YOUR name

Do you have a name that could be shortened or lengthened, and people call you one when you wish it would be the other? For example...

Your name is Jennifer and you wish people would call you Jen, but they always call you Jenny...?

My name is Christie-Lee, but my whole life I've always just been called Christie. Only 2 people have called me by my full first name.

Anybody wish their name was used in the sorter/longer version?

  • My name is Cassandra and people call me Cassie, or Cass. I really like my name. I used to hate it but as I got older I learned to love it. Except when I get tons of Wayne's World references!

  • When I was younger everyone called me Jessica or Jessi, but I preferred Jess. I finally just started telling everyone to call me that, because otherwise, I felt like I was in trouble.
