Default Reasons and Confessions

Hello, and welcome to June 21st.

Just wanted to give a long winded reason for not listing my name, so everyone knows.
I've had people ask me what my name is, I don't mind at all. The reason I never listed my name is because as soon as I figured out how to do it, everyone had already been calling me Star or Starling, which I actually quite like, and didn't want anyone to feel obligated to call me by my actual name
Okay, so here's the deal. I'm creating a post for reference.
The truth is, I go by many names.
Star, Starling, etc., but my actual name is Geneva. People usually call me Neve or Gigi as a nickname.
All of these names work! Just pick one, I honestly don't care
Keep calling me Starling, if you want! Just wanted to let everyone know
This was sort of a bad reason to post something, just wanted a heads up! Thanks for reading

Geneva is a lovely name. Most of us are pretty easy going so anything you like is OK with me at least. Blessings, Jo Ann

I too think Geneva is a pretty name. Jo Ann is right we are pretty easy with what people want to be called. Call me anything as long as it is not late for dinner.

Most people call me Cathy, but most of my family call me Kate or Katie. I only get my full name of Catherine if I am in trouble and if I am really in trouble I get Catherine Anne.

I completely understand where you come from. You have a lovely collection of names (I love Geneva, Neve and Gigi equally) but when people start calling you Star, I mean, there's no coming back from that is there?

Seriously, it's good to have some names for you and it means a lot that you wanted to share that info

I wasn't sure what to call you before and now... Well I just can't decide

How nice of you to share your name(s) with us.

I truly LOVE your name "Geneva".
I personally would be most inclined to call you that unless you have a preference on how you would like to be addressed.
I always seem to have a tendency to call people by their full name.

For example, my friend goes by "Pat", but I always call her Patricia.
My husband goes by "Ted" but I generally call him Theodore.

Conversely, I sign my name as Deb (for convenience sake) and most of my friends call me that, but I actually like the name Deborah
(which should be pronounced with three distinct syllables as DEB-OR-RAH) rather than 'Deb-rah' as most people are inclined to say it.

I absolutely HATE the name "Debbie" and can not abide being addressed in that manner.

Bottom line is, if you specify what you wish to be called then I will comply with your preference.

Well, a couple of things cleared up for me then..
Star.. I'm sticking w/Star. I adore the name Geneva. Everyone I've ever known with that name goes by Ginny for some reason (Which I thought was short for Virginia)... so .. Anyway, I've called you Star in my mind for a while, so if ok with you, Star it is.

Deborah.. I've never known whether you prefer Deb or Deborah.. thought it must be Deb, since that's often how you sign. But.. I'll stick w/Deborah now.
Just not Debbie.

I'm boring... real name is Judith. Friends call me Judy... my kids and other family tend to call me Ju or Toots. I think I'll stay w/Judy, though

Geneva sounds very continental and lovely. I think that name suits you Star!
Kate isn't it funny I too am a Catherine, but I always have been shortened to Cathy, Kate, Cath which I DO NOT like .
But I was always called Catherine when I was in trouble as well. from my dear Mum.

My oh my....what an informative thread...

Starling Wings has a number of names she will answer to, and is OK with whichever one you decide...have to think about that, maybe try each out although I must say right up front gigi is the shortest and easiest to type...

FaeryBee has a preference to the full name Deborah over Deb, but it need's to be pronounced in the three syllable form to be correct...got ya covered there Deb o rah...

prettyboy has suffered silently through enough cath's from me to fill at least one page of a webster's dictionary...I shall ban that shortened version of Cathy from my talk budgies vocabulary forevermore...

Kate C....my great grandmother's name was Catherine, and she was known to me my whole life as Grandma Katie... I can't think of anything a kind hearted person like you could ever do to get in trouble with me, but if it should somehow happen, I promise not to call you Catherine Anne...

jrook....I shall call you....Judy...

My Christian name is Randall but only a few people call me that with any regularity...the wife uses it when I am in trouble followed with my full middle and last name too...
It is pronounced hard and fast...kind of like a Zorro slash...
I have had the nicknames Grinch, Skip, Chuck, and "Z"...
Most people just call me Randy...
You can call me whatever you like, just don't call me late for dinner...
