Changing my first name. Help please.
Hello I have always disliked my first name and I have got to the point where I would dearly like to change it to something I like. At the moment my first name is Lauren. I have no middle name so I don't have the option to go by my middle name instead. My surname begins with A. I live in the UK.
I don't have much knowledge about names in general so any help is appreciated. I really would like some help in the popularity, uniqueness, can you see a 25 year old with the name etc.
What I want in a name is one that either has been used in the year I was born (1990) and if not used in that year then 5 years each way is good.
I am looking for a name that is familiar but not to popular. However the popularity of names now are not a concern for me just around the years I was born. Any names ending in A are not usable for me either.
I would love suggestions either based on the list below or not.
Some names I like ... (though bare in mind these are just ones I like the way they sound or it's meaning.) I am not sure on any popularity of these names.
Naomi or Noemi (which spelling is better?)
Renee (would this name be mispronounced as Ree-nee?)
Other names I like but can not use for different reasons...
Thank you for any input.
