I hate it! My Grandmother wanted me to be named this because her sister Helma Lee was an old maid.... No one can ever say- spell it- I use the initials HJ professionally and my nieces and nephew call me aunt HJ. My family called me the double name and in school as well until my 5th grade teacher insisted I become Helma. I hate my name. but I knid of like being H J.
