My name is Liberty. This is a good name and it's becoming oddly popular. I do get a lot of, "is that your really name?" But do know there are some downfalls to this name as well, in history class-mostly during the revolutionary war unit-this name is horrible to have and you do get lots of teasing about it. But I still would never change my name!
