  • I hated my name growing up. When my grandparents adopted me when I was 15, I wanted to totally rid myself of any connection to my parents because of all the neglect and every kind of abuse, so the judge let me change my full name instead of just my last. I wish that my grandma had let me pick a name higher on my list of favorites, because I think it would have suited me more, and I wish that I had kept my birth middle name (Elvira). But, overall I'm much happier with my name now. I LOATHED my first name and I've never met a single person with that name that wasn't a total bitch that I despised. When my teachers found out I was changing my name, one of them pulled me aside one day and told me that if she had to share a name with someone like that (referring to the one other girl in the school with that name), she would try to change it, too lol.

  • Yes, I'm satisfied with it....My name is Elizabeth Audrey...I'm called both, but I go by Audrey. I love my name. I'm weird with names and numbers though....My name matches my DH's and it's the same amount of letters.

  • yes, Domonique...I don't know any other name that would fit me...Although I did have a friend that used to call me Nicky...But I don't think that fit as well as my own name.
