England, because they were 'weird boybands' that no one else had heard of (that was their name for One Direction: 'weird boyband', and from that moment on ANY artist from the UK that I liked became a 'weird boyband', even though they weren't a boyband at all), I wasn't allowed to read Jane Austen or Shakespeare for enjoyment, I was picked on for doing so, I wasn't allowed to have pink streaks in my hair (at age 15, I thought I'd look really cool with dark pink streaks in my naturally rything that's happened to blonde hair), and so on.
I think that, even though I'm not in public school anymore, everything that happened to me in the past, it's made me over sensitive to what other people say/think about me and what I like.

Trust me when I say this, it doesn't matter what other people say. The only thing that matters is doing what you enjoy and what makes you happy. You'll probably grow out of caring a lot about what other people say. You can learn a lot from being bullied and picked on. It really can only make you stronger if you learn from it. You just have to learn that other people's opinions are nothing. I guess that's easy for me to say as I don't believe in normal. I like being unique and original. I think normal is boring and I don't think everyone is "normal".
When I was your age, about five years ago, I was a planner too. I loved thinking about what I'd name my baby if I had one then. It was all fun, nothing stressful. I don't share names, because I honestly don't care about other people's opinions. However, if I do and the opinion is different than mine, I laugh it off. I don't let it deter me from a name I like or even LOVE. I probably wouldn't like their name ideas either.
Good luck, I hope I helped you a little today.
