Do you like the "first name" that your mom and dad gave you when you were born? Where did your parents get your name? Well my first name is very common so if I will be given a chance to change my first name, then I will change it. It is not that I don't like my first name but I prefer to have a name that spells and sounds a little different, in other words unique. I'll change it to the username I am using right now.

I would change it to Mahlenah. That is both of my Grandmother's names put together and I have always loved the sound of that. It's Mahala and Lena with my last name initial on the back. I created as an internet name in a rush the first time I came across a forum to join. I fell in love with it. I don't use it because I seen someone steal it from me once when the board we were on was merging with another one and I didn't make the switch fast enough. So I decided to never use it again.

I like my name really! Its kinda unique and the spelling is not common to other names, but some are getting confused to it, coz they think that my name is usually named to a guy, so sometimes when they asked my nickname i tell them its REIGNE short for REINSEY for them to know that my name can be use by the female. My mother got it in the bible the word REIGN, and they just attached the other half wich is SEY. If you will look in a dictionary of names, you will never find the word reinsey but rather reign is there. Its kinda unique. I found 2 persons who are also have that name but not exactly that way. The thing there was, I am the only girl and the other are boys. heheheh....

I like my name. I was named after a grandmother I did not know. However, I use my first and middle name together as one. Margieanne....What I do not like, is the way everyone tends to shorten it to Marge or Margie.

Yes! My first name is kind of okay with me and my personality. My name is copied from a name of a person who have seen our prophet, Well if I ever get a chance to change my name from Bilal, then it will be "Arsalan" Because I love this name I dont know why but Im in love with this name, I feel good while I get to know that his/ her name is arsalan, and I'll give the same name to me :-)

I don't think I would change my first name. It is jAsmine and I used to get upset because there are so many other Jasmine's out there. However, I believe your name is what you make it. If i just started going by, nicole for example, i would feel as if all of my past accomplishments were not by me, but by some other person named Jasmine of whom I used to be. As long as your name has meaning to you, then it doesn't really matter what others may think of it. :)

My first name is Teresa. When I was younger I kind of wanted to change it. I used to really like the name Sherri, and would have loved to change my name to that. But I have really gone off of that name, now, and would never change my name to Sherri. I don't know why I went off the name exactly, but I did. *laugh* And after 31 years of living with the name Teresa, it's really grown on me. I don't think that I would be able to stand to change my name now. It would just be too strange. And I do think of myself as 'shywolf' almost as much as I think of myself as Teresa, actually. It's been my online nickname for years.

Yes i like the "first name" that my mom and dad gave me when i was born. My mom got my name from a sacred religious book. Haha, i prefer dot to change my name under nay circumstances. It`s always unique as long as you expect it to be. If you become famous, your name would flash more in the minds of the people, than any other person with your name. So, choose wisely. Good Luck! :-)
