NAMES I MADE PEOPLE CALL ME GROWING UP
Because I hate my first name and I have always hated it.
- •Age 5: SimbaI had just seen the movie and I guess I felt inspired. Family members tell me I would throw a fit if I was not addressed by this title.
- •Age 11: RicoMy older sister was dating a guy named Rico at this time and I thought it was the coolest name ever. So I had everyone in my 6th grade class start calling me Rico. Even my teacher. I wrote it on all my papers.
- •Age 17: SebastianWhen I got to college I realized it was a fresh start and I could go by any name I wanted. It started off kind of as a joke until I realized that it's just my name now. And I love it! I love the name Sebastian and I am so happy I picked it.
- •These are all boy names and this is the first time I've noticed that.
