The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Say Your Name, and this is what it said:
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?
And this is my response:
My first name is John.
I am named after my dad.
My first name is associated with the story of John The Baptist.
I would probably change my first name if I had the choice, so that people can stop confusing my name with my dad’s name (even the government has confused us, and so until this day my name can not be verified for certain things because the government has not fixed the mistake that they made confusing the two of us; and so my name is flagged in the government system as not verified, even though I have done everything that they asked me to do to verify my name) and because my first name is so generic and common, but I like my name and I think that it fits me; but I just do not know what I would change my first name to.
