Name Yourself Day: What Would You Give Yourself for a Name?
April 9, is ‘National Name Yourself Day.’ Do you like your name? Do you think your life would be any different if you would have had a different name?
I was named after my grandfather, so I’m proud of my name. Many people in our families even call me Dickie, which was his nickname, coming from Dickson.
What about some celebrity kids…think they might want a name change? Now that her parents have ‘consciously uncoupled,’ maybe Apple Paltrow Martin can uncouple from her name. Actor Rob Morrow actually named his daughter, Tu. What about Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale who named their child Zuma Nesta Rock? “Thanks, Mom & Dad!” ‘My Name is Earle’ star Jason Lee gave his wonderful bundle of joy a name to be proud of, Pilot Inspektor! Heck, he could have at least spelled it correctly. See more ‘unique’ celebrity kid names here.
According to ‘Holiday Insights‘ this day…
is your chance to give yourself whatever name you’d like, for a day. If you like your name, then change your name for just today. If you don’t like your name, use today to select a new name for life!
Participating in ‘Name Yourself Day’ is simple and easy. Go ahead, give it a try. Change your first, or middle, or last name. Or, change them all. Give yourself a cool and catchy nickname. Once you’ve selected your name, you’ve gotta communicate it to all of your family and friends. This could prove to be the hard part. It will likely take time for your new name to catch on.
