If you could just change your name in real life on a whim, would you?

If yes, what would it be?

If no, what would be some reasons not to?

Nope! I really like my name. I've been known for so many years as Nathan, and I shall be staying as Nathan for the rest of my life.

You better not change your name, Curious. Nathan is the best male name I've ever heard.

I'm pretty content with Hannah. I find it pretty awesome, and it matches me, or so my friends say.

    no, I'm pretty much okay with Le Roi, well I'd probably just drop the "Le" part...it makes me sound like an annoying internet meme.

      I'm ok with my name (I reveal to no one) it suits me but if I was forced to, maybe Daniel, I've always liked that name, sad about what happened to Daniel though :'(

      Hmm, I do like my name (Nichole) but sadly almost everyone here spells it wrong.

      The reason why is because the spelling is so similar to the name's most common spelling, which lacks the "h" seen in my variant of the name.

      If I could change it, I don't even know what since I can't picture myself in a different name given how unique my name's spelling is.

        I would not like my English name (or whatever you call that), and my Chinese name will be romanized in Cantonese, not some hanyu-pinyin.

        I don't like my name. But I also don't know what I would want it to be. So I guess I'm stuck with it.

        No, I wouldnt. I like my name, everyone knows me by it, it would be a pain to tell people to call me a different name all the time, change it on everything, etc. My name is often misspronounced by people but I dont want to change it.

          I would, and I have been meaning to do so for quite a long time. Still sorta undecided on what to change it to, but I hate my name anyway.

            I would only change the spelling. I like my name, but it is just so plain and boring haha. I'd also change my last name because my current last name isn't really mine.... so it just feels dumb walking around with it.

              I wouldn't change my name. It's who I am, and it would
              be a hassle to change it to something new.

                I already changed my name! It was necessary though, since obviously there are no girls named Andrew. I like Amanda though. Not really sure where I got it from, but I already feel like it's part of my identity already.

                Now if I answer the question from this point in time, I definitely wouldn't change my name again haha.

                No thanks! I really like my name! Even if it does (for dumb reasons imo) annoy people since it's spelled 'Tara' but pronounced like 'Terra'. If they want to pronounce it the other way they can. I don't care. But I'm not changing how I spell or say it. And definitely not changing it to another name completely.

                I would probably change it to something like Cole or Chad, or perhaps something sophisticated like William. Anything is better than the triteness of David.

                  I wouldn't change my name, it describes who I am. Though a lot of people call me Christina instead of Christine, which annoys me a little.

                    No! I love my name, and can't imagine it being anything else. Being called by something different would just feel so.. Strange.

                      I'd change my name as my name Kerri is too common around my part of the world. I'd change it to Sashade after my OC Sashade Benson.

                        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.

                        I like Patrick. In fact, I like it more than using an internet alias, and almost never use an alias anymore. And I would've, too, if I didn't feel apprehensive and lazy simutaneously when signing up.

                        In fact, I'd prefer to be addressed as Patrick as long as you know that's what my name is. dbp is so lazy and weird. As far as iRL goes, I can't say I'd ever want a different name. It's not too unique, not too overused.

                          Hmm, I'm okay with Fritz :3 That's not a very common name in my place. Even though sometimes people compare it to Ritz the crackers and drinks, Im still fine with my name xD

                          Oh, god. I hate my name so much. It does not describe me at all! I have no clue what I'd want it to be, though. Maybe something unisex like Pat. I don't really even like Pat.
                          I dunno, I'll stick with Emily. :(

                          No, I don't think I would. It's only a name, it's not that important, and I like mine anyway. I'd keep my first name definitely, but gun to my head I might change my last name to something that goes with more stuff. Last names that begin with R tend not to go with a lot of first names and flow smoothly, so I'd change it to something with a hard-sounding first letter.

                          I really don't like my name, but honestly, any name I would want to switch to would also require a gender change, so all in all, I'll stick with the name I have. At least it's not something weird lol
