💭 If You Had to Change Your Name, What Would Your New Name Be, and Why Would You Choose That Name?
Quite a nice and easy question. May not be relevant to a lot of people but if you had to change your name what would it be to and why.
For me I always wanted to change my name to Michael after Michael Knight in the TV show Knightrider.
Fortunately, I am very happy with my name and have no intention to change it, Gareth. 😀
By the way, is there any legal procedure for those who wish to change their birth-name?
Yes, you have to right to change your name legally.
I wouldn’t change my name anyhow, I feel satisfied that those who chose my name gave me what I deserve. Legally, many people have changed their names and even add more other names to their existing ones. But I don’t know the reasons behind it, wheather good or bad they have done it and still doing it.
Honestly i have no intention to change my name, I’m really happy with my name, Jean Pierre, both Jean and Pierre were all disciples of Jesus Christ.As a Christian it is a blessing to be called Jean Pierre. (John and Peter)
I have never had an intention to change my name, it’s a blessing for me as a Christian to be called Jean Pierre .John and Peter both were great disciples of Jesus Christ. I’m happy to be called Jean Pierre.
I’m happy to be called Jean Pierre. John and Peter both are from the Holy Bible.
I am happy with my name now just when I was a kid I wanted to change it to my favourite TV stars name
Gee if it is free to dream then Clark Kent (as long as I have the power to go with it) or James Bond.
I am with the others though in that I am happy with my name and I would not change a thing.
I would remove all English names,and put African names ,local Ugandan names.
I’m happy with my names and wouldn’t want to change them. Some parents often give their children some embarrassing names that put them at the receiving end of teasing and unpleasant jokes. These are the ones who would want to change their names.
Sometimes people who were raised by foster parents tend to want to add or change their names after discovering the identity of their biological parents.
If I had wanted to change my name, I would have changed it to Robert. I really like the wisdom of guys who bears Robert as name.
If I did, I would change the English name and replace it with another local name. I always think that when the white man came here, he confused our African culture. And these fools (Kings of that time) allowed him to do so.
If it’s by force, i will change it into English: John Peter or Peter John.However it doesn’t sounds good like in French Jean Pierre.
Hi Gareth, I think your last answer reminds me of my child too. Currently, I am very satisfied with my name. But, back then, when I was in Junior High School, I always think that my name was very different compared to most of my friend and also I think that it was not-so-cool. Does every child also experience that? The dissatisfaction with their name, physical appearances, house, etc.
I have always admired my name,and never thought to change it in any way. The particularity of my name is that it’s not originated from Africa, it’s a white name .normally in my ethnic group, the first child is named Saa and the second Tamba, the third Faya and so on.
I will change it to onuoha kelechi, reason is because, is a name that appreciate God Almighty.
Now, let’s assume that i have no option to maintain my current name, that i have to Change it in any way.
In that case I’ll choose a traditional name in my ethnic group,it Will be Saa which means the first song of the family.
I like my name, but, if I was asked to change my name, I will choose “Delight” as the name.
