If you could pick a name for yourself, what would it be?
I love my name. It's fairly simple (with only two syllables) and is very easy to pronounce. I'd bet that my grandkids someday could pronounce my name right. However, if changing my name wouldn't be considered an insult to my parents, I think I would change it to something more... posh and regal.
Don't get me wrong. I really do love my name. LEAH. It's pronounced "Leyah". But if it's even possible (which is NOT, i'm sure) to pick a name for myself when I'm still a little bundle of joy, I think I would have picked these names...
- Aura - "\a(u)-ra\ as a girl's name is pronounced AWR-ah. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Aura is "wind". Greek mythology: Aura was the goddess of breezes. The word is used to describe the atmosphere surrounding an individual." I like the name because of its simplicity. Sleeping Beauty's name is Princess Aurora. My grandmother's name is Aurora. Aura. It's just like a shorter version. Hihi.
- Alexandra - "\a-lexa-ndra, alex(an)-dra\ as a girl's name is pronounced al-eks-AHN-dra. It is ofGreek origin, and the meaning of Alexandra is "man's defender". Latinate feminine form ofAlexander." I really like the name because it sounds regal. It's like, whenever someone utters this name, the thought of Queens and Kings aways comes to mind. *grins
That's that. What about you? If you could pick a name or two for yourself, what would it be?
