Really not that bad of a name..I mean its English it means a female dear. Its also uncommon. Anyone and everyone who sees my last name (even people I don't know, like grocery cashiers, etc):
Is your father/brother named John?
Good thing your name isn't Jane.
Doe like a dear?
Hahahahahaha (yes that happened once, a cashier burst out laughing when she saw my credit card)
And the list goes on and on....
I had a teacher call me Natalie Doe-Doe. I had another teacher that thought my name MUST be wrong and it MUST be Dow. So she wrote Dow on everything of mine. Even after I corrected her (I was in the 5th grade) she still refused to say/spell my name correctly.
I'm getting married soon. I'm getting a new English name - Flowers. I'm so happy. Its not the greatest name for a boy to have, but for me it will do just fine!!!!
