Robert; meaning "Bright fame"

Mines fairly uncommon now, But I think it sounds quite noble and upstanding.
Its a strong name, sometimes I think its a little too strong! I like the more informal Rob with my friends, and am even known as Rupert to some (Quite a charming name in my mind - strong yet with a sensitive side, as opposed to just strong)

My surname is Marshall (Legally) - another very strong surname, although I think that Marshall is actually one of the best surnames you can have!

I love my name! Strong but with a soft, sensitive side - like a lion bar that has melted in your pocket on a summers day.

no. Ive always liked nicknames that could apply to both males and females.. Sam, Alex etc.. mine is very feminine and old-fashioned, which i am not.

I like my name when people actually call me Jennifer, I don't like Jenny at all, but I will tolerate Jenn, I just think Jennifer sounds much nicer.

My surname is too boring and short, which is why my parents gave me a weird first name

I'm not fond of my first name, it's a bit... common. And I'm not keen on my second name, just because... it's odd. :/

I quite like mine.

People not being able to pronounce/spell my last name is annoying though. It isnt that hard :confused:
Same here but with my first name its too long (8 letters)
wish my parents called me something like Bob :rolleyes:

if i change my name will it hurt my parents feelings?

I like my first name, but (mainly due to me being conviced I'm going deaf), I misheard it a lot...

If you say:
There (they're / their),
Where (wear)
Bear
Care
Tear
Stare
Stair
or words that sound like that... or even say "Steph" I will normally respond :p:

I also love my surname. I'll be gutted when I get married and change it (like the traditionalist I am!). My name rocks!

I like my name because it's quite unique. I always get major hassle trying to spell it and people new to me need to have three goes at correctly pronouncing it.

All good though, people with interesting names do better in life (i heard).

Love my first name- really unusual... though it is annoying that people can never spell it or pronouce it correctly

Don't like my surname- its boring, and i think it sounds stupid.

The only real problem I have with my name is the fact that it's misspelled constantly, which really irritates me. Just because the name is normally spelled with a Y doesn't mean mine has to be.

my names alexa as you may have guessed!

i like my name, although i hate it when people shorten it to alex, my dad tried that once when i was about 3 and i told him off haaa.. people often are like oh alexandra.. im like no, its just alexa, not short for anything.
although i dont mind being called lexi or lex, just not alex, for some reason ive always hated it.
