does it suit you?
does it match your face?
does it suit your temperament?
...errr, i don't know really. im mellowish and fairly symmetrical, is that right?
you know my name and my face. I was meant to be called Rose though
you can thank my dad for being a douche and vetoing it
we are clearly sisters
i like it. I was suppose to have been called Freya, which is my middle name now. I like that too. Don't like Gilbert though, it's a bit clunky.
i dont know any different.
probably not as nobody calls me by my name so I don't really recognise it/feel connected to it, I dont like my 'nickname' either so in my head im kinda nameless. Don't like my name it condemed me to being put on the girls register at every school I went to, wish I had an average one
my family call me something completely different to my usual name, so i'm not very attached to the latter
it doesn't really suit me, i think
its the ending in an 'a' that did it
You started the DiS Comics Club thing, didn't you?
think the person may have had a similar name maybe, shame that comic thing never took off (unless it did and I never checked back)
I love my name. I think it really suits me too. Steven's a relatively serious name. Not overly serious, and the sound of it hints at intelligence. I also like how it's spelt not in the English way. It doesn't seem too old fashioned then. My name rules. Also, it means 'leader of men'....yeaaaaah. I think it suits my face too.
We've just made love. Name love. Beautiful sexy name love.
I didn't. I've been eating my tea. Honest.
srsly tho, i quite like my name. hated it when i was younger, but i like it now. think it fits and its moderately unusual. ticks all the boxes
It's not very 'edgy' is it? I'd like to be more edgy. Maybe if my name was edgier that would happen.
lbc is actually THE EDGE
Phil Mitchell, Phil Spector, Phil Lynott... Phil Collins.
No, just no
It gives rise to awful initials too. I have to label all my stuff in the lab "SS" :(
I wish I was like my supervisor, his initials are JwT, how awesome is that.
i dont know, thats for someone else to say i suppose.
i like it very much though.
I think the nicknames that have arisen from it suit me better e.g. Smelliot, Elly on account of me being a bit of a smelly girl.
Have been trying to phase it out recently though. My new name is Eltham.
And that is the girliest thing I have ever said
It's the best name in the world and I wouldn't change it and I don't care if everyone else hates it or if I sound smug yeahhhh
I wouldn't swap it for anything because I properly love it and I don't care if everyone else hates it or if I sound smug yeahhh
I didn't mean to write this here or twice. I should go to bed.
Godess of wisdom/war/chastity
Not THAT wise, peacemaker, not a virgin
i didn't used to like my name because NOBODY could say it right. i do like it a lot more now. i've never really met anyone with the same name as me (although they exist)
very english which i suppose people not exactly think when they look at me.
i like it.
So now I associate it with HOTT
my name has no real connotations.
Its so squashy and horrible. just sounds like someone lisping. Not happy.
that is your name, isn't it?
sounds like walking through a swamp. I feel like I should be called something more plosive and stacato, like Buck, Dirk or Rex
Josh is amazing!
sounds a bit like spacky
so yeah, it suits me just fine
its okay. if i was a girl i'd have been called emma.
(this is the 'Adam' gang, right?)
A) It's pretty and kind of elegant and has a good sound. B) It means "protector of mankind." LOL.
but it's a bit frumpy so i suppose it suits me.
Probably too good for me, to be honest.
Yeah its alright. I only know one other fella with it, so im usually easily distinguished in a crowd.
Apart from it being pronounced ecactly like lame. Thats just lame.
Although someone once told me I looked more like a Robert or Steve, which I think was a veiled insult in that they were saying I looked like I ought to have a plainer name.
I have flitted from being a Mike and Michael over the years but I've finally settled on Michael because I reckon Mike is a bit more of a used car salesman's name.
but it does suit my tempremant. I think.
Everyone new that I meet always call me the wrong name and none of my friends have ever called me by my first name. My mum doesn't even use it, she calls me Lucy for some unfathomable reason.
So no. But I like it.
but not my surname, which is a rubbish boys name (apologies to any Scotts, but your name does suck).
...is Adam. Which suits my temperament because I don't give aDAM what anyone says. Aha-ha... ha.
It's good because Adam is also hebrew apparently for "painfully funny".
(It's not really. It is Hebrew for "man" because I was the first bastard here... Which is relevant to me because I'm always, always punctual. But in an Alpha Male "MAN" sense I'm somewhat lacking...)
this is according to whatever magazine the woman in the launderette handed me to read, it was something like Pick Me Up which last week bore these headlines;
I have 50 orgasms a day since I ate pavlova
Blind Date Shocker: Roger was a blow up doll
Dead under the christmas tree after we hit the sales
Samurai sword through the head
I built my dream woman, but she still answers back
So maybe not reliable statistics
have 50 orgasms a day, though. Poor lady.
but FUNNY STORY: at customs in brazil the guy was like "shona? that's... different". i was afterwards informed that the word pronounced "shona" in portuguese means vagina :(
my boyfriend's first name is indra but he goes by his middle name, francis. why the fuck would you CHOOSE to be called francis?!? especially when your first name is not only the hindu god of war but also the KING of the hindu gods, WHICH IS PRETTY BADASS
my ex boyfriend was nearly called Agamemnon. How awesome would that have been?!
That's what the Spanish language trash cans around here say.
it matches my face cos i'm so symmetrical and shit.
i tend to think hannah's the name of totally annoying people though, i'm not totally annoying. i think some shit hannah's ruined it for me.
my last name suits nothing apart from a bliddy pokemon.
Useless little thing.
i don't feel like it does, I'm too angry to be an Emily.
Francis sounds quite gentle and serene but it was shorterned to Frank which gives off a buch scaffolder's image
i'm cool with all of them, i can't imagine being called anything else. My mum was toying between Phillip or Mitchell when i was born. I can't imagine being called Mitchell. Would people call me Mitch? i'm not sure if i'm down with that.
Oh and i'm changing my surname. Parents getting divorced and being on team mum FTW. also my surname will be "Kidd". Awesome.
Also, you must carry a great sense of relief everywhere you go from the fact that your mum didn't compromise and call you Phil Mitchell
but that of course would be silly...
and yes it is something that has crossed my mind a few times. I would have had an awful time at school if that had been the case.
but if you change it to get a contrived name, I think that might cost you indie points.
tom is quite a boring name.
