I hate my name. It's Molly. Yeah, I know, it's such a cute name, bla bla bla. But I don't want a cute name, I want a name with dignity and strength and worth. It sounds like shopping mall, it sounds like mauling someone. If I never hear "Good golly Miss Molly" ever again, it won't be soon enough. And even though it's not common enough connection to be a real issue, I hate knowing it also means a drug, and a prostitute, and a gangster’s girlfriend.
I guess it's cute on a baby or dog, and I think that's why my parents chose it when I was a baby. But I hate it.
My middle name is Madeline. It's not exactly "after" anyone, but there are some other Madelines in the family. I like the name, I suppose. There's nothing very special about it, but there's nothing wrong with it either. I don't really feel like a Madeline though.
I want to change my first name, in life and possibly legally too. For a while I was looking at long names, like Odessa, Theodora, Viviana, Meliora. But I think people would shorten them to nicknames, and there are ok nicknames for those, but none that I love with the exception of MAYBE Thea.
So now I'm looking at shorter names again. I like Rain/Raina, and Lena and Briar. I also like names with X or Z, but I haven't found any that I just love yet.
So any ideas of anything along those lines?
