I have traced my name back all the way. Originally I was named after my grandmother and my uncle. My parents took parts of both of their names to make mine. I was fine with that, but soon found out that my grandmother went by a nickname. I wanted to know where that came from so I dug a little deeper. My grandmothers oldest sister gave her the nickname. It turns out that my grandmothers nickname was her sisters favorite dogs name...so in turn i was named after a dog. It does kind of give me a funny story to tell people of where my name comes from though :)

I can't say I hate my name and I guess it is better than the others my parents picked out, but I wish I had a name that was more girly. The one I picked for my name on here is pretty and I wish it was my name. My real name could be for a girl or a boy. I actually had a boy with the same name in my class in grade school.

I like my name although it is a little bit long. But when I was younger I like the name Stephanie. I don't know why that name in particular. Although when I think about that name, I have this image of a cute girl with blue eyes and a golden brown long curly hair.

i think all names are nice if the person who has them is with nice personalities though you know the person after his or her name but i think it is you who can make the name nice or not nice, so that is for an opinion but if you still think your name is what you want then you will be able to change it at the autorities right ye

My sister gave birth yesterday with her third daughter. I'm kind of worried because my sis and her husband are so weird with giving names to their kids. The first born is QYRZVYXZ (pronounced as kerz-vekz), the second one is ZYRKYNZ (zerkens) and the last one KYRSTYNZ (kerstens). They wanted their kids' name to be so unique so, they did not use vowels. Most people are amazed but I don't. I just feel that sooner or later, the kids will be having problems with their names in school. I don't know.
