Am I crazy?
Hi I'm 19 and I decided I wanted to change my name about a year and 3 months ago. I've been visiting name sites but this is the first time I've ever posted about this. My name's Jessica and I hate it. I don't like the way it sounds or feels and it's too popular and boring. I've had to go by Jessica C. or "the other Jessica" multiple times. My middle name's even worse(Marie) so that's not an option. I know that my family and current friends will still call me Jessica or "Sica" but I don't mind. I'm changing colleges next year(out of state) so I think it would be the perfect time to change my name. I'm slighty scared to do it because I'm worried about how other people might react(my family mostly), but I do really want to do it! I don't want to change it to something weird or anything, I just want a name that I actually like. Am I crazy for wanting to do this?

I don't think you're crazy at all. There are a few other posters here who want to re-name themselves. One piece of advice though -- if you change it legally, I'd keep both Jessica and Marie as middle names out of respect for your parents. Just put whatever you want in the first name slot. Do you have a list of names you like?
