    Being christened Gemma Victoria I have never really liked my name. Victoria is okay, but the name Gemma just makes me think of chavs for some reason.

    My friend suggested changing the spelling to Jemma-which might look more posh!
    I'm not convinced it makes a difference. I'm thinking of dropping the Gemma and just being called Victoria.
    Ideas?

    I think Jemma is a bit better but who really cares though, Victoria is a posh name anyways.

    Jemma looks a bit nicer, but I don't think you should let your name become just Victoria. It sounds too....old-fashioned or fake. :dontknow:

    Bear in mind that it's more than likely 'Victoria' will be shortened to 'Vicky', which in my opinion, is much worse than Gemma.

    Nobody is going to judge you on your name. Changing the spelling would only look crap and desperately "alternative" and is, ironically, incredibly unoriginal.

    I don't like my name either :fyi:
