I don’t like my name. I never have.

Some people pine for a unique name, going so far as to spell “Cindy” as “Cyndi” or removing original letters to make “Tammy” become “Tamy”. These people seek individuality by distancing themselves from normal spellings of their names, hoping that what they lack in their personalities, they’ll compensate for with a memorable and different appellation.

Here’s a thought for you originality/individuality-seekers: if your personality is not what makes you memorable, if what a person takes away upon meeting you is your name and not who you are, your name isn’t your problem.
