Hello,

Well mine is Jeremiah, nicely translated into French as Jeremie/Jeremy or shortened to Jer/Jerry. I guess I kind of like it, it isn't overly common either.

One name I kinda like along the same lines is Jonathan.

My birth name is Gregory, but nobody calls me that except my parents and one of my teachers who is very ignorant and wont call me Greg, which is what I prefer much more.

My first name is so common that I've never thought of it. Drives a couple of my friends crazy when we're out though. They hear people calling "Steve, Steve !" and can't understand why I don't react. Of course with names like Lorna and Dasha and Heidi, I guess I can understand what they mean.

BTW, Andre is a fine name. Just imagine if it were Fred.

Mine is Neil....rather rare here in Canada. I was born in the UK where it is a more common name. I don't mind having a rather rare first name because my sirname is VERY common!  Smile

Andre is cool.....makes you sound French. Being from Vermont, do you have French-Canadian background?

Neil

My legal name is Frederick  Angry  Big thumbs up

While that's my legal name, I have never been called by that. My parents called me Ted, named after baseball legend Ted Williams, however I find that name rather juvenile, plus I've had to explain a thousand times over to people how I get "Ted" from "Fred".

I prefer to call myself Erik, by taking Frederick and simply leaving F-R-E-D-E-R-I-C-K.

My name is supposedly the most common in the world (Michael) and is in many languages (English, French, Russian and Czech/Slovak plus others).

I don't really like Michael though...about 75% of the time people automatically call me Mike and I like that better.

My name is Nicholas, the third most common name in the USA according to a survey I read. I hate it. The only person that calls me that is my grandmother. She also accidentally used to call me Christopher when I was a baby Confused

I was called Nicky until I was 13 and thereafter just Nick. I don't have a second name, so I can't even call myself by what might have been a better alternative. I've often thought of changing my name, or adding a second name, but try calling yourself by something other than your regular name and it sounds really weird. I wouldn't mind a different surname either - one that you don't have to spell every time and one that doesn't have 49 different variations in the spelling.

Same as CPDC10-30 here, my first name is Michael. I don't mind it at all, in fact I quite like it, I appreciate the fact that being born in Malta to Czech parents and living in Malta all my life, my parents didn't give me a hideous, typically Slavic name but went for something international. What I hate is when people spell my name Micheal, which is unfortunately quite common.

Yeah i like my first name, it is unique and I don't know of one other person who has my first name. The only problem is with the pronunciation.

No, I don't like my first name (nor my last name for that matter).

Too stereotypical. That's why I'm changing it next year to either Leroy Jackson, or Gustavo Scheinermeister.

My first name is Graham (which I don't like), but thankfully I'm called by my second name, Thomas, because my parents liked the name better.

On the internet, most people call me Tommy.

My friends call me Tom, Tomo, Tomas, tomass, Toomash or Tomash. Loads of variations!

Actually, I very much like the name John, even though it's very common (understatement).
