That's why I named my kid something rare and interesting. I am sure she'll be teased but at least hers will be original.

My birth name is Mary and I grew up in a Catholic school so my parent called me Catey, after my middle name. Ive never really been called Mary but have had so many other names. They all kind of describe an aspect of my personality at the time it was given to me, I am working on a book of short stories around characters based on the names. Names are really interesting and I do think they effect how a person develops later in life. My brother Noah we almost named Hunter. He grew up to be a self imposed vegitarian and a vet. What would have happened if we named him Hunter? Irony?

Mary in a Catholic School? I don't envy you with that.

Ya it wasnt great. The nuns that taught me in 1st and 3rd grade would try to call me that but I wouldnt answer. Got me in trouble a bit but I was never called Mary at home. To this day its hard to answer to that name

RE: When is it time to change your name??
At the risk of rerailing this thread, when your name ends up on the TSA No-Fly list, the FBI's Most Wanted List, or any Interpol list, it's probably time to consider changing it. Unless your name is already Tim Hughes in which case I'd just stick with it. I mean that's the name those other guys are changing theirs to anyway. Wink

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Hi Catey

Names are generally a reflection of the society we live in or the beliefs of our parents, so quite often using a name to make assumptions about someone's personality can be correct. It is because of many other factors than eerie ones though. There are plenty of examples of quite the opposite of your brother. My fathers doctor he sees for his diabetes is a specialist in his field, his first name is Toffee.

Sorry just realised I was replying in part to Lucradis too.

I don't play with fire anymore, not since I nearly set my house on fire during the night a few years back. My parents took that whole thing rather well, my Mum was a bit pissed off about the scorch mark on the dining room table though Big Grin.
