    change your name?

    I seriously always have for as long as i can remmeber hated my name. (my username isnt my real name....btw)....;)

    My friends know how much i hate it and i have varied it slightly on FB but i still hate it :lol:

    I cant/wont change it to my middle name as i dont like that either. I dont want to offend the elders (my mum knows how much i dispise it though).... by changing it, however im not sure i can live the rest of my life with this name!!!

    Has anyone ever changed/thought about changing their name?

    random topic for saturday night :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I don't like my middle name but i'm okay with my first name, i changed the spelling of it though, just because no one can spell it right anyway so decided i might aswell spell the way i like it spelt.

    No I wouldn't as my dad picked it out. There are many shorten ways to say my name, the only one I truly hate is Sue.

    My dads name is William but everyone calls him Bill.

    people have shortened mine and i dont like it - its too ''harsh'' so ive softened it on FB... however i want to change it completely - and i dhave to do it before i get a job in the real world if i did!

    id do it while at uni but cant imagine the problems it would cause for uni exams etc... :s

    Shame you feel you want to change your name :( I know hubby hates his, he uses his second name as his first :D It's a good job I like my name cos I havent got a 2nd name to change it too :lol:

    My dad chose my name - Michelle - then he was the fiorst person to shorten it to Shelley, which most People know me as now :) wouldn't change it for the world

    For many many years I've (unofficially) shortened to my real name to something less stuffy and old-fashioned. I can just about stand my real name on paper, but I cringe when someone (parents usually!) calls me by my real name.

    Not sure if I'll ever change it, though.
