Changing My Name
I am thinking of changing my first name as I have never really bonded with my the name, which is Laura. I was never given a middle name by my parents. I am in my late twenties so I can change my name if I wish. I live in the UK. My surname starts with Ab and ends in S. The language I speak is English.
The reason why I want to change my name as I have never felt like a Laura. Never bonded with my name. My parents never liked nicknames so I don't have one. They never allowed me to be called anything other than Laura except endearments which were reserved for family only. The name Laura I feel does not reflect who I am inside. Even though it sounds crazy I feel a name gives people confidence. You could say I want a name thats gives me confidence in myself and self respect. I know a new name won't cure my confidence issues completely but I feel it will help me.
I have a brother called Matthew so a name that goes with his name would be good. I don't want my new name to stand out like I have changed my name.
I want something that is right for my age group, doesn't matter how popular it is just needs to be a name other than Laura. I don't want made up kind of name so I won't have complications such spelling or pronounciation issues. I like all sort of names so that is not much help. I do know I don't want a name ending in A.
I am not sure where to start in search of my new name but a few names I am considering are Sophie, Eleanor, Isabelle, Amy, Emily.
I would also like a middle name as I have not got one. I would like to honour my Mum so her name Karen could be an option or a variant of her name. She doesn't have a middle name.
Thanks for reading and I hope you can help me.
