    Its nothing special. Dont really like or hate it. More of a 'whatever'. But probably would want a different name if I could go back in time.

    I don't like it. I'm called Samantha, but I make everyone- lecturers, friends, family, colleagues, whatever- call me Sam. Everyone even says I'm a Sam and not a Samantha, and they say it's weird when they see me write the whole name on something (or hear a doctor call it, for example). Not too keen on my middle name, either. I like my surname as it's a fairly rare and unsual one.

    I like my name (Alex), but I don't like the fact that I'm officially called Alexander, as it sounds way too formal and it takes a relatively long time to write on school work, exams and anything remotely official.

    I changed mine by deed poll
    I was Jamie but so many people assumed I was female before they meet me so I changed it to James (it also make my business cards sound more professional and formal)
    so hated the old
    love the new

    I ve always loved my forename and middle names I changed my surname 4 years ago and although I like it, I ll be glad to take my fiancés surname next year as going back to an easily spelt surname will make life much easier (and I ll get to have the same name as a pride and predujice and heroes character which I think is cool)

    I quite like my name, but it irritates me when people can't pronounce it, even though it's said phonetically.

    I like mine, I like how it's unusual, but it's almost always mispronounced by teachers. I dislike my middle name and surname though.

    I hate my name, its so ugly.
    I feel so embarrassed when someone asks me my name and I have to say it.
    I feel like it pushes people away.

    That's a bit of a lame insult but admittedly it did make me laugh!

    (On a side note, Damian Lewis is an awesome actor )

    It's alright tbh, I like it because it's different. But so many people seem to struggle pronouncing "Jordana" though

    My name is Rachel and growing up I hated it however in the last few years I have come to like it more

    I am also relieved as it was my Mums choice, my Dad wanted to call me Morag (sorry to anyone who is called that but I don't like it!)
