I'm Changing My Name

My real name is common, but not really popular. I, myself, have not run into many people with my name.

But the guys I date? That's a different story.

I dated a guy 2 years older than me in high school for 2 years. When he went to the Naval Academy, I broke it off. He ended up marrying a girl with my name that was a music teacher (I went to college to be a music teacher).

Three years ago, I was with a guy in a decent relationship...until he had to go to Afghanistan. He couldn't handle the long distance. I moved, he came back and married a girl with my name, had a kid with another on the way.

The guy that I've been seeing the past couple of weeks that I'm no longer seeing as of this morning (long story), was married a few years ago to a girl with my name. He's also friend's with the previous guy.

Just find it funny I guess...

Hell, I have to avoid the whole "M" category.

(sorry sweetie!!)

If it didn't work out for me, my husband was vowing no more of my name. And mine isn't that common either.

any ideas what you would like your new moniker to be? Change it to a stripper name....don't even try Blanche or Margaret....

sorry bout the break up......

You should change your name to Xena, Warrior Princess...and DEMAND everyone call you by your full name...

I used to think my name wasn't common then I joined my fire department and in the Auxillary, of the 10 active members 5 of us have the same name!

Sorry about the guy!

Haha. I love Ogre's comment! It can't be nearly as popular as my name. At least in my age group its very popular. I've been in several classes throughout my life with several people in the same class having the same name. Its annoying :-\

Simply cannot relate.

I've met maybe 2 other Harveys in my life.

.. and three Harveys is ENOUGH!...

You could consider changing your name to "Ralph". Odds are that would cut down on the number of your ex's marrying up with someone with your name - except, of course, in San Francisco or Massachusetts. :-)

That's funny. All my exes changed their names to "Plaintiff" right before we broke up.

I'm with Ogre and vote for Xena.

I don't like mine either. But I keep it on the low low; you know; don't want to offend my mom. ;)
