Re: Do you like your name?

I hate mine, which is Allison. It's so boring and unoriginal so I always go by some sort of nickname. I just hate how it sounds.

I think your name is lovely...I like the ia sound at the end.

I used to hate my name (Oliver) and have consistently had people call me Ollie instead, but I've changed my mind now and like it alot.

In fact, the original pronounciation of the name is Sofia. It is spelled just like this here in Greece, it comes from an ancient greek word which is still used and means wisdom. Wisdom! isn't this beautiful?

My own one is Georgia. It is pronounced Yeoryia here, the y spelled like in "Yo maaan!" It is very common and means agriculture, but i feel nice having this name. (The funny thing is that my mother is called Dhimitra, which was the godess of agriculture!)

So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering
In the sun

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia

Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Hum hum hum hum... calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia


Seashell eyes? Windy smile? Shimmering glimmering hair? Well, my hair is naturally light blonde so I guess thats sort of accurate.
They named you after a song? Wow!!! That is amazing!

Re: Do you like your name?

I love my name. It's Tess. I don't know why, I guess because it's unique and I've never met anyone else, in real life, that has it.

Re: Do you like your name?

I love my name. It's Claire, and my middle name is Renee, and I like the way the last two letters of my first name are the same as the first two letters of my middle name.

Re: Do you like your name?

My name is Mallory. It means "Ill-Omened" and originates from France, so I'm told. I used to despise my name, and would force everyone to call me Mal. Now, I really like my name but most people still call me Mal.

Re: Do you like your name?

Yes, I love my name, Caryn. But I've never actually met another person with the same spelling as me, except for caryn_ca here on COS.

It's such a cute name. My cousin's name is Tussany but it sounds like "tess-a-knee" and I have no idea where it came from. My aunt told us "how she got her name" but I think she was kidding

Mine is Zina, and it's okay but I get a lot of "Warrior Princess" jokes. Oh and I hate it when people spell it Xena . But its short and sweet even though people call me Zine, to shorten it even more I guess

Re: Do you like your name?

Interesting. I have a "nasty common name"........Jeremy. Well, it's not that common but I wish I had a weird name like Alastor......yeah that would be cool. But I suppose I like it somewhat.

Re: Do you like your name?

I don't think I would ever give my kids a strange name. Not a totally common one either though. But something nice
