Say Your Name
Write about your first name: Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself?
I’m named after a Russian ballerina, and whilst ballet wasn’t my forte, I danced competitively for over 10 years and became and qualified tap dancing teacher.
That being said, I have always disliked my name, so much so that I did want to change it when I was younger, and still have an aversion to being directly addressed by my name.
What did I want to change it to? I can’t even remember. Would I like to change it now? Probably not, as much as I’m not a fan of my name, it would be weird to start being called something else!
