Not liking my name?
Hello, I'm new here and I thought about getting some extra thoughts on my name, since I don't really like it. So my name is "Myrto". It's pronounced as "Meer-TOE" and it's Greek.
I'm Greek and I live in Greece and here, it's a quite unusual name but not really something you never heard before.
However, I have decided I want to have a career abroad and my name doesn't sound like anything you would normally hear outside of Greece. Most people I meet, that aren't Greek, have difficulties pronouncing it. I thought this might be a difficulty in my career so I started coming up with alternatives to use. I thought about "Mya" (pronounces as Mee-a) but this is the sound for a word that in Greek means "one" when reffering to a female and I thought this might be weird for all my greek friends and family. I'm probably gonna be made fun of, by my brother, for "Mya".
I don't have a middle name and I know "Myrto" is pretty hard to turn into something else. Everyone tells memy name is nice but I don't see a career abroad with it. At least, that's what I believe. So, what are your thoughts on the issue?
