My full name is Santa Takahashi. My last name literally means high bridge in Japanese. When people started to have last name in Japan, it was pretty rare and special to have a bridge in the town. People usually picked their last name from where they live, so having my last name meant having high social status. My first name, Santa, was given to me by my parents. I received this name, because I was born on Christmas. My first name is pretty weird and rare, but I have never been embarrassed by my name. Moreover, I am actually so grateful I have this name, because I ended up coming to United States for school, and my name is one of the easiest names to remember. I have made a bunch of friends through making jokes about my name. Therefore, I have not changed my name or adopted a new name, and I would never change my name.
