I do like my name, but everyone spells it wrong, which annoys me, but not to the point of making me want to change it.

If I didn't like my name, I'd have legally changed it a long time ago. I know my parents put a lot of effort into giving me my legal name and so I keep it with love and pride.

I don't like mine, but I have too much other stuff going on now to get into changing it.

I'm okay with it, but I wouldn't say I actually like it. That is, I don't like hearing my own name at all. I wouldn't change it, though, because no matter what people call me I'd still dislike it.

I'm okay with my first and middle names (though they're a bit masculine for me and I'm not too fond of that), but I don't really like my last name. It's a complicated, German mess of a last name that every other time gets spelled wrong. I'll still keep my name as it is for now, though if I found the one, I may adopt his last name. When I used to consider myself a straight-up MtF trans (now I'm up in the air about it), I was considering changing my first name to "Catherine" (Similar to my mom's middle name) and my middle name to something different, of which I remember not.

I feel bad for saying that there were other names I'd rather have than the one I got because it was something my mother gave me. Even though I would like to, I could never change it and possibly hurt my mother.

And to think that I'd undergo a muggle name?:mlp_pout:

I'm not fan of my name, it's so common and it annoys me to turn my head whenever someone call out that name when they're not referring to me.

I've always loved my name, and have no plans whatsoever to change it.

I actually really like my legal name, makes me sound like a character from The Sopranos or The Godfather. Plus, the surname is pretty rare, so that's always good. :mlp_yeehaa:

The only thing I don't like about my name is it isn't really an old man name so when I get older it's gonna sound weird.

I have threatened to change it to Skeeter though.

I've come up with the solution! I'll just go by my middle name when the time comes.

I'm alright with my name, it fits me. And it's a very pretty name and one you don't hear too often. :please:

I like that my name is very uncommon. It makes it easy to know when someone is calling for me. But do I like my name? Maybe. It's okay I guess.

I don’t like my name much, but it’s the only name I’ve ever known. I don’t know if I’d ever change it.

I’m pretty neutral about my name, although it is really common thus I get confused all the time

really I kind of like my middle name more

It's ok, it probably wouldn't have been my choice but I wouldn't change it.

I wish it would have been more gender-neutral (something like Ash or Avery maybe), but aside from that its OK I suppose.
