In this thread, you post your original name and the name you wanted instead of the one you got now. If you don't wanna post your real name, that's okay. Like, my name is Joshua. I kinda like the name but it's the nickname my aunt calls me(Ain't gonna share) The I wanted was either Hunter or Ray. I love those 2 names! So what about you? What name did you always wanted?

My mother named me something pretty stupid. Actually my entire name sucks, and my cruel family/peers have made up really mean nicknames for it in the past. I won't say what it is, but I will say I wish my mom named me something unique or cool, like um...Alex. or Taylor.

By the way pokemon_god, my little brother's name is Joshua too. My mom was stupidly obsessed with some soap opera before we were born, and she claimed she was going to name her first son Joshua, and she actually went through with it.

Sometimes when I hear non-conventional names that I deem epically awesome, in movies, literature and the like (such as Slartibartfast), I'll say "I wish that was my name!" Though, in the end, I am satisfied with my name (Benjamin), so I have no lasting qualms.

Also Krisp, I <3 your name, I don't know why you don't. :(

I like my name, which is Max. Nothing more nothing less. I have gotten some half decent nicknames such as Mac (by my late grandfather who never got my name right so it became a running joke in my family) Massimo (which is the Italian variant of my name) and Maximillion. After reading the Divine Comedy I wish my name was something cool from that time period like Dante.

I absolutely never tell anyone my real name, but I will say the following about my real name...

First Name
I really wish I had a better name cause my name is so rare & does not suit me very well imo but have no idea what I would want it to be except maybe Lawence(as spelled here) since it's my username & all...
Middle Name
I don't care about middle names so I am alright with this one but why use my Uncle's first name?
Last Name
It's the family name so I have no right to care though by chance it could have been Nixon but not too likely...
nickname - Red
WTF is this **** about, I want a nickname like Green or some nickname a girl gives a younger cute boy they happen to know (oh god please do this in the future)

I plan to change my name in the future, though tbh I might just wait to become a celebrity(in the gaming industry of course) & use Lawence Codye as my celebrity name...

Eh, despite it being ridiculously common, I'm okay with being named Michael. I just wish everyone would stop spelling "Micheal" because it's wrong.

I wonder if Frost has the same problem...

Also my mom originally wanted to call be Shawn. I look nothing like a Shawn and am thankful she changed her mind for whatever reason. I think it was something about how I had dark hair. I dunno.

I guess I'm okay with my name. Like they say in Romeo and Juliet, there's nothing in a name. My parents were going to name me Griffin, but changed their minds at the last second. I would've liked being Griffin, but I bet if I were named Griffin, I would want to be named something else.

You always want what's on the other side of the fence.

I'm a Tim and I'm incredibly disappointed with my name. It's pretty much the dictionary definition of 'mediocre'. Three dull, miserable letters. It also happens to be one of the most common boy's names these days.

What would I have preferred? Alex is also ridiculously common, but it's got more charisma to it, especially if you use the full Alexander. I also have a thing for Maximilian. Possibly even taking my middle name and changing it a little (Steven -> Stefan) would be preferable.

What particularly irks me is that there's nothing in my full name to acknowledge any of my German family. I mean, literally half my relatives including my dad are Germans and my parents couldn't even give me a nice Kraut middle name or something.

My first name is Joshua, but I go by Josh. Honestly, I don't think I would change this. If I absolutely had to, I would choose Cyrus because the name has a special meaning for me.

Anthony is my middle name. Apparently, it means "flower", which I'm not at all ashamed of. Ever since I was a child, I've loved flowers. My childhood neighbors had a huge wall of flowers that I would run outside to smell of every day. You could say I'm quite fond of plants and flowers in general.

I'm glad to be a Joseph, because I really like being called Joey. I don't mind being called Joe, but I prefer Joey much more. Y is a kickass letter to end your name on.

If I was a girl though, I woud've liked Claire to be my name.

My real name is Chris (Christopher), my middle name and last name I'm not saying. I like my names and my last name ties them all together nicely. I wouldn't change it because I can't/don't really like any other names other than my brothers' names.

This square represents my middle (first piece), first (middle piece), and last (third piece) names. Yes, all 3 are colors. One thing I like about my full name is it's so unique (how many kids have you met with ALL colors in their name?!) It still doesn't stop me from disliking my first name though. It's so...blah. I'd rather my name be a better color like Red or Green. or Blue.

@Krisp: If that post is actually true in anyway and not just you being silly, I'm going to guess your name is Amber? I can't think of anything else that could mean.

My name's Adam, and the only reason I ever want that to change is because of the damn Bible jokes. I get it; Adam was the first man on Earth. Now drop it. In all honesty, I'm okay with my name, but I think it would be cool to have something really weird as a name. Like Omega (the Greek letter, not the word), Crash, or Fourteen. I know a family who no lie named their kid H. Just the letter H. Crazy.

That poor kid...I feel so sorry for him.

I would kill to change my middle name from Susan to Felicity. I do like my first and last names though (and I'm not sharing so don't ask).

I am indifferent towards my name. If I was given the option though I'd use my Asian name (which is my middle name), just because it rolls off the tongue better, and it's more exotic.... My first name is common but not widespread so I guess it's one of those names that you recognise but not know a lot of people with it. I do wish my last name was more exciting though. But then again theres not much variety when you're asian

True dat.

My father wanted to call me Xerxes. My twin brother was named before me, and this was the only serious name given at the time until my older brother said, "Let's name him Matthew!" Apparently, my mother thought this was so cute, she wouldn't budge from the suggestion, and it ultimately decided my final name. If I were a girl, my name was going to be Amanda and my brother Megan.

From what race or nationality does your family have origins?

We're vietnamese....

On another note, I wish people (mainly foreigners) would stop mispronouncing my name. They always pronounce it as the female equivalent. I always get annoyed correcting people.

My real name is Patrick. I used to dislike it, but I didnt have any real reason, just that I wanted a different name..like Aster Phoenix x_x
I like it now though, and it's gotten me the nickname Patchy somehow, but if I had to change my name I'd probably change it to Keith.

Hmm... Amber Rose Brown? Is that your name?
Anyways, I'm satisfied with my name except for my very common first name

I like Danny, Dan/Daniel not so much, but I tend to get called Dan by people who've known me longer and Danny by those who haven't. Daniel by my family cause I made a big fuss over it as a kid, when I thought 'Dan' was inproper :p

If I got to pick any name other than my own, it would be James/Jamie, the first of which is my middle name, and was always my name.

More than that change though, I hate my surname. It just, isn't cool. At all ): Its Bowen. I'd go for like, anyone elses surname but that.
