What's in a name?

  1. If you could have any name, what would it be?
    I think I'd be either Laura or Helen
    My real name is Gemma.

    Hmm... I think I like my name... I'd get too confused if I tried to change it! But if I HAD to change it... umm... maybe Meaghan cuz it sounds close enough to mine, and then people would know how to pronounce it!! :wink2:

    Agatha--Ha! Really, you have such an unusal name, why would you want a more common one and what is the story behind it?

    Hm.. I guess it's the images that those names create.
    For me, Gemma is someone happy and perky and cheeful..
    And Laura and Helen give me a "good girl" image
    I just like that.

    Dood... when me and a certain group of friends go out drinking we always assume our "bar names."

    I am always Isabella.

    Soooooooo much fun!
