I hate my name, but I’m not sure if I should change it.

My name is Avery, my middle name is Grace, and my last name is   Payne. I’ve hated my name since I was little. im not sure if I should change it or no. My parents would throw a fit if i did, I’m 14. Should I change it? if so, what name? My brother’s name is Hunter David, if that helps you come up with name.

For now I would look at names you like and ask friends, teacher etc to call you by those and see how they feel. I think most people have negative feelings towards their own names because they are more a reflection of your parents then you.  There are so many beautiful names and your own ends up feeling meh, to your own ears.  

If in a few years if you still feel you don't like your name and have found one that speaks to you and you love being called then yes change your name.  I also think waiting is a good idea because if I had changed my name in high school it would be so different from the name I'd choose now two decades later.  Best of Luck to you!
