I always had this thing about my girlfriends names.  When I was young I seemed to pick girlfriends on the basis of how their name fit with my last name.  Not that I was in a hurry to get married or anything.  No…  really….      Now I’m just thankful when a woman pays attention to me.  To heck with the name.  wink

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Apparently I look like a Chloe or Emily. Dunno why.

I don’t think I ever had two people I dated with the same name. Not the people I actually dated dated, anyway.
wink

In regards to the ‘do you resemble your name’ discussion, my mum once told me this.

“When I was pregnant with you, I was going to call you Emily or Flora. I thought they were nice, delicate, feminine names. Now…” *eyes me critically* “well, now I think Emily is a nice, delicate, feminine name.”

LOL

Haha!  LOL  My mom said she had picked out more than one name for me.  One was Ellie.  She said when I was born, I just didn’t look like an Ellie…and one of the other names she picked was Maegan & she used that.  The spelling was important to her…she wasn’t sure why, but she hated Megan/Megen/Meghan or any other variant.  It HAD to be MAEgan.

I can’t imagine Jocelynn w/ any of the other names I picked out while I was pregnant…and now that I’m doing it all over again…I want to have a group of names to choose from rather than just ONE single name to use no matter what.

But I know plenty of people who are Bob or Tim that don’t seem especially round.

My parents had a list of names as long as your arm for me but I didn’t suit any. After a while they just named me after my dad. Which is fine. I’m told I suit ‘Alex’ just fine. And I like it, best name there is.


Havoc with the mail and phone calls, right enough. I keep getting offered planning engineering posts abroad. One day I might accept and show up contract signed with no idea what to do.

Not that it matters. As far as I can tell planning engineers don’t do anything except tell delegate and read the paper tongue wink


Consequently, I like names more based on what they mean. If I know what a name means and I see someone with it I can ascertain whether I think it suits them or not.

You wrote down all the names that we suggested, right?  Just in case any of them happen to fit?

Can you try the fit of a name in public or do you have to go to the changingroom?

I’ve had one woman who always used to call me Susan.  I also get called Claire occasionally.  And Erin is another popular one.  Although those last two are usually over the phone, not face-to-face.  Must be something to do with the way I answer the phone at work. smile
