The Story of Your Name

The Story of Your Name

What is your name, and how did you get it?

Have you ever altered or changed your name for any reason? Has anyone else? For instance, maybe you go by a nickname more often than the name on your birth certificate. Which of the names you are called do you like best? Why?

If you are an immigrant, is your name one that is easily understood, pronounced and spelled in the place you live now? If not, what has that been like for you?
