Thread: My name does not fit

Ashley really was my name and it wasn't going to change. I don't know how old you are, but who knows. I certainly didn't expect it. I'm not saying Maddie really is for you, I'm just saying it might be. People can be extremely hostile to people who want to change their name--my experience was under the radar so I never really experienced it, but I've heard horrible stories about reactions from others. I'm sure you're not taking this lightly--I'm just saying. You know. Friendly fyi and all.Lise

I've hated my name for years. I can remember announcing at age seven that I'd change my name on my eighteenth birthday. My parents laughed and said I would love it when I was older.
Fast forward almost eight years and nothing has changed. Wanting to change my name has fueled my love of names, and I've searched for 'the name' for years. But I believe I have found it in Lucy (though I'm still considering and pushing for Eliza).
For more of a rebellious feel, I prefer the spelling Rebekah. Although this is the original Biblical version, the name has been integrated enough into the culture to make it easily wearable for anyone. Bekah or Beka is way spunkier than Becca.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor heaven "lena" ~ vivienne ailsa ~ felicity emma "fay" ~ catherine aiko "rin" ~ elsa verity ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai nicholas ~ ezra link ~ avery thomas ~ michael satoshi "mischa" ~ finn jeremias ~ ezekiel hayden ~ alexander rowan "sacha" ~

Not to de-rail your thread, but @aurra Lucy is very nice, esp if you keep your current name as the middle and "correct" the pronunciation back to 'ren.'Blade, MD
