Comments and insights on the name Star: | Edit

My name is Star; when I was a kid I didn't like my name much, but now I do. I was named Star because I was my dad's only girl and he had some weird interest with Texas (the lone star state). Some reasons I didn't like it was because I felt like when people hear my name they expected a skinny blond princess/ cheerleader type (which I'm not) or that they expect me to be a good at everything (which I know I'm not). When we learned science in 4th grade some of my friends would joke around and say "Star is made of gas" (because the sun is a star and it is a big ball of gas). When the movie "Superstar" came out people would always come up to me and do the "Superstar!" thing. I was also overweight so one boy in middle school and high school would always sing "twinkle twinkle big fat Star" in P.E. A lot of times people ask me if it's my real name or just a nickname, so that's kinda a conversation starter. And a lot of people would hear my name or see a name tag and think it was cool but sometimes I would get the comment that it sounds like a stripper's name. But I like it know because I don't see many other people named Star and alot of people say they think its a pretty name, so it's kinda cool.

Personal experiences with the name Star: | Edit

My name is Star and these are my personal experiences with this unusually controversial name. In grade school and even now people always used to call me Rats because that’s Star backwards. Which what’s really stupid because that’s the only think they had to insult they had considering that girls named Star are smart and most likely attractive. Also, since the TV Show “Star” came out everyone has made that comparison with me, which isn’t a bad thing because the character is talented and beautiful.
