Anna! It’s classic, timeless, easy to spell and to pronounce and it works in lots of languages. Also Anna Karenina is one of my favourite books.

My real name can be written in different ways so I always have to spell it out, which is a bore. It was unusual when I was born but had a big spike in popularity in the U.K. when I was around 18 and it’s now considered a bit naff.

All your Friends references are cracking me up! In all seriousness though I always wanted to be called either Cassandra or Violet. πŸ™‚

Hanalei for a first name.

There was a player on my uni’s football team with the surname Danser and I always thought that was so cool. So even though Hanalei Danser could be a great stripper name, I’m going with that. πŸ˜‚

Fun! When I was a kid I would ALWAYS pretend to have a different name. I think for a while I was Josephine.

if I had to pick a different name now, I’d go with Dagmar. I think it’s Scandinavian- I heard it in a movie a few years ago and thought it was so cool. I’m sure I’d get a lot of weird looks/questions since I doubt many Americans are familiar with it, but I think it’s so cool.

Gemma. My middle name currently has the same initial, and I’m seriously considering changing it when I get married since there’s no extra paperwork for it.

I’ve never liked or felt an attachment to my actual name. I have been hoping for a cool nickname for years that I could transition into using, but it hasn’t happened yet.

cmsgirl :  When I was a young teenager (circa 2003), I hated my name. wanted so bad to be a Felicity, Rachel or Britney.  Now I look back and laugh at how those names seem so tied into that era. 

I used to babysit a little girl who’s parents were Indian (of European heritage)  Her name was Radharani or Radha for short and I always loved that name so hypothetically I’d probably go with that.
