It was long.
It was hard to spell and hard to pronounce. At least it seemed that way to my teachers.
I was a little bit envious of the Jennys and Amys and Sarahs. These names were so common. Everyone knew how to pronounce them. And you didn't stand out with a weird name.
So, I was a bit intrigued by this week's Monday Listicles theme (chosen by Coletta).
10 Names I Would Have Named Myself
Of course, I love my name now that I'm older. I love how I was named after my great-grandmother (my mom's mom's mom). I love how it's unique and uncommon. To be honest, it's been years since I've even thought of having a different name, so this list is mostly names I would have named myself today, not necessarily names I'd dreamed of back in the day.
Do you like your name? Would you have named yourself anything different?
