If You Could Choose Your Own Name... - Page 2

post #31 of 37
I used to hate my name Melanie, but is has grown on me and it is not as common as a lot of other names. My mom was going to name me Melody because of her love for music but after I was born my dad decided he liked Melanie better because the name means dark or black and I was born at night. My middle name Barbra was my great grandma's middle name and my mom's first name. It means stranger. My maiden name is dutch and means happy and my married name is Patience...they both fit well. So I tell people, I am a dark stranger that is happy and patient...and no matter how well you know me, you really don't know me well.

I once knew a Welsh woman named Morfydd (pronounced, "Moraveeth"--roll the "r"). I think it means "Mermaid". Always liked her name. However, everyone was too lazy to learn the proper pronunciation, and called her "Morfid"! Yuck.

I like "Rosalie". My cat is named Marisa, which is very pretty. My other cat, Margaret, was supposed to be called "Marga", the Spanish short version of Margarita ("Pearl"), which is also pretty.

I always said if I had a girl, she'd be named Leah Miriam; a boy, Joshua David (all after the Biblical personages, and good Jewish names).

The neat thing about historical reenacting: you usually adopt a period name! In Civil War, I named myself Eveline, after an actual woman in the CW period. My "surname" was Hamilton. For Rev War, I'm still not decided: I'm leaning toward "Charlotte Lucinda". I may take a family name from the time period; oddly enough, one of those is also MY first name, but I want something different!

I really like my name, but if I had to change it I'd either want the name Summer or Claire. I've always liked both of those. I cant wait to get married so I have a different last name, I've never liked mine, way too plain sounding.

How could I have forgotten Kassidy?! I absolutely love that name! If I ever would have had a daughter, that's what I would have named her.

Kassandra is a very pretty name, too.

I also love the names Samantha & Krystal.

I'd keep my name: Kelly

When I was a kid I didn't like it, but I love it now.

My Mum knew she was going to call me Samantha since she was 5 years old. 12 years later she got her wish...
