My name is Samantha and I never really liked it or any of the nick names that usually go with it, mostly because I was teased for it. Now that I'm older it doesn't bother me as much. I still dislike it but not enough to spend the money to change it.

Clementine?

When my husband became a US citizen, he changed his name.

Let's face it --- we'll never guess. There are a LOT of country songs titled after a woman. I got the impression from Cympreni's post that it's two names, though. Like Annie Mae or something.

Thanks
I love my name too, except when people decide to call me "Nat". I'm learning to like it because there are so many people that call me that. Or Natty. But I grew up getting called Tash.

Tash is awesome. Sasha is too. I'd love either of those. I'd have to kick butt if someone called me Nat though.

My SO's name is Jimmy and it's not a nickname. When his parents came to America they wanted to fit in so they gave him an American name not knowing Jimmy is normally used as a nickname. Really he's named after an uncle who passed named Jaíme or James in English. He hates his middle name too, which is also Americanized and when said with his first name, he sounds like a hillbilly.

my name is Myaisha (sounds like myesha) and I used to hate my name so much because when a sub or another teacher see my name they would say how it spells or something weird. but now I love my name and I have so many nicknames.

My first best friend was born writer. She often used me as a character in her stories. When one of my character names caught on with everyone I didn't complain. I've been going by that ever since.
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can


(sorry it's just what popped into my head)

The name is pretty, but I could see where that would get annoying (if that is in fact your name).

The first song that popped into my head was Vidalia by Sammy Kershaw. I couldn't think of anything more country than being named after an onion.

Oh, and uh... I'm Jill. I love it. My mom named me Jill Rebekah after J.R. Ewing on Dallas, but the only people who call me J.R. are my mom and Grandma. There were 2 other Jills in my grade school and high school, but since then I have only met 1 other Jill. It's short and apparently not all that common. And it is NOT Jillian.

I hated my name growing up because it was unusual for when and where I was brought up. Got teased a lot and nobody could pronounce it or spell it, horrid when you're little.
My Mum even admitted there was audible whispers through the church when I was christened! Never seriously thought of changing it though.

I don't know if thats a name I had ever heard, or just not paid attention too, but have loved it since you used it!

A friends daughter is Hanna...such a pretty name!
Aw, thanks. I babysat for a Maya in high school and I liked the name then, so it was in the back of my mind I guess. Oddly enough, I didn't even think of it as a contender for a girl's name with my first son- he was going to be Sophia. I'm really happy with her name though; it suits her.

Yeah I hate my name. Hated it then. Still hate it now! (Hannah). I have 5 friends that have the same name that's how common it is around these parts! We a have to have nicknames to stop any confusion..my mum only chose it because it was Hebrew and she wanted to annoy my grandmother. My middle name isnt as bad (Victoria) but then again I love old names like Valentina, vivenne or madeline

I always considered introducing myself as something other than my first name (like a nickname or middle name) if I ever moved to a new place. Never did though.

Also,I used to know a girl (she was a waitress) and every time she moved to a new restaurant she would use a different name that started with the letter "B". Guess she just liked to switch it up a bit.
