The Name Game

1. What is your first name? How do you feel about it? My first name is Jennifer. It’s not a bad name, but it was a little hard to grow up having the same name as half of my friends (Jennifer was the most popular girls name for about twenty years).

2. Do you feel that a name can influence the course of a person’s life? Their personality? I think that it can have a lot to do with a person’s identity, either consciously or subconsciously. That said, a name is just a name.

3. Can a person’s name sway your opinion of them? Why or why not? Not really. I try to let the person speak for themselves, not their name.

4. How do you feel about the current trend toward androgynous first names? Not a fan, but to each their own.

5. Are there any names that speak powerfully to you, whether by association or imagination? Not really. Again, I let the person speak to me more than their name.
