However, more and more people are choosing to change their names. Below, you’ll find out why this could be happening and perhaps get some inspiration!
Changing Your Name Could Give You A Unique Moniker
Do you think your name is too common? Names like Amy, Louise, Sophie, for the girls and John, Oliver, and Sam for boys are great, but they’re all very normal. If you’d rather have a name that’s a little more unique, changing it could be the answer. Just remember, there’s a fine line between unique and crazy (crazy names will lose their novelty after a while).
Changing Your Name Could Make You Happier
If you dislike your first, second, or both names, changing your name could make you happier. Think of it this way: we love customizing almost everything else about ourselves. We change our hair color, the color of our nails, add tattoos, piercings, we sometimes even have surgery. Yet our name stays the same? You don’t have to accept it if you don’t want to.
Changing Your Name Could Help You To Avoid Annoying Jokes
Maybe your name is a long-running joke with everybody you meet. ‘Ima Hogg’ (the first lady of Texas) would have sympathized with you. If you’d rather avoid these annoying jokes and references, then changing your name could be the answer.
