  • Omg when i was little in school, i hated my name. teachers didnt know how to pronounce it right and i got made fun of for it. but after a while people got used to it and i enjoyed watching those people correct other people when they tried to say it. now that i'm an adult i love my name because its so unique although i vowed to never make my kids names as difficult as mine so i can spare them all that craziness!

  • I love my name! I think it's original and beautiful. However, I did often wish I had a different name. I think allot of kids go through that phase.

  • I don't care for it, but I don't hate it. I wouldn't change it, and I really have no other name preference.

  • I used to hate it because all of my siblings (5) had "normal" names and I was the odd ball. I grew out of it though.

  • No, I HATE my name. I hate the spelling, I hate how it doesn't "fit" me, and I hate how unoriginal it is. I would legally change it if it wasn't such a hassle..but I'm fine with going by my nickname - AJ. My Husband gave me that nickname because He knows how much I hate my real name. He is THE best. =]

  • Actually I like my name and always have. I gave up on correcting people and just let them call me what they want.
