in particular I would want to rename myself. Erin, though it is a boring name, suits me okay. Even if I could change it, it would be like an endless cycle. I'd get bored of one name and move on to the next one. I could be like...the world record holder for the most amount of legal name changes.
I used to dislike my name but now I'm used to it. I'd definitely change my middle name (just get rid of it.) I'm named after an uncle who has now turned out to be a jerk. Plus the name is pretty horrid.
As much as I dislike my full first name, I don't think I could ever change it. It's a boy name and I was named after my grandfather and dad (it's their middle name), but now that my grandfather is gone, I don't think I could ever change it. The name I go by which is short for the full first name is very unique. It was a common name in the 70's I believe, but spelled different. It's annoying that no one ever spells my name right, though. But eh...it's different and it's cute and I like it enough to keep it.
If I had to choose another name, I would change it to Allison and go by Alli. Though if you called me that now I would probably respond anyway. :P It's kind of close to my real name anyway, so yeah.
I'd completely remove my name, that way people would have to refer to me with only pronouns. Though that is probably not legal in most countries so I would go with the name Thirteen (the value of my name in scrabble)
I personally like my name, Lydia Ryan, but my bf found out about 2 days ago that his birth name isn't Brandon, but it's Tybor(tie-burr, for those who don't know how to pronounce it). I know it's weird, but I like it. He's going to find out tomorrow why his parents called him Brandon instead of Tybor.
I have no real issues with my name. It's not an amazing name or anything, but there's also nothing really wrong with it. By changing it, I'd need to inform everyone who knew me by my previous name and tell them why I'm changing it and answer loads of different questions and then I'd need to get my passport and other official documents changed and oh my god so much effort. So no. I'm not going to get my name changed any time soon.
Yeah, in a heartbeat. My name doesn't really suit me, I don't think, but what's worse is that it flows really badly with my last name. Like, I even have a hard time saying my full name unless I stick my middle name in there. xD It's kind of embarrassing when you have to introduce yourself and you can barely say your own name without getting tongue-twisted.
I'd change it to Nikita. That's been my favorite name (and my nickname) for years, some of my friends call me that anyways, so it wouldn't be too shocking of a change. And it sounds super classy with my last name!
I'd switch my middle name to make it my first name. My middle name is Danielle, which is much easier to appreciate than my first name, Savannah. I'm more than just a rolling grassland or boring city, darn it.
eyyy another Savannah? who also doesn't much like her name? wow here's a first!
Yeah. I go by Anna mostly because you can conceivably get that from Savannah. I've been going by Anna online since I was 10 or so and now I've started using it at work. Slowly but surely more people are using that than my proper name. If I were to legally change my name I think I'd end up being Anna Skye [which is my middle name] because why not. It's more fun than the name I have. And sounds better.
I like my name well enough, so I wouldn't change it. The cédille gets a tad annoying and sometimes I feel a bit annoyed that it's so typically French but that really doesn't matter much when you're not living in a Francophone country. If for some reason I had to change my name, I'd probably go for Antonin or Sebastian (can't stand overly common / short names), but as I said I don't really feel the need to.
My name's fine with me. Amanda means 'worthy to be loved' according to a keychain I once had. I like that meaning. I wouldn't change it though as I'm used to being called Amanda all my life, or Manda, as my close friends call me. If I had to change my name, I would go for either Hailey or Desiree. Those are my favorite names. :3
I'd change my name because my name is so common. It's Michael btw, and I know like 10 other Michaels. If I were to change my name, I would want the name Daniel. I always have loved that name for some reason.
