I hated my name for almost 23 years. I always got made fun of because it's different. Lately I don't mind it as much. But I love my alias more.

I don't hate it too much, now. It's just school was a BITCH.

I considered it several times, and I may do it. I had it changed back and forth from maiden to married to maiden again, so I don't think I'd change my last name - it's a good solid name that people can pronounce. First name was always a painintheass while in public school, but I've grown used to it as an adult. I've toyed with the nom de plumes in writing of Kristy Jackinson, Victoria Brookes, and Hamadryad Jones. I was a strange teenager, I know.

If I do go through with changing my name it'd be to change my middle name for my mother's maiden name, that's all.

Only under dire circumstances. I quite like my name. It's simple and common, but I think it suits me.

In grade school I had a boy in my class with the same last name as me and I swore up and down that I was going to marry him one day so that I didn't ever have to change my name. Of course I never married him lol, but I also learned, eventually, that I didn't actually *have* to take someone elses name if I married them. So I think I'll be keeping my name for now and forever.

I like my name and the spelling of it is unusual and pretty.

I thought about it a few times but I think it would be insulting to my mum and it's not a bad name!

I pretty much like it, but I wouldn't mind changing it for protection. Could even be fun

If I ever get married I will change my last name. I can't really think of any other situation where I would change it though. Definitely won't chane my first name though.

My whole name? I'd rather go by an alias or fake name than go through the arduous process of changing my name legally. Marriage-wise? Have no bloody clue.

I always thought that changing one's first name (unless it's related to a gender transition process) as a somewhat immature endeavor, unless your parents named you something like Butthole PenisShark IV or something. I stopped thinking about it a long time ago.

When I get married I'll change my last name, definitely.

I've thought about it many times. I never liked my name growing up. It doesn't bother me much anymore. I supposed I've just accepted it.

I can't wait to get rid of my last name. It's never been something I was a fan of. My first name is kinda boring but it suits me and there really isn't any reason to change it officially. I have enough nicknames/alternatives to be satisfied

I go by "Liz". I really like it and it suits me. I do try to avoid using the name Elizabeth, though. I don't care for that at all.

Like Illusional, school was a nightmare for me in regards to my name. (I'd tell you why but then I'd have to kill you. )I wanted to change it for a very long time and even picked a different name to go by for a few years. Neither really fit me, so I felt.

Now that I'm an adult, I can't really enjoy it because it's so unusual that my chances of being recognized skyrocket.

I suppose if I was put in the witness protection program or something I would... otherwise no.

I've considered changing my last name before. I'm not particularly fond of it.

I changed my last name when I got married. But other than that, if I had to keep from being found, I might go ahead and change all of it.

When I get married I will change my last name. Unfortunately it will be something much harder to pronounce than my current last name. But I guess thats a sacrifice that needs to be made.

I changed my last name when I got married, but still use a double last name for some things like my library card (really) my FaceBook account (so old friends will know who I am) and a few other things.

Both My Man and I have have long, bitch to pronounce ethnic last names, so using a hyphen and giving that long name to children would have been mean! I didn't have any problem changing my name, but didn't realize until a few years ago that I had never contacted Social Security and let them know I changed my name. Dealing with that, years after getting married was a bitch.

As for my first name, it's really plain and reminds me of being a child. I prefer my given-in-adolescence name P'Gell, and it seems to suit me better. My father seemed to think the femme fatale from a 1940s graphic novel series suited me, due to my.....wit, as he calls it. I was only about 11 or 12 when he started calling me this, and funny that I kind of ended up looking like her (although my waist is not nearly as tiny as a comic book character) There's a picture of the original P'Gell I use for my avatar.

My parents were Catholic, so you have to name your kids after a saint or they won't baptize the kid, so most Catholic kids have fairly boring names. I grew up in an Italian, Polish, Bohemian, Irish neighborhood, and most of the kids were Catholic, so I grew up with a lot of kids with "plain" names. No "Tristans" or "Crystals" or "Morgans" or "Dakotas" from my childhood. And unlike kids born recently, everybody had their name shorted into a nick name. A Robert was "Bobby" a Christine was "Tina" etc. People today seem very weird about not allowing their kids to have nicknames, which I find weird. "No, don't call him Billy, it's William. "He isn't "Chris" he's Christoper." Although IMO, "Topher" for Chirstopher is the worst nickname ever given to a kid. *sigh*
