Yeah I'd never change my name, and while my first name isn't uncommon by any means I like that xd, though I've never met anyone with the same last name as me.

I really like my first name! A lot of people compliment me on it. But I dislike my last name a lot, mainly because people make fun of it. However, a last name is a last name and I can't do anything about it unless if I get married to some guy.

well.. I never think about it.
It's somehow hard for me to associate with my name. When I look at my name, I feel some distance from it.

If you mean the way it sounds.. it's alright. My name is quite rare actually.

Not particularly as it feels a bit archaic. I usually just go by a nickname.

Ever been to Naypyitaw?

Well, yes of course. It's the capital of our country after all. But it's boring, I tell you. It's just a small rural city, altho I guess it's developing at a fast pace. The old capital Yangon is still the largest city.

I always like my real life name because it's so unique and it's something that my mother gave me so I can't help it but to cherish it a ton!

yes, I love my Name "Luna" it's a mix of whimsical and not-that-odd sounding
also, it's easy to spell and pronounce.

My name is a really uncommon one and is only 1 character different than 3 more common names. So as you can imagine no one says my name right.

I'm thinking of changing it to Auron because its spelling is really similar and is somewhat Anglicised.

Yeah, I do love it, actually. I'd say it is quite rare, where I live, though I'm pretty sure I'd appreciate it even more, if people could pronounce it correctly. :p

My first and last names are very easy to remember so I don't have any issues with them.

I'm absolutely fine with it and like it too. Not too common, not too weird and it has a nice sound.

I gave up my real name, I found no reason for a "government name" I have more people calling me Lemon than my real name.

It's quite rare here where I live but it fails to meet the same criteria in western countries. So yeah I do like it because its not the copy-paste of the same Slavic names that people use here.

I didn't like it before because I got to know that my mother didn't put much thought while naming me, but I like it now since people make puns of it, it's funny

I've never liked my first name so after my teenage years i started just using my middle name as a nickname although that's left me with this weird gap where family knows me as my first name and friends and partners know me by my middle and both is weird to the other.

I use to hate it, because i felt like my name was so strange...
people had a hard time pronouncing it, everyone made racist remarks about it that ranged from the N word to Asian slurs because they thought my name was some foreign name from like Asian or Africa or something, which it's not. Tho liking Anime didn't help the Asian ones. I have tanned skin, and I'm Native/Aboriginal, so I am neither Asian nor African and my name doesn't even come from there as far as i know, so I was confused when I was younger why they would use those named at me when I wasn't even those races. I don't know man.

Anyways it wasn't until Legend of Korra came out that I actually found a character with my name and i felt connected to. As I grew up into my 20's as well I slowly knew that my hatred for my name came from others making fun of me and that I actually didn't dislike my name at all, so I was like who the fuck cares what those little brats use to think. and that is all. XD;

Not really because my name is hard to say for people here because it starts with Z letter.

My first name is a name that's mostly limited to the geographical area where I live, yet I've never met anyone with the same name and people I meet usually haven't heard of it before either.

I like that it's unique. But I guess a downside is that people sometimes mishear it or misspell it.

Yeah I like my name. Not too short, not too long. Not too unique but not that common either. My initials are kinda cool as well. Thanks mom and dad for not giving me a shitty name. I'll try me best to do the same for my kids.

I hate my first name because it starts with "A".
But my last name is quite good. So if people asks my name, I always give them my last name only.

Yeah. Even though most people I encounter can't pronounce it right for whatever reason lol. Apparently, it means "manly, brave and strong". Huh, guess I was appropriately named

Mhm. It was specifically chosen by my dad to be distinctly Irish and it's kind of my token reminder of half of my ethnic makeup. It kinda creates social annoyances sometimes, but it's a name I'm very proud of and I wouldn't change it for anything.

I like my name, though it's not a super common name, but it's nothing unheard of in my language or country, either.

I used to hate my last name because it is easy to make fun of, but I've grown to like it.

I've been told that my full name makes for a good lawyer name.

I hate my name, it feels disgusting to say plus it’s really common. I think it’s good to have a somewhat common name so it doesn’t affect your life, although when there are 5 people in one of your elective classes with the same name it gets a bit boring. It doesn’t help that throughout middle school I hung out with a group of kids with one guy who shared my name being the main power of that group, paired with low self esteem I’d get all excited when I heard someone say my name only to be disappointed to find that they got annoyed when I responded. I know I’m acting like a whiny bitch about having a generic name, it’s just that middle school me has resurfaced with some vengeance.

tl;dr I’m still peeved about events that happened in middle school

I like my name very much since my name (Ante) is a Croatian name and is mostly only seen in Croatia or Croatian communities so I feel pride with my name
