Don’t like the name your parents gave you? (And a lot of us don’t) Then change it! Our parents normally have very good intentions but sometimes they miss the goal by just a smidge. Naming us after relatives, sometimes ones that lived 200 years ago, does not make for great names in society today. Now I have to admit that I do not understand some of the names people use today, If you can’t pronounce them, or it takes you a year or better to figure them out, maybe they aren’t so good. But as long as the person has the name is okay with the name, then what else really matters?
How to celebrate – Test out a new name for a day and see if you like it. Ask why you were given the name you have. Try a nickname out for size.
