Unwanted name

1 Comment

When I was younger I do remember wanting to change my name.  I used to tell my parents all the time that “I’m going to change my name when I grow up.”  Everyone was always asking me why I wanted to change my name because it is a cute name and a super easy name to pronounce.  I would always tell them that I wanted to change my name because my sisters both have flower names and I felt left out and I also wanted a middle name because they both have middle names.

I used to want to change my name but I have come to terms and have realized that I really like my name.  I think back now that I was named Natalie for a reason and it just fits.  I really love my name and I don’t think I would change it for the world.  I’ve had it for 18 years now so I am pretty happy with my name.

If and when I get married I think that I would change my last name.  I would either change it completely, hyphenate it, or make my last name a middle name.  I have had my last name for a really long time now and it is not a common last name.  It may be hard for some to pronounce but I like my last name a lot.  I’m not completely certain on what I would do yet but that is what I would do for now.


One thought on “Unwanted name

  1. It seems as if you had a little resentment with the whole issue of feeling left out. I’m glad you were able to come to terms with your name. I like your name too!
