I want to change my name but no one listens
My legal name is sophia, and I have tried to change my name various times over the past 6 years. I tried Lilly for 3 years, it was the name my mother had initially picked out for me. Needless to say I had to remind her and she butchered the pronunciation when she did call me by it. So I tried numerous names closer to sophia or sophie. I tried to get her to sit down with me and choose a name but she never would. I'm told constantly that its a beautiful name but, and I understand this is shallow, I hate the fact that it isnt special in terms of how many people have it and how It doesn't relate to my family heritage in the least.
It gets upsetting. I cant leave the house without hearing sophia or sophie called to 20 different people.
My last name is white. I went to school with a girl named sophia whiteway.
Ive finally decided on Rosey. Its my great aunts name. It felt good introducing myself to someone as Rosey, but my family will never even try. What do you suggest I do.
