Meaning of Name assignment:

My name is Sonja Angst. That is my full name and I don’t have a middle name. My first name Sonja means wisdom.  My last name Angst means a feeling of deep anxiety or dread. My name was given to me by my father because it was his mother’s name. My father’s mother is from Switzerland and Sonja is a very common name in Switzerland. It is spelled with a “j” instead of a “y” or “i”.  I would be embarrassed with my first name because people would pronounce the “j” in my name. Before I would correct them immediately and tell them to not pronounce the “j”, but now I don’t mind because I feel like it shows my personality. I’m not a Sonya or a Sonia, I’m a Sonja. I haven’t changed or adopted a new name because I like my name the way it is.
