Names We Wanted as Children!

Hello, I’m new here & I have a question for you all- what is the name(s) that you LOVED as a child and wished (back then) that you could be called?

For me, I always thought the name Abigail was the coolest name in the world. I wanted my name to be Abigail so bad I created an alter-ego mermaid persona called Abigail (lol). Other names I loved as a kid were Will, Rose, and Victoria (the name of my childhood best friend). I’m looking forward to hearing others!

[name_f]My[/name_f] name is [name_f]Sarah[/name_f], and when I was 12 I had a teacher who always called me [name_f]Sarah[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] even though that’s not my middle name. I loved it & I really wished my middle name was [name_f]Jane[/name_f] so I could go by [name_f]Sarah[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]. (I still kind of wish this, but not enough to actually change my name especially since my middle is an honor name).

Strange you mention it because I also loved [name_f]Stella[/name_f] as a child too! Something about it was so enchanting to me.

I desperately wanted a more modern, trendy name! I thought my name was horribly old fashioned, so I used names like [name_u]Brooklyn[/name_u], [name_f]Rosalyn[/name_f], [name_u]Avery[/name_u], and [name_f]Brielle[/name_f] for internet games!

As a little kid, I remember I always called myself [name_f]Sarah[/name_f], [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] or [name_f]Crystal[/name_f] when playing roleplay games with other children! I also liked [name_f]Kat[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] and [name_f]Lottie[/name_f]! Most of these were inspired by book characters.

My first were Achille (b) and Angelica. I was five. I also have fallen in love with Clotilde (g) in the last two years of elementary school. Let’s say I was not a big fan of boy names, lol.

For a name I wanted to be named, I always wanted to be named Clara for all my childhood until I was like 13! Since I was like 4.

Other names i really loved were [name_f]Amy[/name_f] and [name_f]Crystal[/name_f] which I’d use on games. I also desperately wanted a nn i could go by… i have always had a lot of opinions on names ig :joy:
