Maybe in kind of an opposite way. My name is Alyssa, and while I love my name, I don't really lean towards similar names. The names I like are more traditional/Biblical: Lydia, Leah, Adah, Luke, Jonah, Malachi, Seth. I also draw from my heritage (which is...well, let's just say my mom calls us mutts, so there's alot in our family tree), mostly my Italian, Irish, and Scottish sides, so that's where names like Quinn and Mackenzie (for a male) come in as mn.
It's not that I had some horrible experience with my name, or I hate it or anything...on the contrary, I love it. I'm not one to say "well, my name became rather popular or it's dated and so now I'm looking to name my kid something more traditional". I just like those names. I always loved reading historical fiction, Amish ficiton, and the Bible, so I grew to love those names.Alyssa*Ada*Lydia*Aria*Leah*Elijah*Peter*Paul*Calvin*
"See, it is not enough to leave school and just desire to succeed in this cold, cruel world. Because then you've simply become a part of it. You must also have the desire to change it. And to change it, you'll need your fine mind, and his good heart" ~George Feeny, Boy Meets World
