    Do any of you have names that you hated as a child? I am Katiebear online , but my real name is Martha Reaci after my two GM's. I always went as Reaci. It wasn't until I moved to Kentuckey from Colorado that people knew how to pronounce it. I guess it is an Applacihan SP? name and my GM was from Georgia. Nowadays unique names are in. but when I was growing up (late 50's to early 70's) my name was considerd weird. I still don't really like it, but I don't like Martha much better. My DD says since I am so Crafty and domestic that I am living up to my Martha ( as in Stewart) name. LOL.

    Well I was teased about my real name and was so glad when I finally got nicks. I was called "francis the talking mule". I hated the teasing. And I hated my name being misspelled too.

    Hi Katiebear. My online name is Joanie2 but I've always hated to be called Joanie because it made me feel like a little girl. Problem was that I was very tiny as a little girl. When my mother was angry with me she'd call me
    Joan Lorraine and then I knew I was in trouble. My name is after my father JOhn, my mother ANita and my grandmother.
    As I got older I disliked being called Joanie more and more.

    My name is Cathie, and when I was in school there were always 2 or 3 more, who spelled their names much more interestingly than I did (Cathy until I was about 12). I hated it then, wanted to be Bobbie or Candy or Trinket or some such. My husband loves my name, and now I don't mind it.

    Well I grew up with a name ..Charisma. Who wants to live up to that? I don't have alot of problems with people mispronouncing it now...but all during school ...I could always tell when a new teacher came to my name on roll call! But I gues syou get used to it and it doesn't effect you anymore.
