    I like mine, though it feels so formal to me when people call me it (Isabel) because it always gets shortened to Izzy xD

    And I've never met anyone else with my surname, people also have problems pronouncing and spelling it...

    Conall - 'High and Mighty' in Irish

    Pretty rare, even in Ireland so I like it.
    Wow, I love your name =) It just sounds right. Haven't heard too many Conall's really.

    I don't know about my name (Elspeth), lots of nicknames I suppose but they never get used. What do people think?

    I like my name, but only the way it's supposed to be pronounced (in Bengali), not the British pronunciation of it :p:

    Your user name reminded me that my Mum initially wanted to call me Stella until my dad said no and I got called Elizabeth Ann instead.
    Huh that is interesting! I have used Stella since my previous sn, Bella476, was slaughtered by the Twilight films/books. I like Stella a lot more, although I do like my name!

    Don't have a middle name but was once asked why it wasn't Amy Louise, as though 'Louise' is my mandatory middle name... I wasn't impressed.
    I get that too. People always forget my middle name and guess that it's Louise, but when I tell them it's not they always say they thought it was, just because it begins with an L! :P

    My dad's grandmother was called Amy Louise. Guess it was/is popular?

    I like my English name name enough, I wouldn't change it though because it was a name given to me by my parents - it would seem a little harsh to discard a name they gave me at birth...

    I love my Chinese middle names though

    I do like mine :] However at the moment everyone on facebook has decided they're going to pretend they have double-barrelled names too.

    The only annoying thing is when people ask what my name is and they're like "Laura-Jane? I only asked your first name. Oh, it is your first name? Wait, you have two names...." Apparently the concept is too hard to understand.
