What would you name yourself?

In college, one of my dorm mates was becoming a US citizen, and as part of that process she had the option to choose a new name. If you could choose your own name, what would it be?

My real name is unusual, and I like that because people don’t have any pre-conceived notions of what a person with my name is supposed to be like. However, I get tired of spelling my name anytime someone needs to write it down, and my name seems sort of childish to me.

But choosing your own name would be difficult- like deciding what image you want tattooed on your body for the rest of your life.

It’s a good thing our parents take care of it for us.
