That's kind of hard as I'm so used to my name. But, if I could change my name, I'd probably go for Jocelyn Kate. It's beautiful with several nn options.

My mom orginally wanted to call me Fair but decided against it. I would change it to that since I hate the name she gave me instead (Amanda).

I've never been a big fan of Cortney.
I'd choose something classic like Elizabeth or Anna, maybe Claire.

i actually used to HAATTTEEEE my name when i was younger, because i was a tomboy and hated to be called something so girly, Natasha LOL

but now.. i LOOVVEEE my name.. i dont find to many Natashas, and when i do.. i wont hear of one for YEARS to come.. its not a name that every other person has KWIM lol

so if i could change my name.. i would still keep it.. esp because my mom has had my named picked out since she was a little girl playing dolls, so it means a lot to both her and i

and my middle name is after my grandmothers misscariage/stillborn ( i dont know which it was).. but she lost the baby because of a bomb or some sort of very loud noise.. it was during WW2 and they were in Holland

I love the name Michele. Even though it is pretty common I don't know too many others, and spelling it with one "l" makes it a little different. I just think it's really pretty. My middle name is Marie and even though it's pretty I think it's too common for a mn (it's also my sister's and cousins mn). I actually dropped when I got married and just go by my maiden as a mn.
I think if I could change my name I would change it to Winter Elaine. It's different and I love Winter as a girls name. I was born at the end of winter and I just think it suits me. I've really liked the name Elaine for a while now too and I think its great as a mn.

It would be, Charlotte Diana.

But i wouldn't change my name, for all the money in the world. I'm very happy with my name, which is Grace.

I personally wouldn't actually change my name but if I had to I'd go with something like Alecia or Allison. I've always liked the nickname Ally!

Although I'm not a fan of my name, I have no particular name that I'd love to be named....something classic and timeless: Elizabeth, Claire, Caroline, Kate...something like that

Well I like my name.

But if I were to change it it would either be Kate or what I'm naming my child if the baby is a girl....Chyler. It will be more fitting for her though.

So probably Kate. Its just a strong name for an emotionally strong female. It always has been a good strong name

I would not change my middle name at all, it is after my mother. I might change my first name from Rebecca to Shannon. My parents were thinking of naming me Shannon if I were a boy, but later my mother told me that she wished that she would have stuck with Shannon for a girl as well. She really liked that name.

All of that being said, I am totally satisfied with my name!!

If I had to change it I would use my nickname Ella - thanks to my grandparents who couldn't pronounce Angela.
