My real name's Janna. A unique name for sure haha, but I think it looks and sounds pretty nice! Most people mispronounce it though. D: It's John-uh and the J is a J, not a Y sound.

Don't think I'd change it, nope! There are a few names I'd like to have, but not enough to actually drop mine.

I personally don't feel comfortable sharing my real name online, even tough it's incredibly common, but that's just because I'm cautious and don't really share anything online. I think the most I've shared is my age, country and POSSIBLY my timezone, but that's it.

I like my name, but I kind of dislike it. :/
I go by a couple of names/nicknames, so whatever people call me sounds right, but whenever I think of my name, it just doesn't seem to fit me. Does that make sense?

I don't think I'd change it. I get confused enough as is when someone else with my name is in the same room, so having a new name... it'd just be so confusing. Plus I'm just used to my name. When I was younger I desperately wanted to change my name to Eli. ^_^ And then I think I wanted to be Zed or something? XD

Pretty cool name if you ask me! A little more exotic than the traditional biblical names imo.

What is your real name? (Optional)
My name is Michael!

Do you feel comfortable sharing it online?
It kind of just depends on the website, I guess. On here or other sociable websites, I usually just give out my first name only. On Facebook my last name is known, but that's really it.

Do you like it? Why/Why not?
Eh, I guess so... It's too common and boring (same goes for my last name). In school, whenever someone would misspell it as "Micheal" instead, and I'd just either tell them they spelled it wrong or jokingly tell myself to change my name to that so my name could seem somewhat unique. Unless there's someone who has it spelled like that already...? It doesn't show up as a spelling error, so it must be a correct spelling of the name! Just not mine.

Would you change it? (If yes, to what?)
I probably would! I really like the names Joel, D'mitri, Zeke, Zach, and other names I can't think of at the moment/don't want to list because there are too many.

My real name is Tara which the most of you probably know already. Considering I use my real name as my online handle I am obviously comfortable with 'sharing' it. It started when a friend of mine called me by my real name and thus people simply started using it. Then I didn't even bother coming up with a online handle to use anywhere else. I like my name, I don't have a problem with it. Why try to hide it? As mentioned, it is just a first name. While it's not a common name there is still enough Tara's in this world to where it doesn't matter too much.

My name (Weston) isn't too bad. I like its uniqueness (never met any other Westons) and how it sounds.Though I guess you can't guess what it means in old english.
Spoiler:
A West Town. Original. xD

I don't think I'd change it at all. And no, I'm not giving out my last name.

My name's Andrew, and I like it because it's a common name but it's not one of the most common you hear around. I generally have people call me Andy because I am very allergic to formality and wank, and I find 'Andy' much less formal.. I have no trouble giving it out online, it's just a name lol.

And no I wouldn't change it! I'd change my last name though.

Interestingly I had a conversation with somebody recently and asked them what their name was because I don't really like the idea of just referring to someone by their username, and he was like "I'd rather you not know if I can help it" and I was like "oh okay..." kind of awkward and just odd in general. Just tell me your name, freakazoid.

Dylan. It's derived from the Welsh word for "tide", and is a Welsh god of the sea. I was also born on the anniversary of Neptunes' discovery, a coincidence that I've always found interesting but probably unintended by my mother.

Do you feel comfortable sharing it online?
Yes, it doesn't change anything except maybe make things less awkward.

Do you like it? Why/Why not?
Yeah, it's okay I guess. In real life, I'm usually the only Dylan people know so that's nice. I was named after Bob Dylan which is a huge plus.

Would you change it? (If yes, to what?)
No.

I don't really like sharing my name online and I hate when people on PC call me by it. It's not often, but still lol! The only people that have done it are Gavin, Larry, and Klippy though so oh well. And Penatrait too probably. I am named after my paw paw and dad, but go by a shorter version of it that's spelled different from the norm. It's always misspelled on things and I never see any of those name keychains for it (you know the souvenir ones!!) and that used to make me sad as a kid. For those wondering, my real name is J-- OH whoa, gotta go shower bbl.
I call you by your real name all the time, J-dawg.

My name's William and it's dreadful. Spanish version is so much more badass: Guillermo. As for sharing it online, I really could not care less. I mean, finding my details from my first name only would be almost impossible and you're welcome to try. I'd be quite flattered you'd take the time to try. (:

If I was gonna change my name I'd change it to something Italian because they all have fancy, awesome names..

Rearrange the letters of my screen name after taking the x out. It should be obvious.

Do you feel comfortable sharing it online?

Only until I start hearing half assed "Use the force" jokes being thrown about like it's Mardi Gras.

Do you like it? Why/Why not?

I'm neutral towards it, not the best but far from the worst.

Would you change it? (If yes, to what?)

I'd go with Seth, no real reason other than the sound of the name clicking to me personal preference wise.

My real name's Alex, bet you couldn't guess that ;p I'm very comfortable with sharing it online, however I'm a lot more reluctant to share my surname. Not really sure why, I guess it's just an easier way for people to find stuff out about you, but I don't often give it out. I don't mind my name - I pronounce it slightly weirdly so I don't like it in that respect but otherwise it's a pretty cool name, it even has an 'x'! If I could change my name, I'd change it to Ryudo. That name means a lot to me and it's a pretty cool name imo, so I'd love to have it as mine.

My name is so common in almost every language. It's a simple three-letter word that can be easily memorized. And for those of you that don't know, my real name is NOT Megan! Megan is my online name short for Meganium. :)

To give you guys a few hints, it starts with an A and I shared it with a former Art Gallery moderator.

I'd like to change my name, yes! I like the name Logan or Morgan. Two great names, I must say. xD

Shawn. 8)

Do you feel comfortable sharing it online?
Actually funny story, when I first started online I went by fake names. XD All of my first friends on PC knew me by "Aidan" hahaha.

I don't remember when I decided it was time to stop lying about it. *shrug* It just seemed silly. When I was a kid though I was like petrified of sharing my real name, even to the point that I would get paranoid about screenshotting things that might like, have my computer's login/account name in there lol. (Like on Windows how it goes C:/Users/ or whatever.)

Do you like it? Why/Why not?
I like it sometimes. Depends largely on the day I guess. I don't typically meet too many other people named Shawn, or when I do they spell it Sean. Or if they spell is my way, they're women. Which is weird.

Would you change it? (If yes, to what?)
I've thought about changing it before to something totally unique, just because it seems strange to me that something as huge as a name can be shared with other people. It'd be cool if, like big company names for example, my name was just me.

I dunno, just something I've thought about before. I dunno if I'll ever actually do it.

Mohammed Rahman. But I'm known as Dipu cause Mohammed is too common and religious. And I have no problem sharing it, since Rahman's common, and Dipu isn't as obscure as you might think. Since I call myself Dipu, I'll talk about that. Yes, I like it. It's unique, which is something I like. And it just sounds cool (funny maybe, but cool)! I might change it officially when I'm older. Maybe.

1) Damon. Not saying my last name though, but it's Japanese, I'll give you that much.

2) Sure. Last name, nope.

3) Nope. I just don't really like the sound of it really.

4) Yes, but don't know what to. Anything that sounds more normal I guess.

Yeah. It gets weird when people that don't know you very well, or don't particularly like, start to call you by it though.

Do you like it? Why/Why not?
"Joe" is pretty average, if not the definition.

Joseph is pretty cool though, although nobody ever calls me by it. If ever they do I really appreciate it.

Would you change it? (If yes, to what?)
Only if I had a sex change or something like that, but I wouldn't stray too far I don't think.

Josephine? ^^;
