    Unhappy Should I keep this name?

    Having a dilemma..
    I am an Asian and my parents gave me a very big English name "Plato"
    I've used this name for over 25 years.
    Sometimes I think it's so weird because everyone asked me why this name since I moved to an English speaking country last year.

    How do you think about this name?
    Should I keep this name or just use my given name.
    Please help me a bit (

    I would go ahead and keep it. Plato is unusual, but actually pretty interesting and memorable. However, you should use your given name if it makes you more comfortable.
    Beatrix - Fleur - Minnow - Zelda - Fern - Winifred - Poet

    Wolfgang - Atlas - Huck - Abraham - Ernest - Ulysses - Fox - Alasdair

    Thanks Lerenard.
    Do you find this name too arrogant or any bad impression when you first heard a guy called this name?

    It's hard to say. I think a person has the ability to make more of an impression on a name than the other way around. This could be especially true for a name as uncommon as Plato. However, it would be funny / unfortunate for a kid named Darwin to fail at math and science.

    Thank you so much!!
    I'll consider about it seriously.
    I am very agree with you that personality is much more important than a name.
