Friday Five - Names

1. Is the name you have now the same name that's on your birth certificate? If not, what's changed?

2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?
Wouldn't change a thing. I like my name.

3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)
I'm a "III", so I'm named for my father and for my grandfather.

4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?
I dislike names that parents have stuck on kids purely for shock value or to show how cool *they* are (e.g. Dweezil). Character names from soap operas rate pretty low with me, too. Names I like? If I couldn't have mine, perhaps Robert or Richard. I have no strong preferences as far as women's names go, other than to note that a lot of women that I have been attracted to over the years have been named Deborah (or Debra), or some combination of Mary and Elizabeth.

5. Is the analysis of your name at accurate? How or how isn't it?
Collapse )

Huh. That actually seems fairly accurate. A lot of it is certainly how I often think of myself. I can be awfully annoying. OTOH, the analyses that I'd get if I were a Richard or a Robert also seem to fit. I'm not sure what to think about that.

Edited to further analyze the results.

They Left Out "Raven-Haired"...

Inspired by alterjess...

Your name of Mary-Sue gives you a very happy-go-lucky, spontaneous nature. You see the humorous side of many situations and can laugh at yourself as well as at others. This name gives you a musical, artistic nature and you would do well in any occupation in the entertainment field. You have many friends because of your generous, happy nature, but if crossed you have a quick temper, although your annoyance does not last too long. You do enjoy an argument and will at times say things just to get others going and then you sit back and enjoy the debate. You lack system and order and find it very difficult to budget and save money. This name creates a nature that can be the life of the party, but many times you can become involved in emotional situations against your better judgment. Your compassionate nature causes you to be too generous and you often give more than you can afford to.
