If I had a chance to rename myself, I would definitely not name myself with letters less than 6-7.
I surfed through various blog sites to search for an interesting keyword to write about and came across this topic: “Renaming yourself”!
So here is a backstory of the time when I desperately wanted to change my name.
It was the middle of May. I was working on PEN AND PAPER (My first EBOOK, which you should check; AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.)
I was making the cover page and had to mention my name there. That was when I decided I didn’t want people to know me by the name NEHA. I was not sure what was fundamentally wrong with Neha, but I hated it because it was very short, and I could not have any short or cute nicknames. Secondly, Neha is a very common Indian name. In my contacts list itself, I have so many Neha.
Then I started exploring new names. I thought that maybe not in real life, but my pen name could be different and nicer. Unfortunately, I could not come up with a name which was decent and long enough to have a cute short nickname and also represent my personality. So I had to go with the usual, Neha Singh.
To compensate for the bad feeling of not finding a better name for myself, I searched for the real meaning of my name and what is the personality of the people with the name Neha.
Well, it was nice to find out that I am close to love and affection. The site mentioned nice things about me, like Caring, loyal, and independent, and I highly agreed with the result.
I know this all might sound funny, but I know that many of us hated our name at least at one point in our life. Now, When I got a chance to rename myself, It was hard to find what represents me completely. So, I had to accept the fact that whatever one person’s name is, it does not define them or their complete personality. I have seen some Neha cheating and being mean to others.
So, I am making peace with my short and ordinary name, but I know I am not any ordinary person.
