    I hate my first name! Just because it's stupid and the fact that it was mispelled when I was a baby and therefore, no one pronounces it the right way! UGH! :phhht I just hate it!

    I had a brother-in-law who had the worst name I have ever heard of. His last name was Grass...his first was Urban. Urban Grass? who would do that to their kid? He didn't use his middle name because it was Valentine. Some parents are just cruel.

    This site is cool...just put in your name and you will get a description of it.
    You don't have to be a member either, try it.
    Ok, I did this for all 4 of us (me, husband and 2 kids) The kids, fit them to a T, they are very different and the descriptions were very different and were matched to each child. My husband's sort of matched and mine....well about 75% matched.

    My friend's family -- both parents and all 7 ( ) kids start with J. Also one grandmother, 2 aunts and a uncle are J names too... It get very confusing.

    My middle name is the name of the hospital where I was born too - Dee.

    I should have pulled that on my kids: Jessica St. Benedict and Lori at the corner of 42nd and Harrison.

    Personally I've always felt it was a sign of mental illness to name everyone with the same letters. My husband's mother's family is all "J" (and yes they are all nuts), his Aunt named all 5 of her daughters "J" names and one of them continued with the tradition. I just call them the "J" people, I can't keep it right.

    I named my kids alphabetically . Of course I didn't get too far down the alphabet and hubby didn't co-operate and named the other twin with the same first letter.
    The all with the same letter thing is freaky.

    I hate my first name - it was a made up one. I use my second , but the Govt and official people still use it, so I know by the name they use on the phone whether I should just hang up.

    I'm actually glad to hear these "J" stories...my husband's family are all "J"s as well (mom, dad, brother, sister). I got sucked into giving my oldest daughter a J name, but I absolutely refused with my youngest. (I'm not a J myself.)
