  • I think alot of kids go thru some stage of not liking their name or want to change it..I think its a part of getting some independence or somethings like that..
    I went thru a very small stage of that when i was in the 2nd-3rd grade. but generally ive aways liked my name since it was not very common.

  • My daughter was named Heather Leigh, and she said she didn't like her name. I asked her what she would have liked. She said that she would have rather been named Sarah Leigh. My reply on that one was, "Oh, you mean to tell me that you would rather be named after a pastry?" She made no comment.

  • My daughter's name is Cassandra but we have always called her Casey.  She hates Cassandra and wants to legally change it to Casey.

  • Hasn't happened yet but mine are pretty young still, I hated my name growing up I thought it was too boring and wanted something cooler sounding. I'm fine with it now.
