Trying to pick out a new first name
I want to change my first name for two reasons: the first being that I dislike the way it sound phonetically, and I think it gives a first impression that doesn't fit me.
Currently my first name is Bethany. I know I could go by the nickname Beth, but the "th" sound at the end isn't nice and then people think my name is Elizabeth. I don't want to go by my middle name because it's even worse.
I want a name that gives the impresion of someone who is independent and creative. I prefer three syllable names because they have more potential for fun nicknames. I'm trying to avoid names that are trending for babies now because they might seem too young for me.
Here are my top picks:
-Genevieve (pronounced the english way- Jenna veev)
-Guinevere (be brutally honest with this name. I love the way it sounds, but if you met a person in their early 20s with this name what would you think?)
What are your first impression of those names? Do you have any other suggestions?
