choosing my own name

i had two first names as do many of my family members anna and kate i was told at a young age i could choose which ever one i wanted to be called when i was older i decided to keep both and to be called annakate, i love this tradition within my family. does anyone else have a similar story?

No, but I’ve chosen to change my name when I’m 18, as I don’t really enjoy being an [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. ^^

i dont personally like elizabeth but its a name with a lot of nn variations

That’s why I’m changing to [name_f]Lyra[/name_f], as it fits me better
