My first name is one of the 20th most popular names in the US, even though I've never met someone else named such, apart from my father. Almost 1.5 million people share it, but 99.79 are male... meaning there are women out there with a very identifiably male name.

My last name is more common among black people than white. Either there were a lot of people with my surname owning slaves, there was one person with my surname who owned a LOT of slaves, or when they were freed they just really liked my surname and took it for their own.

I'm guessing the first.

I love surprising Chinese by properly pronouncing their name. Apparently most foreigners don't even try. I love the poetic side of Chinese names. I know a girl whose name translates to Spring Day Dawn(surname included).

P.S. Pinyin is evil! Eeeevil!


Yeah, most of the time people just ask if they can call me something else, which Hais comes in (sometimes they even struggle with that lmao). Me too! Hais is written as "Sea Poem" ^^~

I hate my first name... Why? Because people always feel the need to sing some sort of song with my name in it to me...
I like my second name better.... In Japanese...

I love my full name! In the U.S it sounds so foreign but it's super pretty :3

My names are rather plain and boring, but I'd keep it; I'm named after people I respect, and I like (although not love as much as some related names) the biblical meanings the names originated from. Of course, on top of that, I've just always loved the name "Jim" (although I hate "Jimmy") *shrug*

I'm fine with my name. I have considered changing it in the past but I can't really come up with anything I like more, although a slight spelling modification might be nice. Cory can be pretty gender neutral, too, so that's a plus.

I wouldn't change my name but for some odd reason I feel weird as crap when people call me by name. Does anybody else get that way? Like I'm cool if my friends or strangers even go "Wassup bud?". But when people call me by name it just feels weird.

I mostly only find it a bit weird when strangers use my name and I can't remember them. I know where I work it can't be helped but it is still odd.

Haha yeah those moments I don't like especially. It makes it even more awkward when I can't remember their name so then I feel kinda bad.
