I guess some people don't like the names their parents had given them. I actually have met someone named Rambo, Michael Jordan, and Bruce Willis as their first names and they seem to not like it when people tease them. So if you could change your name, what would it be?

It would be nice to have a name with a number on it. Something like se7en. Or like that kid in a movie who's name was s5am, where the 5 is silent. It'll be so unique. I just don't know if you can have it registered. I guess that is why we have usernames in the virtual world.

Yes! That would be really unique. I mean, people would get to have alphanumeric names! It is cool in its own way but I think things would get a lot more complicated.

I am very happy with my name. I like this also. All my known persons knows me with this, so why should i change this. I have never felt also to change my name. One life, lets go with only one name. Have a great day.

Hi, I like my name but not happy with my surname. I have thought several times to change my surname with court affidavit but have not done so. The cause is people already know me by my surname and even if I change now they are not going to call me or address me with that surname. So let this go off and would seriously think in next life lol.

I have a very odd name. I have never really thought about changing it but it would be nice to go with something shorter and more suited to me. In theory it sounds simple to change your name, but in reality everyone would still use your old name. It would be very hard to suddenly have to start calling a friend or family member by a totally different name. I do wonder though why some parents name children the crazy things that they do. You are stuck with the name for a life time and it looks like parents would really put more thought into it.

Hmm, i don't really think the name matters, actually it does matter but its on you have you take it on yourself. If you're a sensitive person who can't handle a few jokes, or take control of situations... then maybe , but I don't really think its that important...

I don't think it is so important to give yourslef a name. It means a symbol to me, wchih makes other easy to call me and when it is mentioned, others know it is mine. I have no special preference about it. I will not change my name even if given a chance.
