If you could change your name?
« on: February 21, 2015, 07:27:34 PM »
Just for fun!
If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

I really like Corinne, pronounced cor-IN.

So pretty in Copperplate and Spencerian!

My middle name is Leigh, but I used to wish it was my first name. I loved writing it different ways. It always seemed to look prettier than Amanda.

Virginia, Ginny or Jenny for short. Personally I'd probably end up spelling it the second way because I like that spelling better, but if you're directly deriving nicknames, it would be spelled with the G.

My mother almost named me it but my dad convinced her out of it. Honestly I find it a much prettier name and much more unique than Jamie.

Love this thread, such a fun question!

I love the name Lilou (pronounced leeloo), and I also think Viola is a beautiful name, to say and to write.  :)

I'd change my last name to Fuchs, which means fox. A friend of mine is called Sandfuchs (sand fox) which is AWESOME, I instantly proposed, but he was already married when I met him :(

It has been awhile since I last 'hang out' in the forum. This is fun thread, Roseann!

I would change my name to Jessica, which is clearly everybody agree that is a female name. My name is Ernie (in Indonesia we pronounce it Air-knee). And I am a female. Once I visited Australia and listed my name at a ski rental. The guy called 'ERNIE!' Then I stood in front of him and he still shouted 'ERNIE!' And looked at my brother. :(

Great thread :)
But not really sure about changing my name

"Prasad" means gracious gift from God

Who wants to change that? :P

I came within a whisker of being a "Boris;"  I'll keep the Karl, thanks!  Plus, I could always go the "K. Richard Harris" route.
