would you do this

I hate my first name Marjorie I would like to change it I'm not sure what I would change it to but It would definitly change. I would like to know what you guys think about this. Yes my mom named me after her mother,but only cause she couldn't think of any other names. I've told her I can't stand it and that its weird to say and I just plain hate it. I dont know how much this would cost to change but was hoping if you or anyone you know has done this could you tell me about it!? Thanks

  • I don't know much about it either but I think Marjorie is one of those good solid names, you really don't here anymore. But if you hate it then look into it. I know you have to go to court.

  • My mom really doesnt like her first name, after my dad died she went through a really strange phase in life and during that time started going by her middle name. It is a little confusing when my siblings and I visit and our spouses use her first name around her new friends who call her by her middle name but it makes her happy so we dont really say anything about it. To the family though we will always use her first name.

    She didnt change it legally she just stopped using it, as far as all her identification goes it has her legal name.

  • Have you ever looked up the meaning of your name? It means pearl. You are a pearl how precious is that!

    The girl's name Marjorie \m(a)-rjo-rie,
    mar-jorie\ is pronounced MAR-jor-ee. It is of English origin. Variant of the French Margery, from Margaret (Greek) "pearl". Brought to England in the 12th century as Margery, and used steadily until a late 19th-century revival. Literary: The name was made famous by Herman Wouk's "Marjorie Morningstar".
