Names are a funny thing. They really need to "fit" the person in which they describe. For a long time, I actually hated my name. It wasn't one of the "common" names, so as a kid, the only time I got anything with my name on it was if someone made it for me. I didn't like that all that much, I wanted the personalized everything that my friends had.
Now? As an adult, I love my unique name. I love that I only know of three other people with the same name (though I'm sure there are many more!) My name fits me. I'm unique. I'm different (you can take that as good or bad, however you'd like.) I'm a bit of an oddball, just like my name.
It took a long time for me to like my name. Once I was able to embrace the uniqueness of it.... it was a lot easier to like it. Liking my name.... first step to liking me? I hope so!
