Did you ever wish you had a different name?

I used to want to change my name to Starr. My friends all had similar aspirational names, like cinnamon, cookie, brandi, ect...our parents all met with a resounding NO!

I wonder if my life would be different today, if I had changed my name to Starr when I was 13? lol

  • when i was a kid yes. when all those personalized items came out my name was never there =( or if it was it wasn't spelled the same way.

    which is kinda funny. i like my name now. because it's not totally different. it's normal but not necessarily "common".

    i can honestly say i don't have any friends with the same name as mine.

    it's marianne btw.

  • I always wanted to change my name to anything, but what it is, Tawana. I got a lot of different reactions growing up with that name, but now I love it, I mean it was a hand-me- down name from my grandmother, so I should love it.

  • Always! I have the second most popular name the year I was born. It sucks to always have to quantify who you are because there are 10 other kids in your grade with the same name.

  • I hated my name for a lot of my school years. My name is Kayla and there are a LOT of other Kaylas my age (I'm 22). I went to elementary school with two other Kaylas, and then in high school I think four others. And every other Kayla I knew was stuck up and acted like they were perfect. I felt like the name didn't fit me.
    But, I really don't know what other name I would like to have. I'm okay with mine now.
