Don't mind the first name that much although it's a bit boring (Claire), but last bit sounds crap (Harper).

i love my name - both of them! (chinese + norwegian) they both sound nice, the chinese one is special.
But like andy.... ppl never call me by my real name (s)

_Andy_
Nov 19th, 2002, 10:34 PM
Well, my real name is Anders, CLAIRE! lol It's kinda cool though. In high school, you can't go by your real name. But when you get up in life, chicks dig it. They like the foreign ones and the semi-foreign ones

Stinger, my real name is Danish, Andy is a cover up

Nov 19th, 2002, 10:37 PM
Yeah, people who change last names for non-marriage purposes are weird. Doesn't matter if it's Cocksuckle or Bardyrstranolovokadova

Anders is a norwegian name too (well DUH, since denmark ruled in norway for more than 400 years) I like Anders, it's cool, and i ahve many friends called that :-D it's popular ;-)

Nov 19th, 2002, 10:40 PM

I despise my name (Joseline)

_Andy_
Nov 19th, 2002, 11:09 PM
Joseline is such a gorgeous name. What are you talking about! Listen to a French person say it, that's what you need to do, and then pronounce it the French way, if it makes you feel better

_Andy_
Nov 19th, 2002, 11:15 PM

salima
Nov 19th, 2002, 11:19 PM
About Stinger i need no crystal tennis ball. No . I don`t believe in that. But Stinger wil have a happy life, everyone on the board understands why.
And we might meet on Øvrevoll.

Andy, yes I am Norwegian, with some eastern genes. ( I can see who you want to marry)

Big Fat Pink Elephant

Stinger, Øvrevoll is a place in the Wild West, and I have been there a lot. but is getting more sceptic to horses over the years.

Anders can end up as a relative. eeeeeeeeek

I like my first name (Sebastian) but my friends have fits over its length. *g* I hate it when they shorten it to Seba or some such. yuck. I'm getting used to Seb, though. Sort of... My folks call me Jan, but it feels too weird comming from anyone else, so most don't even know about it. : )


Oh, and Claire is not boring! My mum's called that, albeit in Croatian (Jasna).

I love all three of my names, Garrett, after my great-grandad, See Wong (my Korean name) and Viko in Slovak.....

David - Common but mine

Spears-Gellar - Share it with Britney and Sarah Michelle (yes, it's my real surname as i had it changed)

Britney_SMG_MJH - Of course i love it :-)

I like my given name. I was going to be a Bri Anne, but it is best I ended up a Rebecca.

I like my full name. My freinds all call me Becca, which is kind of cute, if not irritating sounding after a while.

I despise being called Becky.

My surname I'm not found of, but it's just a name. I'll try to marry someone with a cooler one.

I hate my name (Sarah) it's just so boring! There were three of us all in the same class for primary school, and two in high school!

Cassius
Nov 20th, 2002, 02:10 AM
I like my first name - Matthew. Because it sounds.......sort of..........regal and important:D. But it can also be shortened to Matty (which I like) or Matt (which I hate. A matt is something you walk all over and wipe you feet on, so I don't like being called that)
I also HATE my surname (I'm not going to tell you what it is), and I'm going to have it changed when I'm 18 (which is on the 28th of this month:bounce: )

"my-Kuh", did i pronounce it perfectly. ;-:p

Surely Flemish don't have a problem pronouncing your name?

My name is okay, though a bit too common. All my life I was Tineke, when I was a teenager I wanted to be called Tine (which is my official name), now I don't really care if they call me Tine or Tineke - I do think it's kind of cute when friends call me Tineke though.

I love my last name, very Belgian yet not too common.

Sarah, I love the name Sarah. Who cares if it's common, it's common because it's a nice name. Same goes for Matthew. I don't really like Matt or Matty, but Matthew is nice.

Nov 20th, 2002, 09:44 AM
I detest my surname (I aim to marry someone with a nice last name *cough* :-D) but I like my first name - not too unusual, yet not too common... :-)

Plus, it is the name of a Princess... *sigh* ;-)

good thing you cleared that up, my tongue was all twisted lol

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:32 AM
Maeike - actually... i didn't know that you pronouced your name "my-kuh" (K tried to explain me that.. pff... i'm slow... ) so i always had a "norwegian" pronouciation on your name, and it sounds cool! :-)

one thing to you flemish ppl.... what is that "-ke" thing you put after your names? or have i missunderstood.... :-o

Marianne is quite common in norway... i perosnally know 7 or something...... but not one of them is called Marri ;-) one of them is called Marris.... that's just not me... lol

Rene
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:36 AM
i like Marianne, and also i like René ;)

Maajken
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:38 AM
Marri - the -ke thing in the end is a form of a diminutive, like e.g. in English you'd say Billy instead of Bill

(although you couldnt possible call me Maei :-o)

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:39 AM
*wavey*
Where are you from? René... from Denmark? lol - just a guess!

Rene
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:40 AM
Denmark????
why do you think that? :confused: i am from South America ;)

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:40 AM
oooh!! thanks for that maeike!! hehe, and i learned a new word too!!! *putting "diminutive" into my vocabulary* :-D

coz i know a René from Denmark..... ops.. sorry :-o *red face*

Rene
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:42 AM
René is a french name, Marianne, but don't worry many people even thinks that i am woman because Rennae-René. hehehe

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:48 AM
ooh yeah.... french... hehe..... i like most name pronouced in french.... except names (especially norwegian) that starts with a H.. like Hege, Hilde, Håvard... Hanna.. Hanne... ever heard french ppl say those names? lol.... it's crazy....!

My sister's official name is Maai and she hates it. My parents named me Tineke, my sister Maaike, but they didn't want us to be stuck a diminutive in our name when we'd be older, so our offical names don't have the -ke. Tine is a common name in itself, Maai isn't.

Nov 20th, 2002, 10:51 AM
i don't know norwegian, Marianne but their names should sound nice, why you don't like them? mon chéri? *smilie*

Marri, I always thought your name was said like Mary, but allie made me aware tonight that it was said Mar-ri

btw, thanks hun :kiss:

my name is dean...i like it because it is not too common, yet everyone has most likely heard it before.....plus it's nice and short ;)

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:54 AM
actually Rene, i think i'm a "ma chérie" ;-D you are a "mon cher" :-D
Well, french ppl have problems with that H word.... since when a word that begins with a H, they usually don't pronounce the H....

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:56 AM
Joe - yeah, it's pronounce Mar-rii.... most norwegians have that rrrrrrrr on R's... :-D

Rene
Nov 20th, 2002, 10:56 AM
yeah, my bad, Marianne, my french is not too good. in whole the romance languages we don't pronounce the H, Marianne

Nov 20th, 2002, 11:32 AM

I like both my real name and my name here. Even though my real name is actually a spelling mistake on my Birth Certificate :eek: However, it actually makes my name sound a lot better :p

Oh, name here? They're my initials :D

Mateo Mathieu
Nov 20th, 2002, 11:41 AM
I don't mind my name as well :) Matthew is my real name but you can call me Alex if you want ;) :o My last name is an Irish name and I like it.

My name is okay i supose, Nikita- Francess. My last name is different for Australia and most of the world i think Treseder. I think form cornwall or something i dunno :o:o

Giuliano
Nov 20th, 2002, 12:25 PM
Yeah, in french a h is always silent. There is a disjonctive h in some germanic words and in that case you don't make any liaison between the word and the article but you probably don't care if you don't study french ;).

I used to find my name too common but I kind of like it now although noone can pronounce it right except for the french-speaking people. I mean, have you ever heard an italian saying Julien (most probably you haven't :p)? It comes off as you-lyenn :mad: :D.
But I can't blame them, there is a nasal sound at the end and it only exists in a few languages.
I think the germans (austrians) can pronounce it quite well though.

As for my surname, I don't know. Some people used to make fun of it but it has style :cool:.

Candy946
Nov 20th, 2002, 04:36 PM
I don't like my first name, its too common and sounds boring. I
used to be embarrassed about my surname because most people didn't know how to pronounce it correctly, but now it's not too bad.
