I don't hate my name but don't love it either. It's a bit too popular and at school there were 2-3 other Helen's in my class, so it got confusing! I prefer pretty or slightly unusual names. With my sons we didn't go too out there with name choices but we did try for slightly lesser known names
I love my first name.
It's not the name I go by on here, but my mother hated her name.When she had a daughter she said that she would choose a name......that was not used much.It would be a tad 'posh', and yet still known.
She did just that.
In my long life....I have only come across maybe a dozen people, with my name.
I truly love it....It can be shortened 10 different ways!!! and yet, people would know the full name.
I have never liked my name. Not only do I not like the sound of it, but no one ever pronounces or spells it correctly. Everyone else does seem to think my name is beautiful though. I wouldn't change it, simply because I am used to it, and it would be too much trouble.
I used to dislike it because it was very common around the time I was born so there were often multiple Jennifers in my classes at school, in places I have worked etc. I wouldn't change it though. I'm used to it now.
I always used to wish I had a name that ended in an 'ee' sound. Like Emily, Lilly, Chloe... etc. But now that I've grown up I've come to like my name. I still am never quite sure whether to call myself Natasha or Tash.
Nope. I've never really been a 'Tasha'. Occasionally I'm Tashy to my nieces, but I never know how to spell it (Tashy or Tashi or Tashie). So usually when I write my name it's Natasha, but most people call me Tash.
