If I get my name changed to Sh'awn would it make you feel better?

This reminds me of Steven Levitt's economic study of names. It is some good work.

I hate people butchering it so bad, my name tag at work just says D. Simple enough.
Kool name. Looks like a name I'd see on the back of a big boat.

But you'll never understand how much I'd cringe in class when the teacher would get down to the P's and I'd wait for them to butcher my name. Rawr.

Well at least that's the name your parents gave you and what you're known by in the records.

When I was in class I always cringed knowing my name would be first on the list due to the first letter of my last name, and my first name is not the name I use. I always hated introducing myself to new friends/other people as my middle name and whenever roll was called in class my teacher would say my first name and everybody that knew me would go,"huh, I thought he said his name was this, not that." Besides the incessant questioning about why I chose one name over the other, it's really annoying.

Re: Federal Judge: Enough With the Stupid Names

I personally don't really care what someone's name is. I think its great to have a name that is unusual.
