Changing my Name

Hello! I’ve wanted to change my name for awhile now, but I just can’t find a name that fits me and my personality!

I would describe myself as a cross between an introvert and an extrovert. I would call myself an ambivert. I love new and old literature. [name_f]My[/name_f] favourite books are [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]’s [name_m]Web[/name_m], The Chronicles of [name_f]Narnia[/name_f], [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_m]Potter[/name_m], The Bridges of [name_u]Madison[/name_u] County, and A Tale of Two Bad Mice. I also like owls a lot! I always try to find names that mean owl, but I can’t usually find any. It’s sort of funny, because I am somewhat of a night owl myself!

I like names that are vintage but not dated vintage. I like names that are unique but still “heard of”. I like name’s that are not on the top 100 or 1000, usually. Names that aren’t very popular are what I like.

I’ve always been a nature person. I love going for walks, hikes, swimming in lakes, and being adventurous. I’m sort of a daredevil. I mentioned how I’m a night owl right? Well, I also get up really early. Usually around 5:30 or 6:00. I accomplish a lot of things early in the morning.

I also love to draw! Drawing, painting, colouring, sketching. I love to do it all. I also really love space! I love all things space related!! Astronauts, the moon, planets, stars, super novas. I also love drawing designs for spaceships in my sketchbooks. I think I might become an aeronautical or aerospace engineer one day.

Some of the name’s I have considered are:
[name_u]Meredith[/name_u], [name_f]Clara[/name_f], [name_f]Zipporah[/name_f], [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], and [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]. But none of them really suited me, besides [name_u]Meredith[/name_u] and [name_f]Clara[/name_f]. But I’m still not totally sure on them. I also love the name [name_f]Chrysanthemum[/name_f], because it has significant meaning to me. So something on the lines of [name_f]Chrysanthemum[/name_f], [name_f]Clara[/name_f], [name_u]Meredith[/name_u], [name_f]Zipporah[/name_f], [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], and [name_f]Eloise[/name_f].

TIA!

My first thought was [name_f]Athena[/name_f] since her symbol is an owl.

I thought [name_f]Athena[/name_f] as well, and I know its not incredibly common but still normal. I do love [name_u]Meredith[/name_u] as well. Are you interested in the name’s nicknames at all? I am also a HP fan and adore the names [name_f]Luna[/name_f] and [name_f]Fleur[/name_f]. Maybe you can decide on a special word or definition that is important to you and find names that mean that? I am also legally changing my name but can’t seem to find the right one, its so hard! Names I think of that are dated but not to much are ones like Amber and Holly, the later is not too common.

I first thought of [name_f]Fern[/name_f] when you said Charlottes web! I know it’s shorter than a lot of your other name options, but I think it fits your personality. It’s unique yet heard of, vintage yet not dated, and it’s a nature name! I also like [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] for you!

My first thought was [name_f]Neoma[/name_f], which sounds familiar because of [name_f]Naomi[/name_f] but is hardly used at all. It’s a Greek name that means new moon which checks the boxes of nature theme and night themed.

I think [name_f]Neoma[/name_f] [name_f]Chrysanthemum[/name_f] sounds quite nice.

[name_f]Nascha[/name_f] means owl. It is pronounced “Nah-sha”.

Another option would be to choose a name that means knowledge or wise. An owl was a symbol for [name_f]Athena[/name_f], goddess of wisdom and strategy. Also, in Ancient Greece, the owl was a symbol of higher wisdom.

As in the previous post, I thought at once of [name_u]Artemis[/name_u]. And you could use the nicknames [name_u]Ari[/name_u], [name_m]Artie[/name_m] or [name_f]Missy[/name_f]

This is probably a far out idea-
What do you think of [name_f]Olwen[/name_f]? The style seems like it would suit. It’s very unusual, but not unheard of. Best of all, it almost has ‘owl’ in it. In fact I think Owl could be a nickname for [name_f]Olwen[/name_f].
