Why do some people keep weird names?

I've always wondered why people choose to keep their names when they are so embarrassing. You know like Mrs.Dork or something like that lol

  • While strange, they might feel like it is a part of their identity.

  • It may not seem wierd to them, or they're used to it, or they may like the idea that's it's wierd, and wonder why someone would like a common name. Different strokes for different folks.

  • My parents knew a woman named Dorcas (dork-us). She was called Dorcas, not Dori or anything else. She was much older and when she was born, dork wasn't an insult. Shows you how language changes...

  • What is weird and meaningless in your opinion, doesn't make it the same in someone else's eyes.
