I have to tell you that being called Little Anything is annoying to a teenage boy. I also wasn't thrilled to have an obscure ethnic name when everyone else was Jim, John or Bob.
Currently, I know a dozen Megans/Meghans, including my good friends Megan, Meghan and Megan. What's it like to have a common name? Is the inevitable confusion a pain?
My favorite name is possessed by my good friend Aimee. She explained to me that it's the French version of Amy. Her ancestors are French Canadians.
Do you like your name? Is it common or obscure? Did you ever want to change it?
