I don’t think I was ever embarrassed by my name, considering there were many people with the same name in the schools I went to. I was able to assimilate with the group of people that I have met over the years, in addition to getting along with new people. This, however made me a little disappointed by the fact that I was someone who could easily be found, or there was someone else who could just be like me in the world, seeing as how common my name was. I eventually came around to the notion that everyone can make it in the world, in addition to you having to strive to make yourself known and unique.
I have never decided to change my name or adopt a new one since I believe that my name is fine as it is. There is constantly a thought in my head that my name should’ve been something shorter, but nowhere close to when I want to alter it for the rest of my life.
