I just love your name Geneva!I used to call you Star but since you have such a beautiful name,I'll call you Geneva! Well,my name is a different story-I wrote Despina because it's an english version since noone can write and understand greek in here (of course I wouldn't expect that) My name in greek is Δέσποινα (Thèspena or Despina) and people call me Δεσποινάκι (Despoinaki) and now you see my username! my name is one of the names that Holy Mary has in my religion.

Oisin was the son of a great Irish warrior - Fionn Mac Cumhaill. 900 years passed by and Oisin wanted to visit his father in Ireland one last time so Niamh gave him the white horse and clear instructions not to dismount the horse no matter what he saw or the magic of youth would be lost. When he arrived in Ireland, Oisin was sad to see how weak everyone had become. He noticed a man trying to move a large rock. Oisin leaned over to help and on the last heave he slipped and fell of the horse and turned to dust.
Thanks Niamh! That's a lovely story behind your name . I would have never in a million years been able to guess the pronunciation. Well now, I know .

Given the fact this is the internet, I'm perfectly fine by not knowing a person's real name, I get that some people just don't feel comfortable in sharing it, whether it being for safety/privacy reasons or not.
Aluz is my internet persona and it comes from letters of my own name.

As some of you know, my real name is Ana. My family and close friends call me Ana. During my student years, teachers and class mates would call me Catarina that's my second name, the equivalent of your Catherine and they did so because the name Ana is very popular and it was done to differentiate from the other girls. In my class there were 5 Anas!
Other acquaintances that are not so close to me also prefer to call me Catarina.

I've gotten used to calling you StarlingWings and unless you don't want me to, I will keep on calling you by your username.
Geneva is a beautiful name and I love the fact that you get called Neve sometimes. Neve in my language means snow and it's a really lovely name.

I like Star, actually. So, I will call you that
My real name is Dubravka , so for obvious reasons of easier pronunciation, I tell people to call me Dee .

Good to know, Star!

My real name is Kasandra, but most people tend to pronounce it wrong (they say kuh-sond-rah, when it's actualy pronounced the way it looks), so I usually go by Kassy or Kitty. And occasionally Griff, as many forums I'm a part of I use it as my username.

Well, well, here we have a very informative synopsis of this thread by the esteemed Randy!
Poor Cathy, Randy!
What if you roll the R like Rrrrrrrrrandallllllll


That made me laugh too

Oh, don't worry, this is surpassing all my expectations. Quite enjoying all the ruckus, actually. And learning something new about everyone while I'm at it!
I feel like everyone has like a "name confession" or something


Thank you Nadia! I like your name too
You can't really shorten it, but you can rhyme?
Nadia
Radio?
Patio?
No, no, that's not working. Okay, how's this?

There once was a fab Nadia
Who was a TB member-ia
She had Ivy the budgie-a
And Milo the blue chap-ia

Nadia the fab-ia
Had a lovely name-ia
And also a problem-ia
Where nothing would rhyme-ia

Nadia, the charming lady-a
Inside her pretty house-ia
Renamed everything-ia
To rhyme with her name, Nadia!



I agree, this has revealed all sorts of useful information!
Those are the best names ever Quite an evolution indeed, Darwin would be proud.
I think it's hilarious that you are called all of that, this made me laugh out loud. Although I'd like to pretend I knew how to say your name as soon as I saw it, I mentally called you "Knee-um", okay, don't judge
But Nemo? Really?


Goodness, everybody, this is extraordinarily amusing!

Bahahaha, never have I heard a song using my name so thats a first! Yeah, I'm telling you its pretty hard. Cousins liked to say NAUGHTY-Yah as kids to joke around. But find that most people actually pronounce it this way too. Its always been NAD-Yah for me and my family. Although, they like calling me Nidoo too.

Geneva is a beautiful name! A hint of mystery, a badge of quality and a whisper of old European "je ne sais quoi"!

Thank you, Despina! I wish I could speak/read Greek, it's such a cool language! Awesome story behind your name!

I agree, Niamh, what a cool legend behind your name! Gaelic is just so, so cool. I've already decided like two years ago that if I ever have any children at least one will have a Gaelic or Welsh name, I love them

I agree, that is another reason I didn't want to list my name. Now that I know you all, I felt like sharing my name. Feel free to continue with StarlingWings!
Thank you for the compliment! Portuguese, right?

Yes, Portuguese is my mother language! (if there were a smiley face with the Portuguese flag, I'd proudly display it by the end of my sentence)
